I Love Summer & Friends

Hello from Pigeon Forge! :) We are on a family vacation and I happened to bring along some scrapbook stuff. So of course, I had to make a page. I saw the Paper Bakery Sketch and I knew it would fit perfectly with my Gossamer Blue July kit and Paper Bakery Capture 365 July kit. These kits mixed so PERFECTLY. I couldn't have asked for more awesome products to work with. They are the perfect summer combo. I will be using this more in the future, believe me.

Here is the sketch I used:

I had seen a layout by one of the PBK design team members where she flipped the sketch so that the photos were on the right side. I actually started out doing it that way, thinking that was the way the sketch was. Then I noticed that the sketch actually had the photos on the left. I ended up liking it better that way anyway! 

I loved the diecut card from the Simple Stories Sn@p collection that came in the PBK Capture 365 kit. And I am trying more and more to use "premade" titles, like ones on journaling cards, background papers, diecuts, premade phrases, etc. So this one I knew had to be used. I didn't want it to say just "I Love Summer," so I added the "& Friends." I wasn't sure about the detached journaling card on the bottom right of the page. It's a little "out there." But I just swallowed hard and did it. 
I actually think I might like it....? 

Oh, and by the way, this page is also for the Whimsical Twist challenge to scrapbook your summer! I've been doing that a lot lately! 

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Now I'm off to enjoy more of VACATION! :)
