Since we had a special sneek peek this past Wednesday to our new collections for CHA Summer, we had to wait until today to share our layouts for the week.
"Awesome", by Leanne Allinson.
My youngest son has the cutest sayings and as a scrapbooking mummy, I want to capture them all! His most recent and heartwarming saying at the moment is a little sing-song rendition of "awe-some". I love it because it is usually connected to a memory he is trying to tell me. I've used hidden journaling to document the story and staggered the alphas in size and placement to create some interest with the title.

"YUM", by Yohko Takiguchi.
These photos were taken at a bird/flower park. I wanted to use leaves, trees and owl stickers for this layout. So I chose Finally Fall collection. I cut out two branches from vellum paper.

“Friends”, by Kim Jeffress.
A few months ago during playgroup I happened to snap these fun photos of my son and his two little friends. They were playing dress ups and had just made these fun crowns for craft. I couldn't resist the bright colors in the photos and so I combined a number of papers from newer and older collections to complete my layout. I layered two pieces of floral papers so I added in some vellum to add at translucent layer between. To complete my layout I added some designer tape at the top and bottom to ground the background paper.

“America”, by Jenny Evans.
For this layout I was inspired by the "kaboom" of a firework. I chose to stick with the classic red, white and blue colors, cutting and layering different size pieces behind the photo. I didn't do a lot of embellishing, as I wanting the background to stand out. The photo is from this years' 4th of July, and the All American collection was perfect for it!
