May Team Brae-er Blog Hop - Taste of Summer

Welcome to our monthly team Brae-er Blog Hop featuring a Taste of Summer from Close to my Heart. If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog for a full list of participants. If you came from Michelle's blog then you are in the right place!

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

This month we are featuring the special Taste of Summer paper pack available this month only for National Scrapbooking month.  I don't often create single page layouts but I only had two photos that turned out on this trip so I thought I'd just do a single page.  I also thought I'd be adventurous and work without a pattern.  I looked at some images on my Pinterest board and then just played around with the paper until I had an idea that I liked.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I added in a couple of cute little pieces of Boardwalk washi tape and some fussy cut strawberries from a retired stamp set.  I coloured the strawberries with my ShinHan touch twin markers.

The next stop on the Hop is Sheri. Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects from those that you have seen along the way.  Don't forget to hop along again next month when we will be previewing the National Scrapbooking month kit - Taste of Summer.
