This Summer I'm Sitting On Top Of The World

Gecko Galz owner Leanne has her own challenge going on at her Fripperies and Butterflies blog for the month of June:  Summer Cheesecake Challenge.  She even is providing you with a free collage sheet to use. See all the details HERE.


Summer is always a time to feel carefree and happy, especially after an icy, snowy winter and a cold, wet spring.  We get to shed those woolies and umbrellas.  I chose this image from the collage sheet to embrace my theme.
"I'm Sitting on Top of the World"---"just rollin' along"....."just singin' a song"

This also is my Tag Tuesday 1950's themed tag.  To see all the 1950's inspired tags, please go HERE.

Les Paul and Mary Ford recorded this song in 1952.  As a little girl, I loved watching their television show--of course it was in black and white.  I thought the "world" reinforced "just rollin' along"--similar to Patti Page sitting there waiting to join in (although I'm sure she was on a "stool").

The space themed embellishments?????  Influenced by the 1950's sci-fi martian movies, of course!

This is a digital hybrid card.

After layering all the png files, I added the text before printing.  I used a black Sakura glaze pen on the dots and attached a bit of velvet cloth ribbon.

And of course my printer is telling me I'm out of yellow and black inks--perhaps why the tag isn't as bright as I would like.

I love your wording "digital hybrid", lol! I think it's the images you blended together. Love the retro look and feel of the tag.
