Today I not only have layouts to share but Simple Scrapper Sale info too! Now’s the time to join friends! I’ll give you more details later so keep reading. 🙂

saleMy template/sketch LO this month uses an old Story Starter but it was perfect for this picture that Molly took when we went hiking and iceberg watching a few weekends ago:

family photographerI kept it pretty simple and left lots of white space. I used Amy Tangerine kraft Thickers (totally love these!) and coloured them with black Wink of Stella for sparkle and colour. I also added some black embellishments below the photo for another pop of black:

family photographer - textureI’m definitely going to need more of this drywall tape which isn’t available in Canada. What?!?!? I have to give a big thank-you to Cathie who gave some of her stash (and thanks to her hubby who had to go shopping while in the States, lol!) So…. any US friends want to ship me a package? 🙂

My Story Starter LO uses a background I made while demoing in class and an old, old pic from an awesome exchange trip I took in high school. It’s a really grainy photo but it has some of my favourite people in it and brings back the best memories!

back of the bus 5I used some old fabric frames from Dear Lizzie and layered them sideways to mat the photo. Then I added a bunch of phrase stickers from Simple Stories Dear Cheese line – it’s not just for Disney memories!

I actually hand wrote my journaling – shocking – and used the last words as my title, which I highlighted with Thickers:
