Hello there, summer readers! Marie here today with a little journey down memory lane. Summer is a hard scrapping time for me. With all three kids at home all the time, we spend our days playing, going to the park, running through sprinklers, and eating lots and lots of popsicles (recently all BEFORE 10am because it has been SO crazy hot here!) That leaves me melting into a pile of tired goo by the end of the day, with nary a bone of motivation to scrap left in me.
So how do I fix this? I went on a little journey. I went back through the scrapbooks and pulled some of my favorite summertime pages.
A few things I notice when I look at these:
1. They are simple-yes I am generally a very simple scrapper, but the journaling is short and sweet, and the products are not varied, just journaling spots and letter stickers.
2. They are colorful! Bright bold colors speak to me in the summer, and the impact gives these simple pages a bit more interest.
3. Even though they are simple, I am instantly transported back to these moments in time, and that is what scrapping is all about for me.
So off I went to the WCS Pinterest page and found this great sketch by Celeste
and turned it into this
As you can see, simple layout, short and sweet journaling, and bright bold colors. Happy summer scrapping-in a flash!
