"Summer Fun" - Sketch #112 from The Scrappiest

I'm really enjoying these weekly challenges from The Scrappiest.  It's a good way for me to finally work with some older photos that I'd put aside to be scrapped a while ago.  This layout was a lot of fun to do, trying to give it a bright summery feel. 

Here's what I came up with:

I used some miscellaneous papers that either Jen gave me recently or I found for 25 cents in the LSS sale bin - can't remember which.  The plaid and the orange sheet are from October Afternoon.  The yellow sheet is from American Crafts.  My title was looking a bit plain so I cut a sun sticker (from Echo Park's Sweet Summertime line) in half and put it behind the word "summer".  I think it added a nice subtle touch to give a summery feel.

This is sketch #112 from The Scrappiest:

The weather still seems unseasonably cold here but we have a fun and busy weekend planned with visiting my parents on Saturday and then a "game day" on Sunday with Jen and Rob.  Wishing you a great weekend too!

Until next time...
Susan :-)
