I just love Basic Grey (and have a stash accumulating) so I used their “Wassail – Cranberry Sauce” as my background and “Polka – Party Collection” by Necessities as my photo mat. I love to sew on my scrapbook pages. I feel it adds some interest and makes the page unique and it’s a great alternative to adhesive. I dry-brushed the coordinating green on the background paper and used the same paint on my chipboard circles and letters. The letters looked a little stark so I distressed them with my sanding tool. The little charm hanging from the rope around the rolled photo mat says “family”.
I hope you took the time this summer to spend a day at the park with someone you love!
