summer challenge -- week 5

Summer holidays are about fun and friends and movies and scrapbooking, of course. Last week during a four-day staycation, I completed 14 pages. I should say that I completed 14 pages that I really, really like.

I was going to write something about each layout, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I hope you enjoy them!!

  1. that watermelon one and the zoo one that you kept thinking were too simple are perfect the way they are,they turned out beautifully!!i am still in shock about the "sweet"one and how many patterns that YOU used!For someone who says they are so matchy matchy,you did an awesome job mixing them.once again,the pics don't show the vibrancy of the colours.
