CLS Summer Blog Hop Stop #3

Thank you for following our Creative Life Scrapbooking Blog Hop on this summer holiday!

One of my favorite things about summer is enjoying the colorful flowers everywhere.  I am not a gardener, but we always pick up flowers to plant in our yard, and I love my hanging baskets and my Boston ferns!   I always take enough photos to make a few scrapbook layouts.

For 2018, I am using Creative Memories "My Memories" Fast2Fab album.  Most of the time, I can use the predesigned pages as-is, but sometimes I need to embellish and add other papers, which is what I did here.

You can click on photos to make them larger!l

I laid out my photos and started thinking about colors and paper, and chose the Full Bloom collection.

I layered the papers alongside the designs on the page.

Then I used the Starburst Punch for a delicate border. I like the linen-look of the predesigned page.

I matted some of my photos, and added Full Bloom embellishments. 

The wreath is in the Full Bloom sticker pack. I popped it up with foam squares, and added the title sticker.
