Happy summer everyone! I have to say, the absolute best thing about living in Minnesota are our amazingly gorgeous summers! Living on a lake has it's perks too!
Here's a page I did documenting our trip to the Redwoods National Park. I used my Silhouette to draw and cut some tree rings and misted/distressed the background paper. I'm entering it in Scrap Our Stash's Tic Tac Toe Challenge (I used twine, Red/White/Blue and numbers).
Once again I'm having some real fun using the Simple Stories Cabin Fever collection to document my recent trip to California! Thanks to Let's Get Sketchy for the great sketch and the Blue/Read color scheme. I'm also grateful to Challenge YOUrself for the handwriting challenge! I often want to hide mine, but I know its important to document our memories!
More Simple Stories! <---Yep! You're going to be seeing a lot of this collection for this month! This layout was inspired by Brenda's sketch and Rochelle's color scheme using brown, red and navy blue.
Thanks Stuck?! sketches for the inspiration on this one! Check out their sketch:
This page was inspired by Paper Issues free cut files (which are always fabulous!). I was challenged to use the geo star, but with this specific layout felt that it would be better as a subtle background element. The journaling reads: "There are few places in this life where we can enjoy true solitude. I found a few quiet moments here in the Redwood National Forest. The beating waves combined with a soft breeze created a lasting memory. Redwoods National Forest.
Thanks to all these blogs for the fun challenges!
