Scrapbook Challenge

You Are My Sunshine

Beachy Vibes And Tropical Tones

I'm about to go on vacation in a week and I still have lots of pictures to scrap from last year's trip to Hawaii! I'm sure I'm not the only one who faces the problem of having so many pictures piling up, but not enough time in the day to scrapbook them all! First world problems I guess.

I started with variegated scalloped paper from The Paper Studio's Bea-Hue-Tiful stack. I love this collection, but don't use it often since the colors are so intensely vibrant and don't always fit my color schemes. I didn't have a pre set color palette for this page like I so often do so my paper choices were a little more flexible. Papers from DCWV's Royal Garden stack and Craft Smith's Summer Dream stack were layered over the top in a collage.

This page was done for Scrap Our Stash's February challenge. They had the fun idea to use the word CUPID and participants must use elements on the page starting with each letter of the word. Perfect for February, right? It took some digging in my collection of scrap stuff to find all the elements, but I managed to come up with a list that is pretty unique.

C - Chevron Paper (Bramble Rose Stack by My Mind's Eye)

U - United States Stickers (Hawaii 3-D stickers by Paper Studio)

P - Pineapple Brads ( Spare Parts Brad Assortment)

I -Indigo Paper (Be-Hue-Tiful Stack by Paper Studio)

D - Damask Print (Royal Garden Stack by DCWV)

This same challenge also had an accompanying sketch. The triangle print paper I used made cutting a larger triangle super easy, plus it was full of tropical imagery and summery colors. Instead of doodling or stitching the circle on the right, I used various, colorful brads. Stickers, buttons, and mini travel tags by EKSuccess made up the rest of the embellishments.

That's it for this time. Thanks so much for stopping by!
