My Favorite Summer Scrapbook Layout!

My Little Honey, granddaughter extraordinaire, is a raving nut when it comes to the beach.  LOL  She loves the water and the sand.

Tabitha, Tabitha Safdi Photography, did a beautiful photo shoot of LH.  Tab's work is so great and it is awesome when coupled with this not camera shy little girl.  Here is just one layout I could not help to create. 

Although it is still a multi-photo layout, the amount of photos is not the focus.  I had to add a little but of an art element with the Clearsnap Smooch Spritz and a bit of Ranger Stickles. 

Ingredients:  SEI paper collection; Sizzix sea horse die; Robin's Nest Dew Drops; Clearsnap Smooch Spritz River Mossy; Ranger's Stickles; Dymo Label Maker; Around the Block Tagger;

I loved the Smooch Spritz.  The SEI paper has a gloss finish so it wasn't giving me quite the look I wanted to I used a paper towel to dab some of the Smoosh Spritz.  I loved it as it brought out the somewhat hidden flowers.

LH picked out the die on one of my shopping trips because she LOVES seahorses.  According to her they say "neigh, neigh."  I know she will love this in her summer book.

I just noticed as I was typing this that my "tag" on the first photo swung upward for the photo.  In the book it will hang downward. 

I can't believe my "full time" job is over and LH starts school next week.   She and I start a new adventure next week.

The weekend is crazy as I move my son back to college!  Starting Monday though I will have more time for the craft!  "TaDa" as LH would say.

Have a Crafty Weekend!
