Blue Skies Layout

Good morning, scrappers!

Today I have this week's challenge from Scrap it With a Song. The song this week is Mr. Blue Sky by ELO.


Last November, my husband and I moved to a new city not far from our old place. It was a big move for both of us since we had both lived in the same city for most of our lives. Big plus for me is that I now have TWO scrapbook stores that are 5 minutes away! One day we took a break from unpacking to explore our new town. The sky was AMAZINGLY blue that day and so this picture was perfect for this challenge.

Paper: Echo Park "Sweet Day"

I must admit I've been hoarding this paper collection for a while now. I love everything about it, from the hexagons to the vintage bicycle. The colors are just beautiful. But I went to a crop this last weekend and made myself use it to create this layout and another double page spread that I will share next week. That bicycle sticker is just about my favorite thing EVER! It hurt to peel it off the sticker sheet!

Check out Scrap it With a Song to enter this challenge or any of the other songs for this month!

Thanks for reading!

Adorable layout, and fabulous photo. How exciting to find 2 scrappy stores in your new area, especially with so many closing down around the US. Thanks so much for sharing your work with us at Use It Tuesday.
