Heartfelt Event Day At The Beach Layout


As promised, I'm back with the last of the layouts I submitted for display at the Heartfelt Events around Australia and New Zealand.  If you've seen my layouts displayed at an event, I'd love to know!

This is a photo I've scrapped before, but it's one of my favourites of my three children.  As I think I probably won't get the layout back from SU I didn't mind scrapping it again.  We were on a weekend away at the beach and although it was too cold for swimming, it was a lovely day for a walk along the beach.  I spotted the pier and thought that underneath it would make a perfect place for taking a casual portrait of the kids.  I think you'll agree that I was right!

As I mentioned previously, I was a little challenged by the lack of alphabet dies, as we were unable to use anything that was retiring.  I got around this by printing the title straight onto the DSP from my computer and printer. I got really lucky that they lined up perfectly!

When I scrap I very much like to keep the focus on the photos, and this layout was no different.  It did need some embellishment though, so I decided to make some flags using my pennant punch and a few toothpicks.  They are so super-easy to make and are a lovely feature on the page.

DSP/Cardstock: Storytime DSP, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
Other: Perfect Pennants Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Dimensionals, Tombow Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots, Computer and Printer, Toothpicks

Thanks for looking at my layouts for the Heartfelt Event.  I'll be back soon with a 'reject' layout.

Bye for now,
