Soakin’ Up The Sun | A Scrapbook Layout

Despite my typical aversion to two-page layouts, I have one to share today.

These photos are from 2009. Feels good to finally be getting around to them! I had about 100 shots of my nephews in the pool but only printed a handful. This is actually more photos than I print for most any event but I am very happy with this layout, so it all worked out.

I used a sketch from Scrapbook Generation, as that is pretty much the only way I can do 2 pagers anymore. This one was super easy as I used a 6×6 paper pad for the background papers, one pre-cut element and then used my punches to create all the embellishments. Super easy!

As I shared in a post earlier this week, the circle embellishments were punched out from a super busy (but really fun) pattern paper that I’ve had for years and could just never figure out how to use. I just punched out the circles and added in some additional embellishments.

I added some hand stitching to the die-cut sun piece and punched a few flags to add to the upper right corner. I purposely used a subtle pattern on the right side of the layout so that I could use that area for journaling. It ended up working perfectly to write my thoughts right there on the page. Which is better than not leaving room for it at all, which is what happens half the time!

The photos may be older, but this was a page that was worth catching up on.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
