I have been very busy lately trying to get all my pictures from last summer know, before this summer rolls around.

Using some incredible paper from Pebbles Inc. (the same paper I used to make these cards) I made this double layout using pictures from our family camping trip.
When I create double layouts I almost always bring my patterned paper across both pages. For me, this works to visually connect the two sides together. In this layout I not only carried the green background paper and the striped patterned paper across the pages, but I also added the red arrow (from Scenic Route).
I kept the right side of my double layout simple - just a large family photo and a journalling block. The flower embellishment is from Scenic Route and adds the perfect little detail.
The left side of my layout is more photo heavy, but the photos are smaller. I love the little chipboard clouds that I added to the top corner. I bought these at the epic scrapbooking garage sale I keep mentioning. They were in a large bag of stuff so I am not sure who makes them (anyone know, because I would love to get more).
Relaxing at the campsite, the warm sunshine, roasting marshmallows, eating smores....these are the incredible memories of our camping trip that I am very glad I was able to record so beautifully on this layout.

Have you got all your photos from last summer scrapped? With this layout done, I only have two more to do..not too bad, and it is so much fun to look back at my pictures as I go and remember how much fun we all had.


  1. Rachel. What a great layout. The arrow is so cool. I need to try that. Thanks for linking up.

    1. Thanks Leslie. I was so happy to find the arrow in my stash and have it work so well on this page. Thanks for hosting Whimsical Wednesday.
