I enjoy spending time with my niece Jackie. She is sweet, at least she is when she is hanging out with me. I am sure she lets her 13yo-ness out at home with her parents. She has discovered scrapbooking and is eager to try out new techniques and ideas with the photos she has collected of her family and friends. She asked to spend a few days between camps and the beginning of school with me scrapping and I immediately agreed. We are working with Copic markers here, another Jacque teaching us how to use their color chart and blend when coloring with the markers. I've used some Basic Grey Lemonade paper, flowers I cut with a Sizzex die and bling from I don't remember where. I call her Jax and I am glad to have a family member keeping the scrapping going as none of my own three daughters seem interested.

They layouts feature photos I took at our Labor Day Picnic at my sister's. Sue and Dave live near Lake Nockamixon and we enjoy going to their home for family celebrations...especially in the summer when we can go out on their pontoon boat. We all enjoyed the cruise Dave took us on. As usual during our family celebrations everyone brought something to the table and we feasted and played games. It was a lovely day and a delightful way to say goodbye to summer and get ready for school and the fall.
I used October Afternoon patterned papers and Bazzill solids. The alphas are also October Afternoon. I used my Nestabilities label dies and punched flowers from matching cardstock. If you work them with a stylus on a cork or foam pad you can make them resembles Prima flowers.
