{Lakeside}

I have 2 fun layouts to share with you today, both using the new Lakeside collection from Pebbles. First up, this layout for the Yellowstone vacation album...
I did a little fussy cutting on the trail map paper and crumpled it up a bit to make it look even more like a map ;)
I love the tent and boating stickers that look like the location symbols on a map! I added a layer of foam tape to give them and the cute chipboard pieces a bit of dimension.
 
Next up, one of Gracie's many drawings that I of course have to save...
I used a mix of some older Crate Paper and My Minds Eye papers, and more of the cute Lakeside chipboard.
I have so many little pictures and drawings my girl has made :)  She loves looking through her scrapbooks, and especially likes seeing her artwork mixed in between the pages.

Well, July has arrived and so has the warm hot weather. I'd love to crank up the a/c and stay inside and scrapbook, but there are places to see and things to do. 

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Lovely layouts. It's smart of you to scrap your child's art-I wish I'd done that. I saved a lot of it but didn't date it.

Such a great idea to scrap your daughters drawings. I love the way you did the fussy cutting and the colours of the first layout, it is awesome.
