Hangin’ Out in the Woods

Standard

Tonight I am home alone, having some fun playing with my scrapbooking supplies. I decided to do some older lake photos, photos that may not seem like they’re of a big exciting occasion at a glance, well that’s because they’re not. But all of these photos make me smile when I look at them, because they bring back such fond memories. I love the time we spend at the lake very summer. This is Chris’ family’s cottage and we are so fortunate to have full use of it all summer long.

These are snapshots of us just hanging out at the lake with our friends, and their kids. Relaxed, comfortable, just being ourselves….carefree, no schedule, no worries, just fun, sun, laughter, and good times. That’s what I like about the lake. Life is simple. It’s full of the good stuff. Campfires, roasting wieners and marshmallows, swimming, sun bathing, book reading, laughing with friends, skipping rocks, frog catching, sand castle building, boating, water skiing, cook outs, bike rides, canoe trips, loons waking you in the morning, walks and sun rises and sun sets. It’s the best things in life….all back in the woods on a lake!

So I pulled a few pictures together from my pile tonight, and I made this traditional, nothing fancy about it, multi photo layout using the collection from 2013 that I just love called Happy Camper by Echo Park. I also used a few sheets of cardstock, a few enamel dots, and a piece of ribbon. Thanks for stopping by the blog and looking!

p.s. – The pics are a little yellow tonight because I took them in the dark in my dining room, but I felt like blogging tonight so I just used them anyways.

Gone Fishing

Standard

I was at a sale on the weekend where I picked up this older package of Echo Park paper. I was immediately drawn to it for it’s cheery nature, bright colours and bold patterns. It’s right up my alley. It just makes me smile. We do a lot of outdoorsy activities in this family and spend a great deal of time in the summer at our cottage and having campfires etc…..so I had a myriad of possibilities in my head as to what I would use it for. Yesterday afternoon I had a little bit of time so I sat down at my kitchen table and pulled together this layout of Logan fishing one afternoon. Everything I used was from the package except for some cardstock, a few enamel dots, and a couple cork and burlap pieces. Everything is inked in pearlescent chocolate as well. After I completed it I put it up on my everyday display in my dining room for all to see. It is fishing season after all! I love having something seasonal (and recent) up in my everyday display. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
