*IBS July Release: You

Good morning!!!
It's DAY 2, of Inspired by Stamping July Release Hop.
This months release are exceptionally amazing!! 
They are trendy, masculine and perfect for any novice and/or expert scrapper/stamper.

For my project today, I am showcasing "ARROWS" 
I have been trying to fill my albums and when I saw this stamp set, I knew how I wanted to use it.
This is my son...Yes, he's 16 and growing!!
These arrows were perfect for this layout!!
Stamping the arrows, towards themselves, really gave focus to the picture.
Love the grungy look of those arrows too, really adds to the masculinity of the layout.  So I had add additional grunge to the page, by creating worn spots and stamping the sentiments that come with this amazing stamp set. 

Here is a is a peek at the two stamps, being showcased today:

So hop along and check out this month's new release and the amazing creations created by the DT.
Trust me you won't be disappointed at all!!!
