Under the Trees (updated)

Last Sunday, my husband and I went to one of our local parks. It was a nice, sunny and warm afternoon but the breeze was just heavenly. We found a shady spot full of all types of trees and laid out and just relaxed.

So here is a layout I did from that lazy Sunday. I scrap lifted this idea from Latrice Murphy's layout in the August 2014 issue of Paper Craft & Scrapbooking magazine on page 59. I saw the online copy and when I saw her layout, it went in my memory to try at some point. A great way to use up all those scraps I had sitting around, too.

I love the wood grain paper paired with all the bright patterned paper.

We laughed as I took the "selfie" of us laying around.

I splattered white gesso paint around.

This little leather sticker was a fun touch.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

After looking at this layout this morning I decided to add some gold glitter paper banners to really finish it off. Now I feel satisfied! :)

Thanks for looking, AGAIN! LOL!
