My First Scraptastic Kit!

Happy Summer!

I just finished my first layout made from my very first Scraptastic Kit.  I had been holding off subscribing to kit clubs the past few months as I have piles of old kits to use up and have not been scrapbooking as much as I would like to.

Once I saw the July kit, I gave in!   The kit is the July 2014 Summer Nights kit.  It is full of amazing bold rainbow colours and woodgrain patterns.  My layout is based on the July Scraptastic Club sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch:

The photo was taken at my friend's birthday pool party near the end of June.  The kids played in the pool for hours and had a blast.  The pool was at a house that belongs to a member of my friend's family.  There was an amazing view of a beach and the Pacific Ocean from the pool deck, yummy summer food and great company - just close friends and family.   It was the first real summer activity we did right after school was out.

I was also inspired by a recent Paperclipping podcast "A Team Effort" which is a discussion about including the family in our scrapbooking.  So I had my daughter write her memory of that day on the journal card and it's my favourite part of the layout. Here's my layout:

I spritzed the sunshine wood veneer with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine (Mustard).

The "Just Chill" sentiment is from the July Summer Nights stamp set.

We've been having an amazing summer so far and have been enjoying wonderfully sunny weather.  I know I'll be using up the rest of my kit really soon!

Thanks for dropping by.
