Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

It’s all about that view!

Well, hello! It’s wonderful that I’ve gotten so many pages created this month and all because of a scrappy getaway at the beginning of the month. Such a blessing!

My layout today began on my scrappy weekend, but I finished it later – had to pack up, clean up and head home finally! It was nice to have an idea what I was going to do, though, so it came together quickly in the end.

I’m entering this into  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes. 

I found a fabulous sketch on Susan Stringfellow’s blog: Sketch Savvy

This was perfect for my two landscape photos. Here’s what I created:

No watercolor or stamping on this page, but I did use quite a few fun embellies, including a favorite new one – the Faber Castell Clear Texture Gems – it’s how I created those awesome clear drops (yes, those are dry and perfectly round and wonderful!) Can you tell I love the look? And they were so easy to do!

I used a quote from Ali Edwards Give Sunday  (thank you so much, Ali, as this was just what my page needed), printed it on vellum after tracing the png file in Silhouette Studio and making the color a lovely teal. I used a scalloped rectangle digital die cut file for the outside (and yes, I did this as a print and cut.) The patterned papers are from Bella Blvd as is the washi tape, some of the enamel shapes and some of the cardstock stickers. I just love that Bella Blvd uses the same colors in their different collections so it’s easy to mix and match to create the look I want on my pages!

Thanks so much for stopping by and following along with all of my pages! I won’t have another page to share for quite some time, probably, but hopefully I’ll have some cards and gift card holders to share with you as Christmas draws nearer, that is, if I’m not too busy creating like a crafty elf! 😉

Wishing you a wonderful, magical and blessed month of December!
