Happy Summer, y’all! We’re one week into the “official” summer season and I am loving it. Everyone is enjoying the sunny (and longer!) days. And most everyone is headed out on vacation or has something planned. Smiles and good moods everywhere you look.
I’ve been working on some photos from this year of events and fun with family and friends – mostly birthdays and dinners. The layout I’m featuring today is from a fun Saturday when two of my best girlfriends came to Atlanta and we all went out to lunch and then to see the matinee performance of The Lion King. We’d all seen it before and loved it, but my husband hadn’t. He now loves it, too!
To highlight the fun of the day, I settled on a new kit I had with a cameras and photos theme. The papers are very busy, but I decided to go for it. Normally, I use photo matting to help the photos stand out, but I wanted to see if I could do something different (for me!).
I did two things. First, I only used two of the sheets of patterned paper and a single piece of cardstock. And breaking up the title seemed to be the real key, for a variety of reasons: 1) it helps define the photos visually – to help see where the photos start and end, 2) it moves your eye down the page to guide you around the photos, and 3) it really reinforces the theme of the photos by describing the photos themselves.

I hope you have a wonderful summer and “get busy” scrapping all the fun of this wonderful time of the year!
