Hello Monday! Looking back at last week, I guess I should have scheduled another week of Bygone Blog Posts, as this place was definitely neglected while I caught up from vacation. But this week should be better, I promise! And to kick things off, I thought I'd share a spring break layout (photos from last year, not last week - I only wish I was that fast!)
S U P P L I E S :
The new BasicGrey Adrift collection was a perfect complement to my beach photos and I used lots of the papers with this circle design. And I just have to shout a big YAHOO! for a line with lots of navy blue in it! It's a color that is underrepresented in scrapping lines and I'm so happy to see it show up in large quantities here. Mixed with the bright orange and aqua, it makes an ideal color palette for beach and water photos!
I layered lots of the smaller die cuts, transparencies and stickers over the circles, coordinating the embellishment with the paper below it. I love to use foam dots to pop these elements up and a bit more dimension to the design.
I used a combo of a die cut word and chipboard letters to spell out the title and the journaling is typed on simple white cardstock strips. As a finishing touch, I added in some neutral wooden buttons (from older BG collections) that help complete the circle theme.
Before I go, just wanted to give you a quick heads up that on Thursday I'll be posting this year's Blogarage Boxes for sale! If you're new to my Blogarage sales, you can read more about this annual event here and here. I've spent last week clearing out my scrap space and packing up these popular mystery boxes full of fabulous supplies. They always get snapped up pretty quickly, so wanted to give everyone fair warning that they will go live for purchase on Thursday at 5:00 am MST. The proceeds will benefit animal charities, so be sure and stop by to grab one!
And have a marvelous Monday!
