Summer Holiday

This layout is in answer to a challenge called 'The Chop Your Paper Challenge' on Shimelle's blog in the online scrapbooking weekend. The challenge is to "Create a project that is embellished with paper rather than embellishments. Take a piece of paper (or two) and chop it up until you have enough to dress up your page!"


I used papers from Fancy Pants, Beach Babe collection (most of which are scraps from another layout, to be revealed on Scrapology at a later date). These were flying fish, cards, tropical and The circular piece is one I have had for years, from My Little Shoe Box. The letters were cut on the Cricut using George and Basic Shapes cartridge. I used several punches from Stampin' Up and Martha Stewart. I also used some perfect pearls to decorate the paper elements.

This layout also responds to the 'Wake Up Call' Challenge from the same weekend project. We needed to state one thing we want to scrapbook today - I chose old seaside photos. These pictures are converted from colour slides my Dad took of me on the beach while on holiday in about 1961.
