August 31

There's a new challenge up at Scrapbook Circle today! The challenge is to use beach-themed products (like the AC Shoreline papers included in the True Stories kit) to create a non-beach layout. I love that Scrapbook Circle kits are great for holidays and seasons, but perfect for everyday-type layouts, too. It wasn't very hard to come up with this page:

The navy paper with colorful splashes was what inspired me to choose these iPhone self-portraits. I did a little tweaking at to add some blue tones to everything, then paired it up with shocking pink and a neutral gray for the rest of the page. I fussy-cut the circles from more Shoreline paper and added the MME brads to the center.

The Elle's Studio cutouts were perfect for my title, which directed my journaling.

If you'd like to play along, you can find all the details here. And if you haven't picked up a kit yet, you really want this one! It's full of fabulous stuff, whether you're scrapping summer beach memories or not :).

Thanks for stopping by today! Tessa

P.S. - Don't forget my GOLDEN BIRTHDAY BASH.
