School's out and summer has officially arrived! This is our favorite time of year. Everything seems a little more relaxed. We're outside more and we take more photos. Which means I always have some fun summer pictures to scrapbook.
I took this photo last summer of Cory eating a popsicle (frozen juice bar) on the deck. It was right after July 4th and the American flag was blowing in the breeze behind him. I've been on the lookout for a patriotic collection for the photo and Vintage Summer from Little Yellow Bicycle was perfect!
I used a simple design, employing the 5 Things I Love About You pocket. LYB has pocket embellishments in each of its lines. Sometimes I use the pocket plain or use a specific insert as an element on a card or layout. But, here, I used the pocket as intended, with journaling on each note card.
These journaling cards have a lot of room, so I gave each one a headline with letter stickers, then wrote about that topic. The cards took me longer to do than the layout itself, but I felt so satisfied getting this on paper. When I was done, I tucked all the notes back in the pocket. It was a great way to include a lot of journaling, but not take up too much space.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your week is off to a great start!
