"Enjoy Every Moment" (of Summer) - Single 12 x 12 Layout

Hello!!  We have had everything from Snow, Sleet, Ice to now Rain and Wind over the last 3 weeks... that a Summer scrapbook layout was a MUST on my to do list.  These are pictures of my family along with my Parents hanging out on the river at one of our summer get aways called Crescent Bar.  I have been going here every summer since I was 13... and now my kids are learning why it is so special.  The sad thing is...it all might be going away in May, 2012.  So my choice for my Title "Enjoy Every Moment"... is perfect for our possible last Summers here.  Hope you enjoy.  I'm sure I will have more of these layouts in the future... for I have ALOT of photos.  :-)  The photo here seems "Grainy"... but hopefully you get the idea.

I am entering this into the CCMC 141 Challenge, Create with Connie & Mary , where the challenge was to use 4 colors (So Saffron, Real Red, Crumb Cake & Whisper White) only... and all the products have to be Stampin' Up.  I am pleased that I was able to do this.  If you are an SU only person... then this is the Challenge blog for you. 

I am also submitting with Karen and the DT over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenge 28, where the theme is "You're the boss"... submit something that best refelcts your style of Scrappin'.  They have anything from sketch to theme challenges... and it must be a Scrapbook Layout only.  Great way to get those pages done!! 
Thank you so much for looking!  I love all of your comments.  It's fun!

Supplies:  All Stampin' Up Products
Cardstock:  Real Red, So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Stamps:  Fresh Flowers, Enjoy Every Moment, Gallery
Embellishments:  Summer Days Simply Scrappn', Real Red 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Filgree Brad, Modern Label punch, Decorative XL Label punch, Small Oval punch, Scallop border punch.

Great bright color scheme - and I love seeing that border go around a bigger piece like that! I usually only see them on small pieces - like cards, and it's nice to see it done for a scrapbook page.
