These last few weeks I've been busy with the family. We picked up my mom at the airport, here for a two week visit, went to the beach and the pool, shopped for school, and trained for a 5K, which we'll run as a family this weekend. I also finished a book, Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, which was probably my favorite read of the summer.
So now we are left with 12 days until summer is done and school returns. Since I've been stockpiling layouts that I haven't posted, I thought I'd post one a day until summer's end.
Here's the first layout I made but didn't post:
Note: that iris photo on the lower left might be my best flower photo I took this year. I take a lot of pictures in my garden.
I made this as a "Things" page for the Big Picture Classes class Twelve. I don't like scrapping purple in the slightest, but dang, I love purple in my garden.
You'll also see this page on Thinking Through Design on a post about mixing fonts. I did that technique, a favorite of mine, with the title:
Lots of layering with the title. I experimented until I got the look I wanted. Dimensional stickers from Stampin' Up! are my friend. :-)
I used my Studio Calico August kit Summer of 69 for this page, apropos for an end of summer page.
That little flourish I stitched down was a part of a bigger die cut; I trimmed it off and used it alone, keeping the other part for later.
What's your favorite color? Mine is yellow, though I honestly wear purple more than yellow, LOL! What's your least favorite color? And do you scrap with them regardless of how you feel about them?
