Goofy Golfer's

I am really loving the Charming collection from Echo Park! It works for so many different themes and the colours are definitely one of my favourite combinations.

I still had a few photos left to scrapbook from a trip to the mini golf course so I thought I would do a 1-page layout to use them up.


This layout was inspired by a sketch designed by Allison Davis for Sketch Support. It was an add-on sketch using flags. I created 3 flags made from papers and added the brads from the collection.


I used the small letters from the collection for the word 'goofy' and then I pulled in some larger letters from Bella Blvd for the word 'golfers'.


One of my favourite papers in this collection is the strips. It is an easy way to create a border. I used kraft cardstock and my favourite font (Baby Boston) for my journaling.


I added a stitched border and some smaller brads to one of the borders. I also inked all my papers with Distress ink to soften things up.


I added some twine around all the border strips and tied it into a bow near one of the sticker embellishments. Looking at this close-up photo, I realized I forgot to stamp the date on my layout.


I still have some of this paper left so I am sure you will be seeing another layout or two in the near future.
