For Fun - Goodbye Summer!

The challenge at For Fun this week is themed:  Goodbye Summer Scrapbook Layout.  So we were to create a scrapbook page! 

My creation for you uses my first attempt at using digital elements in my scrapbook.  All the text is digital on acetate.  Still something to get used to.... I must be a traditionalist scrapper!

Ingredients used: 12x12 patterned paper (unknown, but will add details if I find them!); Cardstock - Core-dinations, Crushed Velvet Ribbon, Mini Brads.

I tore the core-dinations cardstock to create a matt for the photo, and placed it on the paper, adding some pencil marks at various points.  With a blade I cut the paper following it's design, so that the matted photo could be slipped behind some paper design elements (this is a technique I use often!).

I also used the blade to cut/lift some of the photo, so that it would appear that mu husband's arm and my daughter's hat were over the ribbon.

The photo was taken at a Camp Venue beside Lake Lascelles, in the north west of the state..... at our family Christmas Gathering. It was a great campsite, and the lake was completely EMPTY!  We've been in a drought for 10 years  or so, and the rains are only just starting to make a difference.  So the photo is fitting for this challenge, as our Christmas is in our Summer!  The title is from a 70's Pop song "Summer Love" ... yeah yeah, I love 70s music......

Thanks for peeping, and I invite you to join in our challenge at For Fun ... even if you don't join in the challenge, please visit the challenge site to see the awesome summer creations!

What a stunning scrap page, Pauline. The colours of the papers and the photos just match perfectly. Great job!
