I decided to scrap some photos from last summer when we were camping in the Okanagan in British Colmbia (because let's face it I am so sick of winter I need some brightness in my life right now). My parents took or son so my husband and I could have a date afternoon and explore Salmon Arm just the two of us. Unfortunately, they did not have a scrapbook/craft store but they did have the next best thing - - a CANDY store!!!! But not only was it a candy store, they also had american candy/treats. I was so excited!!! Trust me if I wasn't on a diet I would have bought so much more (i.e. the 5lbs gummy bear).
Here is my layout:
Based on this week's ScrapMuch? sketch by Laura Whitaker:
I misted the background with same colours of the candy: tattered angels (creme de chocolate, yellow daisy, patina) and lindy's stamp gang starburst (pretty in pink pink, salt water taffy).
The thing I love most about this layout, is that it was created solely out of scraps that were in my stash!!!
Here are some close-ups:
top right hand corner, i added a couple of banners, then added some washi tape (webster's pages: modern romance) and some ribbon (american crafts: summer)
