SOC Hot Fun in the Summertime Blog Hop: Day 2

Summertime is for Grilling!

   There are two men in my family that can throw down on the Grill! Hon-neey, my Uncle Charles and my cousin Kevin are the real grill masters. This must be a man thing. No matter how hot it is outside, they do not leave the grill. I don’t know what their secret is; but the meat and vegetables are always perfectly seasoned. Yum, yum.
Who is the grill master of your family? Do you attempt to grill?

(Mr. & Mrs. Olden, my cousins. they are are a grilling team.)

This layout was a challenge because it's all about Kevin and Sugar on the grill. I didn't want the distraction of patterned pager or loads of embellishments.

I choose black black cardstock because of  stitches in the picnic patterned paper and because is was subtle. Just right.

The embellishments are lite and very appropriate for the photographs.

This page also uses black cardstock. The cardstock makes both pages "pop". These layout are also created from old product and scraps.

The same concept of less is more was also used in this layout. It's all about the photos; not how much stuff you can fit on a page.

Thanks for stopping by



  1. Great story leading to your layout. Let my DH tell it, he fell in love when he saw me take over the grill at HIS sister's bday cookout/housewarming!! LOL. My DH and I both love to the true grill master is... ME!!! ROTFL!!
