Seasonal Expressions 2



Welcome to the Seasonal Expressions 2 spotlight blog hop!


You've arrived here from Brenda's blog we have 18 consultants participating in this spotlight hop.  If you lose your place while moving through the blog hop a complete list of participants is found here.

This month is National Scrapbooking Month and I'm celebrating by featuring scrapbook layouts on the blog this month.  I prefer creating layouts over cards it's just me and doesn't mean that I don't admire those beautiful cards I see my fellow consultants and Close to My Heart family create.

I'm in love with the Jack paper pack and coordinating stamp sets, and stamp & die sets.  The layout I created is influenced, heavily, by the Camping Life layout on pg. 42 in SE2. :)   My son and his roommate like to hike and camp in the mountains.  I made this for him.


I adore the lumberjack he's too cute!
I tired to fix the lighting!
I lightly line my journal blocks.  That way my crazy downhill handwriting looks a bit better.  ; )



I'm NOT a camping person!  I think the Holiday Inn is camping...so anyone that does camp is brave in my book.


My photos are dark my apologies.  I'll try again and see if I can get them lighter.  I hope you can see the details.  

 I added a few more embellishments to the layout using the Flower Market Cartridge.
