Snap & Scrap Your Summer

Two Peas in a Bucket has an event going on right now called, Snap & Scrap Your Summer. Everyday they have a new post with great ideas for scrapping your summer stories. They also have a challenge on each post. You should definitely check it out.

One of the challenges is to use non-themed product on a summer page and another is to use smaller photos. I combined the two to make this page.

I really love how this turned out. Isn't it fun when everything comes together so nicely? I "shopped" my stash too; trying to use up some older product. That always feels gratifying.

The next two challenges are to make an in review page and to use a bunch of embellishments. I combined the two to make this page.

Since I was using smaller photos, I decided to make an 8 1/2 x 11 page. Shocker, I know. Quite unusual for me. I made the photos strips using the contact sheet option in iPhoto. Super simple and I love how they look. I also painted the white tags blue. Don't you love those little birds? So cute.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a fantastic and safe holiday weekend.
