thursday again

Here it is Thursday again, time for another posting.  I have had these photos out, cropped and ready for scrapping for months now.  I even picked out the papers I wanted to use, I just never got around to getting them into my scrapbook.  I finally decided to play around with them this week.

These are Lily Bee Double Dutch papers.  They have such a summery, playful feel to them, perfect to scrap an annual, early summer fair held to benefit our local hospital.  While I didn't mix any other papers with them, Lily Bee's prints always seem perfect to mix into other lines.  Their prints are so versatile and I find I cannot resist buying them.  

I used some pennants and banners to pick up on the banners seen in the photos.  I took my granddaughter Eden as a treat since she was sleeping over and who better to join her than another 6 year old and my nephew Evan was the perfect companion.  I decided it would be one of those nights where they could try anything they wanted and the anit-gravity bounce, a bit of a splurge, was a hit.  They were both far more fearless than I thought they'd be and went on every thrill ride they were tall enough to ride alone.  No way I was getting on those.  :)

They played the carnival games and won prizes, ate pizza and ice cream and we finished off our day with a ferris wheel ride just in time to see the fire works from a great vantage point.  

The Bella Blvd washi tapes are perfectly matched with the colors here and I used Recollections Polaroid frame around a couple of the photos.  I played with embellishments, fashioning first some pinwheels, then layered flowers and finally decided on simple hearts.  Of course I've inked my papers with Peeled Paint Distress inks.  I love inks.  

Be happy, get scrappy!
