Auntie June Layout

Hello and Welcome!

This summer Aunt June and Uncle Tom came for a visit. I hadn't seen them and years and it was wonderful. I captured this candid photo of Auntie June with her dog, Trixie, relaxing in the gardens at the Bakken Museum.

This layout almost made itself between the fun sketch on the Altenew blog and their amazing Scrapbooking kit. Everything on this page is from Altenew's Reflections Scrapbook Collection, from the beautiful watercolor pattern papers and chipboard stickers to the wooden flair buttons, acetate and cute wooden birds & butterfly. The little frame for the date (yes, this kit even comes with date stamp!) was left over from a word sticker and fussy cut. Don't these Altenew products just make this photo pop?!

I was inspired by Altenew's sketch design, but used the pretty watercolor flowers instead of circles. I also used the colors from the challenge.

This layout is entered in:
           March 2017 Altenew Layout Sketch Challenge. By @ahorton, Halftone Circles Stamp Set - @Altenew
  • The "Hip Hop" Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp - since my hip Auntie June hopped over to the Bakken Museum to walk her dog! :-) 
  • The "Hello My Name Is..." challenge at Colorful Creations - I was named after my Aunt June and now, with nieces & nephews, I too go by Aunt June. I use the "A" in Aunt and used all Altenew products

Thanks for stopping by,
