If you have been reading my blog, I like to scrapbook quick, easy and inexpensive pages that don't have a lot of "clutter" on them. I like clean layouts that let the photographs speak for themselves. I am also a traditional scrapbooker and scrapbook with paper, I don't care for digital crafting at all.
A very large box has been sitting in my craft room loaded with a bunch of scraps and leftover embellishments from other scrapbook layouts. I decided that it is time to start using up those items and this fun amusement park (arcade ride) layout is what I came up with.
I used a textured piece of yellow cardstock for my background. I then made two border strips (one in medium pink and one in a light blue print and ran those down my left side of the page. I trimmed the strips up with some tiny diameter rick-rack that I had using a liquid glue pen.
Finishing up I used some glitter self-adhesive phrase stickers with the "Summer Vacation" placed at the top of the page and the "Away We Go" placed at the bottom of the page. My camera didn't pick up that they were sparkly glitter stickers at all. I did some journaling in my own handwriting on the medium pink colored border strip. Often times we get too reliant on computers and families in the future really want to see our handwriting and penmanship!
Overall, I think it came out pretty good! I rarely work in this color scheme and they were the perfect three colors for a fun summer scrapbook layout.
