The September sketch for Sketchbook 365 has spots for three photos. I decided that design was the perfect match for a page that depicts the high points of the three months of summer!

I had a bunch of scraps from the summery Lily Bee "Pinwheel" line that I wanted to use. They made a colorful, fun background for my photo strip.
The sketch has a lot of negative space in the background. I used this negative space to list all the fun things that my family did during the summer. I added subtle journaling lines and "magical" doodled bubbles with a white ("Picket Fence") Distress Marker.
A real root beer cap (from a refreshing summer drink) became a fun page embellishment. I flattened the bottle cap slightly, using a pair of pliers, and I added a light coat of crackle glaze over the top.
For added sparkle and texture, I also brushed crackle glaze over the round stickers on the page.
I hope that your summer (if you are in the Northern Hemisphere) was epic too! If you're in the Southern Hemisphere, then I hope that you have an epic summer ahead of you!
P.S. Denise's green statement: this layout is green because it uses up scraps and incorporates an upcycled bottle cap.
