Thinking Summer

Spring Break started a day early last week. I was supposed to teach and have one last class on Wednesday, but we had a blizzard roll through the area. We got about 8 inches on Wednesday. So I had to stay in town an extra day before I could head home. This was our second snow day of the school year for the university. Last year we didn't have any snow days, so I happily will take them.

 So I had to work on at least 1 scrappy page. And I was thinking anything warm at that point. I found one last set of beach pictures that I wanted to use up. We had such a fun day. The beach was deserted and the water was a bit choppy. It never stops my sister and I from swimming in the waves. I actually like it when the water is a little rough. I seemed to use the same Echo Park paper line throughout all of my Door County pictures for Summer of 2011. I really love their happy and bright colors.

I cut the circles on the bottom from the Echo Park paper, and mounted them with a foam pop dot to give them some dimension. I blinged them up with some Stickles, and then framed my kraft paper with some Doodlebug twine. 

I did make it home for spring break safe and sound...and just in time. The day after I left another blizzard rolled into town. This time they got nailed with 18 inches. The town just west of us got 27 inches. I was a little sad not to see all the snow, but then I remember that it took an hour to dig my car out of 8 inches on Thursday morning. I cannot imagine how buried my car would have been with this storm. Tomorrow I am taking an alcohol inks class at my local scrapbook store. Can't wait to show you my creations!


  1. Great layout! Glad you had a safe and fun trip!

  2. Fun colors in the middle of a snowstorm!! Great repititon of the circles between the bottom and the banner.

  3. Very nice! Love what you did with the circles along the bottom and also the outlining with baker's twine!

  4. I like the bright colors, banner & stickles. Glad you didnt have to dig your car out again.
