I have been saving this picture of the palm trees in California until I could figure out the perfect way to document it. So last week when I went shopping on my day off... ( gotta love days by yourself shopping.. so relaxing. ) I spotted a paper pack at Michael's that had awesome colors and summer/beach papers. Also it included purple, if you scrapbook at all- you know purple is a color that is far and few between. I had to grab it. Although I'll be honest, this is probably the only picture I have that even qualifies as "beachy". So hopefully I'll find some summer photos or take some soon so I can use up the rest of this paper pad. Or maybe you'll be finding some happy mail coming people's way.
Anyways, I also saw this challenge on Let's Get Sketchy that I thought would be perfect for this page.
There was one page in the paper pack that had various patterns in triangles so I cut them out to use on the page. I put together bits and pieces of other sheets to make the background as well as fussy cutting the glittery palm tree to add to the side. I think it turned out fun and summery. So exciting!!
You know I'm a girl from the midwest, when I get excited about seeing a palm tree. )
Hope you guys enjoyed this layout!! Also, go try out the challenges at Let's Get Sketchy! So far this is my second one, and they are so fun as well as easy to incorporate!!
