Summery Blog Hop

Good morning everyone!

Today I am participating in another hop - this one with a summer theme!

If you came here from Jennyfer's blog at Scrap a la Jen, then you're in the right place!  Otherwise, be sure to start at the beginning at Suzanne's blog Zannie Berry Scrapbooking.

Before I show you my project, let me show you our wonderful giveaway sponsored by Zannie Berry Scrapbooking!  Check it out below:

Isn't that fabulous???  This prize package is worth $60 and will be given away to one lucky winner!  To be eligible to win, please stop by every blog and be sure to leave a comment on each one.   Don't forget to leave a way to contact you in case you're the lucky winner!

On to my project!  I have recently started getting back into scrapbooking but for some reason I am just really motivated by 6"x 6" layouts and I am making mini albums instead of the larger ones for now.  Soooo, I decided to show you the first 2 pages of my summer mini album:

To make these cute 6 x 6 layouts, I used a paper pack called Surf's Up from Close to My Heart.  I love the color scheme because it just scream out beach ... at least to me it does :)

All the products that I used for this layout came in one kit called the "Surf's Up Workshop on the Go".  The only thing that wasn't in there were the ink pads that I used.  The paper, embellishments and stamp set were ALL included in this fabulous kit.  It also includes an instructional guide that shows you how to make 4 different scrapbook layouts as well as a bonus project!  Isn't that neat?

Now I did make adjustments because I wanted to make the 6 x 6 pages instead of the 12 x 12 but otherwise I did stay fairly true to the guide.
