The Memory Nest - Make It Monday Challenge #71

This month at The Memory Nest we're back to just two challenges and today sees the first one for September.

Lots of opportunity to use up multiple photos or - as I did - add some journalling. And these photos did need a little explaining!

As the photos were taken outsdie in a corner of my garden I opted for this pretty floral background paper from Bo Bunny. I then added loads more elements from the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow collection.

I turned the sketch to suit my photos and stamped a row of chevrons. I die cut the S for the title and then finished it off with stickers - I like the look of combining different alphas together.

Papers: Bo Bunny, A gift of love; Coredinations, grassroots; ep, Little Girl 
Stamp: SU, Oh Hello
Ink: SU, pear pizzazz
Alphas: Lawn Fawn die, Louie's ABCs; Simple Stories, Bloom & Grow
Embellishmants: Simple Stories Bloom & Grow, chipboard & bits & pieces

Hope you like my bright happy fun page and will be inspired to have a go at using the sketch yourself. Remember you can use it for a card if scrapbooking is not your thing. There's also lots more ideas of how to use the sketch over at The Memory Nest blog - here.

Thanks for your time today, your visit was much appreciated.  And keep crafting!
