Several of our design team members are playing along and offering up some blog candy, so be sure to stop by each of their blogs. You should have arrived here by way of Michele's blog. If you get lost along the way, or just want to start from the beginning, you can find the complete list on the Lasting Memories blog.
Our theme for July is "Childhood Games". Each week you will make your layout based on the photo/game provided. Our first challenge is "Marbles". Here is your inspiration photo:
For my layout I was inspired by the circles and the bright colors. I still need to add my journaling in above the photos on the right hand side of the layout. I just need to figure out how I can fit all that I want to say in that little space!
Here is a closer look at each page:
This layout is about a fund raiser that our little elementary school has that is near and dear to my heart. Every year, for the past six years, they hold a fun walk/run called "Conway Bears Step Up For Autism". The students get donations or pledges, then they get to spend one afternoon out on the track, running or walking a mile, and then cooling off with a treat.
This year it was held on May 11th. Since Abby is the Special Education teacher for K-4th graders, she got to walk with us, and even Matthew came along for it since he was already out of school. Even though it was pretty hot that day, and all Ada wanted to do was play at the "park" (playground) - we still had a lot of fun!
I based my layout on a sketch from the brand new sketch book by Scrapbook Generation called, The Whole Picture. I just picked this book up on Thursday, and I seriously love it! I am pretty sure that I will be using every single sketch in that book!
I do have some blog candy to give away here on my blog! All you have to do for a chance to win these goodies from Elle's Studio, is leave a comment on this post by next Saturday, July 9th. Of course I would love it if you would become a follower, but it's not necessary to win my blog candy, just leave me a comment. I will draw a winner next Sunday, July 10th.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Next up on the hop is Haven.
Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way!
