Lemonade Stand Layout & Giveaway Winners

First off I want to share the winners from my recent giveaways!
The winner from the Scrapping Our Stash hop is: Nichole Bentley
The winner from the Paper House Productions Endless Summer hop is: Beverly Jordan
Please email me at practicalscrappers@gmail.com and I will get those out to you!

One of my favorite things about the Summer Lovin' line from Samantha Walker and Carta Bella is that it included some moments that get left out of a lot of summer lines, but lots of us experience.  I knew I wanted to make use of the lemonade stand stuff to document my kiddos and their stands from the last two years!  I figure now that summer is wrapping up I better get some of these memories committed to layouts!  You are also going to notice a new trend with me - I have been doing a lot more 8 1/2 X 11 layouts!  Not sure why but that canvas seems to be where my brain is going a lot!

I went for an 8 1/2 X 11 base this time and layered papers onto a green cardstock background.  I left a  little of that to peek out underneath the colorful vertical stripes. I lined up my pictures (one from each year) vertically on some more green cardstock.

I fussy cut out a giant chevron from patterned paper and added that as a focal point in the base.  I really like how it plays off of the colorful vertical stripes!  

Coordinating stickers and wood pieces make up a few clusters around the layout but otherwise I kept it clean and simple.  I can't believe these summer days are already wrapped up and we're on to the next season of Back to School and Fall!

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Carta Bella
Stickers: Samantha Walker
Twine: The Twinery
Wood: Studio Calico
