X-treme Fun!

Happy Monday everyone! I am happy to say that I am back to do another post (less than a week since my last one)! Hopefully I can keep this up and get back into a routine of posting and scrapbooking.

Today I am sharing a layout that I did using a sketch by Laura Whitaker. You can find the sketch I used here!  These photos were taken a couple of summers ago at a cottage we rented.  The boys had brought a slingshot with them and used a couple of pop cans as targets.  This provided hours of fun.


I used my Silhouette to create the 'x' and the word 'fun'.  I added some wooden letters from Pink Paislee for the rest of my title.  I also created the large circle on my Silhouette and added some hand stitching with brown floss.


I used the Simple Stories Awesome collection and there were lots of little elements on the papers that I cut out and added pop dots and stitching to accent.  I also added a row of brads too.


The stickers that went with this collection were perfect so I couldn't resist adding some of them.


I thank Laura for an awesome sketch to work with and I am happy to add another layout to the cottage album.



  1. So beautiful...I will need to get tips from you to use my new Silhouette to its full capacity ;-)

  2. Beautiful! Love the "cottage colour looking" on your layout!

  3. This is a great design. I love the flow and the attention to detail everywhere especially on the title.
