Happy Monday, everyone! Cindy and I are here to start your week off right with lots of inspiration based on this week's theme, "Summer Solstice". We decided to focus on our favorite summer activities and traditions.
First up is Cindy with her amazing layout documenting her family's favorite summer tradition...
Cindy says, "Spending time at the beach, running through the sprinkler in the backyard, and just plain grilling are just a few of my favorite summertime memories. Though, celebrating the Fourth of July with my family is probably the most favorite and setting off fireworks is probably been our family tradition since the beginning. We spend several hours outside counting down the clock and awaiting the sunset so we can begin our fun. I get a kick out of my kids excitement as they watch the fireworks explode. Their reaction is comical, nervous, and full of joy. Sadness always weighs in once all the fireworks are done, but then we get to sit on our front porch and watch the professionals shoot off fireworks into the sky in our neighborhood. A perfect ending to a wonderful summer day celebrating our freedom."
Supplies Used: Destination (Postcard, Chipboard Stickers, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers), Pinwheel (Circle & Tag Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers, Embellishment Bundle), Sweet Shoppe (Embellishment Bundle, Chit Chat Stickers), Persnickety (Finicky & Clear Stamps), Christmas Cheer (Index Journaling Card), Memorandum (Index Journaling Card)
My family and I have so many favorite summertime activities that it was hard for me to choose just one, so I decided to include multiple photos of different summer activities that we enjoy...
I knew that I wanted a bold background, so I decided to use my Silhouette and cut out a large sunburst. I backed each ray with different pieces of patterned paper from the Pinwheel and Sweet Shoppe Collections. I included photos of us enjoying random summer activities such as playing on the beach, hanging out with friends at the park, and just being outside on a warm, sunny day.
Supplies Used: Sweet Shoppe (JuJu Bee, Candy Stick, Label Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers), PInwheel (Sprinklers, Flip-Flops, Flower Box, 6x6 Tiny Tablet, Letter Stickers)
