Happy Monday. The girls have all started their summer camps this week and seem excited to have something else to do but "sit around". 

I was able to squeeze in some crafting recently for the family and decided to do a layout for my daughter's recent communion. So excited to get a layout done within the same year the event actually happened...WHOA.

For this layout, I was inspired by a sketch I saw. I used my die-cuts to create the flourishes (Cindy Loo Cart) by Cricut and also used a paper set I got at the craft store. Also used my border punches for the brown polka dot stripe on the bottom. 

Now I had to add some touches of blue because my daughter's favorite color was blue and she reminded me that I have to reflect her tastes too so I had the cross in my stash and used a label I made for the favor in the layout as well.

I will be entering this one into the following challenges:

  3. Your layout and photos are beautiful! I love that she had input on the embellishing too! Your 'in the same year' comment made me laugh! I think all scrapbookers can relate to that! Thanks so much for sharing your special page with us at Anything But a Card!
