craft the joy of your HOMETOWN SUMMER

 

Summer is in full swing at my place and while every momma knows the livin’ ain’t easy this season- it sure is good!

We don’t have any big vacation plans this summer other than a few day trips.  Truth told- I’m more of an Autumn traveler.  the thought of waiting on lines and in crowds at the usual kiddie parks in the summer heat is a nightmare to me.

I truly believe one of the very places to go this season- and the one place that will make the most difference in the memories my boys have of their childhood summers is right here at home! Travel is awesome- but- most of the stories our summers are made of are in our own backyard- and I wanted to celebrate that with this design!

I worked to design HOMETOWN SUMMER to capture the little joys that make up simple summer days. It has a fun retro vibe and bright happy colors and lots of details to help you tell the stories of your own summer days.  You can get a peek of the design in the video below and see even more layouts by visiting the shop here.  Here’s wishing you a terrific summer- no matter how far (or near!) it take you!

Jump start your layouts | looking backwards

It’s been said that photographs are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I love that thought. Because, if we can return to a time- then it’s never really lost is it? Not to us, or to anyone who can see and read and feel what that image means to us. We can tell […]

Simplifying December with Traveler’s Notebooks

Especially this time of year, when there are so many stories to be captured- I wanted to make it a point to scrap more often- to tell more stories- but in a simpler way. I love Project Life- and I am a big fan of mini books. It’s only natural then that my attention has […]

Crafting a Joyful Thanksgiving

I recently read a terrific article about the joy of anticipation.  It brought to mind a wisdom I try to live by- the joy of the ride is just as important as the thrill of the destination. It struck me that this month, November, is a journey and a destination all wrapped in one beautiful, […]

Stroll down CHESTNUT LANE

Halloween is behind us- and there is no doubt the the Holiday season is in the air.  But if you have been following me for awhile- you know I am one who likes to slow it down a little and enjoy the autumn goodness that November has to offer.  The cozy at home vibes inside […]

Layout Lookback | October

It is almost time to turn the page on October and welcome a new month! Each month it seems like there is a trend of what joy we put in focus.  October was a month of family moments, days on the game field,  celebrations- and of course, Halloween! Here are a few layouts I wanted […]
