Beat the Heat Again

It's so hot in Texas, I'm hoping that by reposting this layout that I enhanced today will help cool it down.  Unrealistic Optimist? There's another reason too...

Please "Like" Me...Okay, I'm not really that desperate but I am in the running over on the American Crafts Facebook page to win a complete collection of my choice plus $50 of AC cardstock.  The layout that is featured is the one I posted Sunday - Beat the Summer Heat.  In order for me to win I must have the most "LIKES" on my layout by 7/15 at 9 am.  If you are crafty and do not already follow American Crafts on Facebook, now's a good time...lotsa good inspiration over there!

After seeing the layout online I just had to go back to it and work on it a little more.  It just didn't feel complete.  Do you ever have layouts like that?  So, I added some white caps, like those I used to see growing up on Canyon Lake, I doodled with white around the aqua cardstock, I added more stitching to better hold the journaling tags and I moved the upper right flowers around.  NOW I am loving it!  Here's the revised layout, which unfortunately is not the one on the AC Facebook page but I'd love it if you'd Like it anyway!
Supplies: Kraft Cardstock, Mr. Huey Mist Orchard, American Crafts Margarita Collection - Empanadas Glitter Finish 35429, Horchata Varnish Finish 35432, Aruba Glitter Finish 35425, Santo Domingo 35430, Merengue 35438, Printed Long Variety Tags, Variety Buttons Elements, Paradise Remarks Dimensional Stickers, Signo White Pen, Misc Orange Embroidery Floss

GIVEAWAY!
If you can take like two minutes and "Like" my photo I would REALLY appreciate it.  Wait, that literally just made me think of something...I will pay forward the chance to win someting with you.  I think I'll put a little prize package together for everyone who "Likes" my layout over there and comments here about my layout as well.  What will it be? Definitely something made by American Crafts!!! So, you have until 7/15 at 9 am CT to participate.  And thanks for the many of you who already voted for me.  I will make sure you are included in the giveaway. Also, don't forget to play along with the Lazy Days of Summer challenge over at The Studio!

Here's some close-up shots that I didn't include in my precious post...

Hey Heather,
You were our winner of our Destinations collection, but I can't seem to find a place to email you, so I hope you see this message. With CHA sneak peeks this week I am afraid we won't get to announce our winner (you) until after the week is over, but didn't want to make you wait. Please send me your address to sales@simple-stories.com

Great LO. Love the way you layer the waves. Adding that bit of white to the waves made all the difference, but it looks great either way. TFS.

I liked your page over at AC's FB page. In my opinion, yours really is the best, even without the little touches you've just added. Good luck in the contest...you were ahead by like 12 when I liked you. Go, Heather, go!
