May pages for Simple Scrapper: Having fun

I had a lot of fun with the sketches and story starters for Simple Scrapper in May. The theme involved scrapping hobbies or free time, and since that is my favorite subject for scrapbooking, I relished scrapbooking this month. Here is the first page I did:

Our family went to the butterfly house at the Science Museum. Though I took a ton of photos, I loved how the sketch disciplined me to pick only my favorite shots of each family member to put on the page (truth be told, I added more photos than the sketch had by shrinking them!). I used a Studio Calico kit for this page.Here's some details:

I put the stars there to reflect the butterflies' migration route.

The next page records something my husband and sons love to do--play games--and the times this past spring break that I joined them. We played four games, so I journaled the details in a list format. The photos came from selfies we took and tweeted during the game (gamers love Twitter).

I used Crate Paper's Boys Rule and October Afternoon's Daily Flash on this page. They were both playful and bright but also grungy, and It made me happy to see how well they went together. Here's some details.

The script font is Mission Script, one of my favorites. It welds well.

Thank you for checking out my pages for Simple Scrapper! I hope you are inspired to scrap your hobbies and how you spend your free time.
