In my kitchen, I have a shelf. On this shelf, I like to display a project in a frame. For the last couple of years, it's been a Bible verse printed on some MME patterned paper.
However, I'm longing for summer. On Tuesday, I decided to change up some of the decor in our house. I took away most of the candles and other knick knacks and put out some summer themed items. And, I was inspired to change what was in the frame.
I printed up some favourite photos from a trip to the beach last summer (you might have noticed them on this layout here). But I love them so much, I decided that I'd love to have them on display for the season.
I decided to use some of Crate's newest line: The Pier and create something for the May Creative Weekly Challenge on the Crate Paper Blog: Summer Splash.
Here's what I came up with, using Crate Paper patterned paper and slide frames.
I layered the frames over all three of my photos. That blue matches the blue I have in my kitchen-- I love it!
For my journaling, I took some lyrics from my new favourite song: Every Good Thing by The Afters. I created my title and cut it out with my Silhouette Portrait, using that yummy Crate Paper woodgrain patterned paper. I'm so glad I bought two sheets of that right away!
I should mention that the "this" banner is from Elle's Studio, which I cut down to fit on my layout.
And here's how it looks on my shelf....
I wasn't even thinking about the wall colour when I chose the background paper, but look how well it coordinates! Love that!
Thanks for looking!
