I'm so excited to share this layout today -- it's the one I mentioned yesterday! These pictures are from a family camping trip that we take with my dad's siblings every year. (My dad is the 4th of 8 kids, and I am the oldest of the cousins...my youngest cousin on that side was the flower girl in our wedding!) Anyway -- we spend as much time as possible on the lake while we're there. This past July was the first time we were able to take all three kids camping...and God bless my parents for putting up with in their camper! Anyway....I thought these pictures were perfect with the campaign Close to My Heart is doing until January 31. (It's called Serendipity, and you get amazing patterned paper, textured cardstock, textured die-cuts, and a stamp set that compliments the paper and the die cuts! It's awesome!)
In this last picture, I was showing that I made a pocket between the mat and the bamboo cardstock to put more pictures. The little circles at the tops of the pictures are to pull them out with. (Everything below is CTMH.) This layout was from CTMH's "Imagine".
Paper: Serendipity (chocolate, dutch blue, and bamboo)
Stamp sets: Serendipity, Rustic Alphabet, Doodle Alphabet, and Adorable Backgrounds
Accessories: Serendipity die cuts, hemp, pewter brads
Techniques: edge distressing, paper tearing, rocking and rolling (in chocolate on WATER), stamp kissing (in dutch blue on WATER) -- I'd never "kissed" before, so this was fun!
See you soon!
