Hello and welcome back to summer week! Today, I'm sharing a layout featuring pictures of my daughter at the county fair. We enjoy going to the fair each summer in the month of May. I love that we can experience the rides, the sights, the smells and the food before it gets too hot.
To begin, I chose my background paper (white with dots) and two coordinating papers from the Bloom Collection by Maggie Holmes. I trimmed both the pink paper and the green floral paper at an angle and adhered it to my background paper in order to create a sense of flow and movement to my page.
Next, I chose two photos for my page that would fit inside the wood hoops from the Craft Market collection. The larger photo is a picture of my daughter walking around the fair with her phone in hand. I love the way the sun is shining down on her in this picture. The second photo is of a snow cone purchased at the fair. You can't take a trip to the fair without trying out fair food—it's a must!
Once I got my photo frames done, I figured out how I wanted them placed on my page. I then chose embellishments and styled them from there.
I used a combination of cardstock and clear accent stickers to create the title “Sunshine & Love” and placed it below my photos.
I used stamps to spell the words “county fair” on a wood veneer banner piece. I also used a date stamp to record the date on my page and added a few more stickers and some loose machine stitching to finish off the page.
I hope you have fun documenting your outings this summer and take lots of photos!
