Pebbles, Inc Double Week

Are you noticing lots of summer themed pages on this blog? I guess because it's the dead of winter here in the US, I'm focused on one thing - getting to the Summer! Or at the very least, Spring!

This week was double page layout week over at Pebbles, Inc. I don't make them very often but when I do I feel so accomplished - like I've documented an entire story. For this page I used all of my favorite photos from an evening we spent at the beach last June. They have these free concerts on Wednesday nights and it's so nice just to sit there and have dinner and listen to some music...anyway, here's my page:
Here are a few close ups...I mixed a few different lines to make the border. I wanted to use wavy lines to connect the pages somehow, but didn't want to be too literal. I limited the waves and let them span the break in the pages. I trimmed that scallop-y Fresh Goods paper because I thought it looked nautical & wavy, too. For the most part, the colors in the border are pulled from the sand chair in one of the photos. Here's a title detail:
This little envelope, which you can only see the scalloped top of, holds all the extra little wallet sized photos that aren't on the page. The little clothespin helps to grab them...
I used a lot of Fresh Goods on this page, but also some Floral Lane and Happy Go Lucky. All of those Pebbles lines are so versatile. I can't wait to see what they have in store at CHA this month! For a full list of my supplies, and to see some more amazing double page layouts, stop by the blog today and keep an eye out for those Winter release sneaks!

I guess I can confess here that my first day of Ella's Take Twelve did not go as planned. I will re-organize and get my photos taken today & vow next month to take them all on the 12th!

Lovely! I really loved that line from Pebbles- the textures pink woodgrain and the blue scallops were my favorites. LOVE how you structured the photos on your layout.
