Hello!  Is everyone enjoying their summer?  It's still really, really, really dry here in northern California, but oh how nice to have warm summer days!  It will all go by too fast I'm sure.

Today I wanted to share a scrapbook page I did for the DCWV  June Scrapaholic Challenge.  I rarely do any one-photo pages  as my scrapbooks are more a chronological photo story of my grandkids' lives rather than art projects, but I only have this one photo of Fletcher on his scooter, so it worked out perfectly for the sketch we were required to follow.  And, you will notice this is a rather 'plain' page........I rarely go overboard with the embellishments and such on my scrapbook pages, as I have always felt that the photo should be the highlight of the page(s,) not all the pretties attached.  Just a personal preference. 

Supplies Used:

  • DCWV Fresh Floral Stack for the page base
  • DCWV Denim Stack for the large mat
  • Woven jute from Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Antique button from my Aunt Grace's button box
  • Baker's twine
  • Silhouette cut file by Lori Whitlock 8.5 x 11 Background Shape, re-sized and cut in half
  • Font "MV Boli"
  • Leaf accent from my stash --- unknown vendor
  • Viva Pearl Pen
  • Gelly Roll pen for the small amount of journaling
Thanks for stopping by More Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes!  Hugs, Shawna


  1. What a great idea to have chronological pages of your grandkids for yourself! I'm not good anymore about scrapbooking, but someday I would love to get back to it :)

    1. Once the kiddies grow up and move out on their own each will get their "book". Thank you so much Cassie, for taking the time to comment. Remember.... hang in there!!!

  2. I totally agree and think the focus should be on the photo! Love this and the design you used too. Great layout!

    Shawna, I accidentally deleted your comment on my card this morning! Grrrrr.........I did read it though and appreciate it so very much!

    Hugs, Lynn
