"Every year we head to the cottage to recharge. It's a wonderful time of being together, relaxing, and getting ourselves ready for the year ahead. It's a great way to start the summer."
Hooray, another original layout (I've been relying too much on templates lately). Not 100% on this page... I'm always worried about using too many elements, but without them the page looks so bare. Did this one really quick to challenge myself to a quick original page.
All papers and elements come from the Australian Father's Day Blog Train 2011. The specific parts were made by the following people:
Gradient background paper, string, 2 tone frame - Christine Smith
Scallop circle shape - Gina Miller
Water, Striped, and Deck papers, striped ribbon - 2sheilas
Brown frame, screws, buttons - Designs by Krista
Blue and Beige stitching - Frompenny
Staples, wordart - Farynar's Wings
Glitter scatter, journal tag - Hunnybee
Ribbon knot, flowers - Just me Digital
Striped frame - Stargazy Creations
Alpha - Mags graphics
