Good Morning :) I love Summertime it's my next favorite season with Spring coming in 1st. I love the sights and smells of summer. Today I have a layout that is inspired by Summer Nights but it is about Summer Days. Lasting Memories new challenge this week is Summer Nights color photo for our inspiration, using the colors from the photo:
I added one extra color to my layout and that is a kraft color:
The layout is is about a walk I took yesterday with Buddy around our yard. This is Day 6 of LOAD SummerMini: Lovin the sights of Summer and this summer our sights have mainly been at home :) Nothing wrong with that :) lots to see in the yard.
I used the sketch over at Scrapbook Challenges sketch #494:
So I used my newest counterfeit kit Easy Livin' for my layout, the blues and pinks were perfect match for the inspirational photo :) I used some of I heart Summer collection stickers for the title and some embellishing of the layout.
 The journaling was added to a card from the cutapart sheet in the kit. Had fun creating the scallop embellishment from the papers in the kit and using 2 handheld punches for it.
A close up of the photo collage I made. Very impressed with the Instagram photos that I took with my camera for the layout. Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see your creation linked up over at Lasting Memories Scrapbook challenges.

  4. love that you used a collage instead of one large photo for our challenge AND you used a CKCB kit so it's even better! kate (SBC)

  5. Great layout Tina!! I love that you went with a collage... and that one photo of you is adorable! Love the florals and the beautiful beauty of nature that you captured in your photos. I like the kraft in there too, it actually grounds the layout and ties all the colors in together. Beautiful!
