A Day at the Lake

I love the summer.  I rarely complain about the heat. I don't like the cold.  I think my grandkids like the summer, too....they are both little waterbugs!
They recently spent a few days in southern Indiana visiting extended family and had a wonderful time playing in the lake.  I love the photo of Taylor on the left...I would have preferred to have it printed in my favorite larger sizes but it was a cell phone photo and the resolution was not high enough. But it still turned out cute the way it is and I thought I would just use the photos of the two kids playing in the water and make a full 2 page spread.
I used Echo Park Hello Summer papers and embellishments as well as some Core'dinations cardstock as the base.  The "To the Lake" sign is the free shape for the week in the Silhouette Store and I saw it yesterday and thought it would be perfect!  And look how well the words and letters were cut! The little border at the bottom is also an Echo Park digital file I cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
Here is the left side:
And the right:
And how the two pages look side by side:
Don't you just love those bright happy papers?!
I used a little Glossy Accents on some of the embellishments:

 And that's it for today!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Especially Like how these layouts look side by side & the photos taken from behind them make for less intrusive to the fun they seem to be having.
