"Just Us Girls" challenge

Good morning everyone.  Today I am playing along with the sketch challenge at JUGS.  The challenge is to use the sketch to create a scrapbook page.  Although I am a "scrapbooker" at heart, I have not had the time nor the inspiration to create a page for such a long time.  Thanks to JUGS I was able to create this page of our mini vacation last summer.

My designer paper is called "Upper Richardson Lake" by Murdock Country Creations.  The mat behind the designer paper is called "Fall Foliage" (Murdock Country Creations).  The mat behind my photos is called "Storm" (Murdock Country Creations).  The mat behind my title is called "Sky" (Murdock Country Creations).  For information on purchasing some of this amazing paper, just email Kellie at Polished To Perfection and she will help you out.

For my title, I did a play on words.  Our vacation was at "Moosehead" lake in Greenville, ME.  So when I was trying to decide how to make this title I thought - why not use a  "moosehead" so that the title wouldn't be so long.  I thought it was a good idea and I think it came out really cool.  I stamped the letters L A K E onto white clouds using 95 point Brayton Font (JustRite).  I chalked the edges of the clouds to give them more dimension.

For my journaling, I diecut a full size moose to write the town & date of our vacation.

Thanks to JUGS for getting me back into scrapbooking.  Hopefully I will continue because I have SOOOOO many pages left to do.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Have a great day!!!
