Today's Story: having a great time

It's Friday and over at Frosted Designs that means a new Fabulous Friday challenge, hexagons!  I decided to join our fabulous group of designers for the challenge.


I love the picture on my son Jeffrey on the  layout and wish it had been better one. The year was 1989 and we were on vacation in New Jersey.  I remember this day as if it were yesterday.  Jeffrey loved trucks and was so excited when he saw this ride on the boardwalk.  I am trying to make a better attempt at journaling on my pages and added this little envelope with an insert that captures my journaling.

Can't explain why, but I added some pop of hot pink to the layout.  It all started when I came across the  heart pin by Pink Paislee.  Knew it when I saw it that it had to be a part of the page.  I added a little stitiching and a little pink here and there.
I used bits and pieces from my February and April kits from Scrapbook Circle.  Lots of rub ons from Heidi Swapp in the April kit as well as some new Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers.

Hope you will have some free time to join in on the challenge. We have a great prize from our sponsor Vintage Street Market.  Stop on over to see what the DT has created to get you motivated!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful :0) Love the addition of the hot pink - good call, it looks brilliant! Glad to hear that you are starting to journal, it's a promise I have made to myself and my girls have said how pleased they are that I put a little bit of me on each page :0)

Oh I love this! I am working up to try my hand at this style of layout. I am so loving the chevron and hexagon trend right now. Thanks for the inspiration!
