When Webster’s Pages introduced their new Clean & Simple paper collections, I said YES!  Yes to the same beautiful quality paper and yes to the solid patterns and backsides!  (Having a solid backside myself, I was pretty excited about this design change:)

I thought the  wonderful “Sunday Picnic” line would be perfect for my June Sketchy Challenge for Canadian Scrapbooker.  

Another fantastic sketch by the talented Jill Sarginson!

And here is my layout, featuring BabyOfTheFamily….

Sweet Summertime

The journaling strips are on top of a Magenta chipboard sun, which I first painted yellow and then sprinkled clear iridescent Craft & Glitz glitter on top while the paint was still wet. 

For my title, I put the Webster’s alphabet stickers on small die cut scalloped circles that I cut with my Cricut.  The large orange scalloped flower layer behind the photo is also cut with my Cricut.  The pink butterfly is a wonderful Martha Stewart Punch layered over a solid butterfly shape I cut in the shape of the punch.  Martha also helped with the the punched scalloped borders.

The orange paper surprised me….I rarely use orange in my designs, but I think it does make this page brighter and happier…just like summer 🙂
