Hey everyone! I have a new project in the Two Peas in a Bucket Garden this week and thought I'd pop in to share it with you!
We were challenged thsi month with creating a projec that was summer-themed. This wasn't a problem at all given the amount of summer-related photos I have. More the issue has been, finding the time to scrap when we've been so busy!
But, I did find the time and pulled this eclectic page together using lots of different pieces to create a summer-feeling page that I'm really loving.
With the more "open" spaces on my page, I used tone on tone alpha stickers to create some journaling that also just happens to be an adaptation of the summer quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson - "Live in the Sunshine, Swim in the Sea, Drink the Wild Air", which I just love. It was the perfect space filler. I do believe I'll create a page with that quote as the main title at some point, but for now, I really like how this one turned out.
Speaking of Two Peas in a Bucket.....
I am so excited to announce that my friend, and fellow Garden Girl, Jen Gallacher has a brand new *mini* workshop that has released today at Two Peas in a Bucket! I'm so excited about this workshop and will surely be signing up for this one, as journaling is one of my hang-ups, and I would love to get Jen's insight on this subject! Plus it's only $12! You can't beat that price!
