Back on the Island Layout for ScrapFriends

We all know I cannot resist a ScrapFriends sketch.

I even cut these arrows out by hand as I wanted that shape!

Recently we went camping with my Father in Law and his wife for Father's Day. It was a whole lot of fun.

Luke got to go canoeing and Lexi played in the water a bit. Mostly just super relaxing!

The cool part about the campsite is being right on Lake Ontario on an island.

Check out this google image of what it looks like!

I imagined I was waving to Anne across the water saying see you this fall scrappin!

Here is a side view of my page. Really like how this turned out. Used some silver alcohol ink for the splatters and orange perfect pearls.

I have a few more photos to use from that trip, so I am planning a second page that accompanies it and also will have the journaling.

I really liked the busy with the colors & patterned paper but minus the words!

And a close up for one of my new upcycled scrapbooking items! Bread twists! See how happy it makes my twine?

Just flipped it over and added a smidge of hot glue to keep the twine in place.

It matches nicely with the little green round plastic piece I found on the beach and glued a flower & brad on. I am not sure what it was in a previous life but here on my page it makes me happy!

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fun scrappy weekend!

  6. had me rolling with that bread twist! I LOVE IT!! So weird that at 3 am this morning, while folding laundry, I thought of you when I tucked away the used dryer sheet. Thinking it might be the new "cheesecloth." Your LO is amazing Mitra. The attention to detail and the perfection of those arrows and all the terrific colors and textures along with the best photos.
