"The Good Life" Scrapbook Layout

My sons really live the good life! Here, you can see Luis at his grandpa's pool. He loves to visit his grandparents. That day was a Puerto Rico's holiday celebrated on March 22, 2010. So there was no class, and I still remember the unwelcome feeling of summer's weather not so typical on march. So, a swimming pool was really a necessity!

This layout follows sketch from Liz Qualman. It has only patterned paper (6 patterns) and three different manufacturers (Sassafras Lass Indie Girl, Echo Park Paper and Autumn Leaves MOD). The last scrapbook paper's column is from Autumn Leaves MOD, which is discontinued. The alphabet is from a fall line from Sassafras Last and the rest of the stickers are from Echo Paper, Summertime collection.

I submitted this layout to several challenges: 1) Scrapbookers-Anonymous Challenge Blog, 
2) Scrapbook.com Use your Supplies Challenge Forum (Week 1) and 
And yes, you read very well!!! What a strange challenge combination: two peas with SB.com!

Love the objective of Scrapbookers-Anonymous Challenge site. They want people to use old stash in their challenges. I still have so many old papers manufactured previous 2005!! Scenic Route, Creative Imaginations, 7 gypsies, Jenni Bowling, the first release from Cosmo Cricket. So beautiful! Before, I felt anxiety to use them, since I was not sure, if I was able to do them justice!! And now, I have a very big fear to use them, I really very interested to know if they appreciated in value. Now, I realize that I am a scrapbook paper collector! Love patterned paper, for its beauty, for its art!! For the very same reason people collects stamps, figurines, baseball cards, etc.

Tomorrow Tuesday at noon is due The Paper Variety Challenge #4, please do not miss the chance to randomly win a kit from Bo Bunny Winter Joy!! Perfect to document snow pictures!!

Thanks for reading me!! So please, remember to stop here, by this Wednesday, for the next The Paper Variety challenge reveal!! I promise, I will change seasons, no more summer. I am itching to show you, what I did with pattern papers perfect for the Fall season!
