Hey friends! I’m back with another layout already. We have had loads of rainy weather so far this summer, and that has really helped my crafting time. This time around I created a summer reading themed scrapbook layout.
I again started with a sketch from the Scrap A Sketch Facebook page. They have a new free sketch every Friday so there’s always loads inspiration to be had. For this week’s sketch I flipped it on it’s side to accommodate my photo’s orientation.
The photos I used are of my two kiddos doing some summer reading. Our library runs an awesome summer program each year with prizes for the younger ages and gift cards for the older. My kids spend some time every day reading to earn their prizes.
The photos paired wonderfully with the Our Story Matters collection from Echo Park. The collection has stacks of books, typewriters, pens, pencils, etc. that made embellishing this page fairly easy. I also liked the B sides of the paper in this collection. They are interesting, but not busy enough that I felt I couldn’t use several together.
Okay – time to get my little off to her daily swim team practice. Hopefully, I’ll be back with you all again soon. I’d love to have you come join my buy in group on Facebook where I share new collection releases and I’d love for us all to share our creations there too. Until the next time…stay crafty!
