As soon as I took this photo, I knew I wanted to blow it up and write about my son's love of rocks. I used Summer Lovin' Large journaling tags and Summer Lovin' Tiny Tags on this page. Here's some details:
I also made this two-page layout:
I found that I took many many iphone photos this summer vacation for the first time ever. I'll still make a vacation album, but I decided to put all (most!) of my Instagram photos onto a two page layout. I made a 2.5 inch template on a 4x6 print using PSE 10, then dragged all my Instagrams onto them, printed them, cut them apart, and made this page. I used Summer Lovin' Pennants and Summer Lovin' Cutouts.
Finally, an unusual mini
I got these baggies in a Studio Calico kit. I had to think about how to use them--I wasn't going to use them on a page, and I haven't really fully Smashed yet--so the idea to collect bits from vacation and put them in the bag finally became what I decided to do. I used Summer Lovin' Cutouts and Summer Lovin' Note Tags for this mini.
