SOC Hot Fun in the Summertime Blog Hop: Day 3

A Summer Day at the Lake


My son is an Eagle Scout with Troop 219 here in Nashville. Our Troop adults have so many great resources and talents. From summer homes to boats to farms; our Troop has it all.  Every summer, the guys work on their Lifesaving, swimming, and fishing merit badges.


The following layouts are of a summertime camp-out on the lake.

 Yes! I used pink and green on a guy layout. I must say it worked. I used leftover paper from a DCWV summer stack from 2009. It's nice and cool with summer fruit. 

The stripes on the mats and the title block break up the "girly" colors. The stickers are from an old Creative Memories sticker set.

Yum, watermelon.  Notice the play on words "A slice of Summer". 

Minimal embellishments do not interfere with the story the photos tell.

I like the different placements of the photos as well. 






Thanks for Visiting

Cyndi

  3. Very nice layouts! So glad to hear that pink and green do work with male layouts. I have a hard time not making male projects girly. Glad it can be girly incognito. :-)

    1. Sheryl, I guess It depends on the patterns in the paper? I guess. Thanks for your comments.
