Summer Days Driftin' Away...

Greetings traveller. Today we are once again adding to the family archival tome. As summer has finally descended upon the realm, we thought it fitting this time to create a summer themed entry into the ancient book. After locating some aging photos, the Lady Commander of Copics and I set to work.

I know, I know...two scrapbook pages in one month. It’s unprecedented. For this one we used some old photos of my parents from the 70s enjoying a summer day at the park (before they had us rugrats to contend with). I don’t make the typical scrapbook layouts...it’s more haphazard and all over the place than most you see. Anyways... We used that same weird fabricy tissue paper stuff that we used on the previous page, this time in green. The cute porcupine cooking a marshmallow was cut using the Campin’ Critters cartridge and placed next to the picture of my dad roasting a hotdog. The bikini was cut using the Nifty Fifties cartridge and the “teeny bikini” words were cut with the Life’s a Beach cartridge. (It might be hard to tell from the picture, but my mom is wearing a bikini top). Both were embossed using my Cuttlebug of +60 impressions. All the other stuff was random stuff my sister and I had in our crafting chambers.


I just have to comment on this picture because I find it hilarious. I was born in the 80s and didn’t get to see 70s fashion, so I laughed when we came across this picture of my dad with those lovely heeled shoes, long flowing hair...and what is up with that hat?! {lol} I love it. :)

Seriously...was this my mom’s hat that he was wearing?? {lol}


This layout will be roasting in the following challenges:
DRS Designs Challenge #76: The Letter “B” (bikini, bbq and binoculars)


This fun summer page was added to the ever growing tome and returned to the dusty caverns until next time we indexed the records. From this quest, I managed to earn some much needed LO exp and go up a level! Fare thee well until your next visit.
