Well, on to the fun stuff! Here is a "summery" layout to inspire you to scrap all those every day photos of your child playing at the park! Here in Oregon we have to wait until after the 4th of July to even begin to consider to be dry and warm, so any dry day is spent outside!
This is an easy layout featuring bright pictures of my son playing at the local park. This came together quickly because I used a great cardstock page of coordinating accents. The Super Star title, the circle accent, the star tag and frame all came from the same cardstock page!
While I love using coordinating accents, I also like to make them my own and add a little flair. I did that by matting a few in bright blue adding copper brads to all the accents. A little bling never hurt! I even used brads to hold down the word strip that was the bottom border.
The second page is much like the first, with more cute accents and a photo frame that continues the same theme.
I had this strip accent left, so I used it to add the "journaling" about the park we were at. I also added two more copper brads.
