LOAD Day 1

1 Sep

Today begins a layout a day for LOAD!

Here is my layout for Day 1:

Summer Swim Lessons

LOAD: 10 Layouts

Supplies: Letter Stickers: American Crafts; Everything Else: Echo Park Summer Days and Sweet Summertime

The challenge today was to scrap a goal, and one of our goals this summer was to get The Girlio into swim lessons-hence this page!

Love the EP Summer Days collection, and the multi-colored pattern really made me think of waves and ended up being a perfect way to use up a scrap-I didn’t trim it or the pink piece at all-that’s just what I had left!  There was a little boy in the picture too, but I covered him up with stickers on dimensional adhesive as I really wanted the focus to be on The Girlio.  I had also been wanting to make a layout that went from one corner to the other, so that kind of decided the overall design.

I actually made two layouts today-in an hour and a half!  A very big record for me-still can’t believe it.  I am saving the second page for a day when I don’t have time to make a page, and will post it then.  Love that I was able to make two pages in such a short amount of time, and I love them both.  I think the key was that I printed my photos to Walgreens today, and so I was really inspired to scrap them today too!
