Layout #33 - June Project 12

Hey, remember when I posted my May Project 12 and I was all upset because Jason said it looked Christmassy? Well, Davinie Fiero gave me a shout out on the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog, and she left me a message on my blog, saying that my page was definitely NOT a Christmas page! I was so stoked, I think I might've screamed when I saw my name on the SBCT blog!!! Davinie is the most famous scrapbooker that's ever left me a message, I was totally starstruck!

Anyway, onto June's Project 12 page. I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it because it has 5 equal photos, perfect for my family of 5! See?:

So, choosing photos was simple, I just picked my favorite head shots of the month. Then when I went into Creative Accents, my LSS, this Echo Park paper just jumped out at me, and I knew I had to have it! It's one of the best things about this LO, don't you think?

I also really like the Purple Pumpkin button, and how I did part of the title in twine. Here's a couple close ups.

Hope you enjoy, folks! Oh, by the way, I know my blog photos haven't been the best quality lately. My old computer had Picasa, but this one doesn't. I was going to upload Picasa today, but there's that message that comes up saying "this file can harm your computer". Has anyone had problems with that, or do you think Picasa is safe? Thanks for any advice on this!

Supplies: Bazzill, CTMH and Creative Memories cardstock, Echo Park and Basic Grey patterned paper, Hampton Arts alpha stamps, Prima flowers, Queen and Co. flower sequins and brads, CTMH ink and gems, Colorbok die cut letters, Purple Pumpkin and unknown buttons, twine


  1. Adorable layout, Roxy! I love those papers but haven't played with them yet... so much fun and perfectly summery (which also makes this a perfect entry for our summer challenge, wink wink)!

  6. I saw Davinine's shout out to you and I think I yelped out loud! LOL! It's so nice to get that sort of recognition from the big guns, isn't it?
    Love this layout, Roxy! So fun, cheerful and yes, the twine is divine!!
    As for Picasa, that's what I use to edit my photos and I love it. I've had no security problems (that I know about!) Good luck!!

  7. Congrats on the shout out! This layout is amazing! I love the twine and the frame on the one pic! I use Picasa too, and I haven't had any problems with it...I'm pretty sure it's safe :)
