In the fall

I've had such a busy and tiring day today, I decided
to keep my first June layout quick and simple without
a lot of embellies.

This is my nephew, Drake, at the park.
My sister and I went there with our kids to
take photos of them. In a downtime, my sister sat
Drake down against the bridge gate just for a rest.
But I saw this as the best photo opportunity.
Sometimes the best photos are captured when
you're not expecting, not posing. I absolutely adore
this photo and think it's one of the best of the day.

This layouts qualifies in the black background
challenge on Scrappin-n-Chattin. I used beautiful
Pink Paislee "Queen Bee" papers and I'm happy to
admit it was all done with scraps!

Layout Supplies: Pink Paislee "Queen Bee" 6x6
paper pad, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphas,
Thickers, Gelly Roll white pen, black cardstock.

Don't forget to comment on my previous post for a
chance to win a DeLovely Mini-Deck!
A winner will be announced Friday morning!

Happy June!


  1. I'm loving using 6x6 pads for layouts! It helps me not overload on patterned paper. You are so right about not posed pics! :) This one turned out great.

  2. This is an awesome photo! Great job on using up scraps, love all the distressing too!
