Two Scrapbook Friends National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop!

 


Welcome to the Two Scrapbook Friends National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Christa's blog. I am sure she inspired you with her fabulous use of patterned paper!
My letter is 'Y' and my technique/element is Y-our favourite embellishment.  This was an absolute no-brainer for me, it had to be wood veneer shapes. You see I have amassed quite the collection over the last few years and I don't seem to be slowing down at all.  I love wood veneer for its versatility; ink it, paint it, mist it or leave it plain. No matter how you use it, wood always works!

Here's a peek at my collection

For my layout I used wood veneer from Studio Calico, Freckled Fawn and
a big arrow from Basic Grey. I love how so many companies have jumped on this trend.
 
Carolyn and I enjoy this 'Happy Moment' often throughout the summer.
 Here's my ode to Dollar Drink Days at McDonald's.
 I used my Silhouette to cut out the 'happy moment' mat and layered it over some great new papers from the 'Americana' collection by Pebbles. I LOVE that white washed WOODgrain background!
The polaroid and 'smile' sticker are from Simple Stories and the 'favorites' banner is from a Queen & Co travel paper. It's always fun to pull bits and pieces from different manufactuers together.
 
I hope you've had a wonderful time hopping around and feel inspired to create some of your own SCRAPPY projects! Just remember to leave a comment on each blog as you go. This way you will qualify to be in a draw for a fabulous Blog Hop prize.
