So make sure you hit all of us Lisa, Connie, Kathy, Julie, Joanne, and the ISC blog and leave a comment on yesterday's post.

All right, let me get to today's post. Betsy has given us the task this month to follow a layout for a 6x6 Scrapbook page. Well, I had never ever done a Scrapbook page in my life so this one was really hard for me ;P. No , really, it was hard for me. But guess what, I managed to do a little something and I might add that I am all right with the outcome if you consider this being my VERY FIRST time :D:D:D.

Scrapbook Layout "Road trip Are we there yet?"


Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle, DCWV light blue textured cardstock for the base

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Faded Jeans to ink up the distressed and torn edges

Stamps: 4x4 photoslide (included in the now available Summer Kit) the word Escape from the Picturesque stamp sheet

Accessories: Heidi Swapp ghost shapes tags which were colored with Ranger Alcohol inks in orange, corner rounder. Heidi Swapp brads and buttons.

Here is a picture and the contents of the now available Summer Kit which you can purchase for only $ 20.00 so if you use the discount code TRAVEL you can save 15 %, how about that?

I have gotten away from scrapping, but having a template sure makes it easy! Lovely tote! Love how you layered the daisy!

I'd never guess it was your first scrapbook page - looks fantastic. But I looooove that card tote. Not sure why, but the daisy reminds me of an Edelweiss on this....LOVE it!!!!
