Favorite Fruits (Simple Stories I Heart Summer)


Today's layout features Simple Stories I {Heart} Summer collection. I am loving, and using, this collection as much as Summer Fresh from last year. I guess Simple Stories has a knack of producing summer collections that really work for me.

This page is about our fruit picking adventures at our favorite pick your own farm. We've picked loads and loads of fruit this summer, including strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries. Yum!

The photo of the strawberries may be the focal photo, but some 2x3 photos of the other fruits we picked are tucked into the white bag on the right side of the page.

See the bead-style strawberry embellishment about 1/3 of the way in from the top left of the page? It's made from Pixos, a children's bead craft that melds together when sprayed with water. Alexa made it for me about two years ago and I've been holding onto it for just the right occasion.

Turns out a number of "old" embellishments found a home on this page and I was happy to be able to use them. Don't you love when you can use something that's been in your stash for a long time?

See you tomorrow with another new layout, this time using Fancy Pants Wonderful Day collection...
Pin It!
