A Quick Layout

I really want to get back to scrapbooking, so I joined Club Scrap's Summer Camp in the hopes of getting organized and caught-up.  It's a month-long "competition" with incentives for creating layouts.  I try hard not to get too caught up in the competition and focus on enjoying myself.  I spent some time this afternoon finding and organizing my completed layouts and my photos "to be scrapped."  I'm pretty caught-up through 2009 and have completed a few layouts for 2010, so it shouldn't be too hard to get back up to speed.  After doing all the prep work, I wanted to actually complete a layout, so I used Shimelle's idea of arranging still life photos around portraits to complete this two page layout about the nature hike my DH and I took earlier this spring.  I really like how it turned out.

I really like that idea of Shimelle's, combining the still life and portrait shots - it works absolutely perfectly here!

These portraits and still life work really well on a page celebrating the outdoors.I like the way you and DH are still the main focus of the pages.
The background card is perfect too...did you stamp that?

I'm loving that idea too..in fact it's the only layout I've managed to complete so far. This is a beautiful page. Lots to look at yet it still feels calm and fresh

Great combo Rinda! It worked so well.

I like it too! I have done some all nature layouts that I like, but the portraits of you and your husband really make this a stand-out page. Our book group read Bridge of Sighs. It is a slow start and I didn't like it as much as Empire Falls, but we ended up enjoying the book.

My reason for joining PSL as well! I like the flower photos of different sizes - sets off the LO and other photos nicely.
