Perfect Day Summer Loving LayoutStriped and Stenciled Vacation Scrapbook Layout with Lighthouse and Mackinac Bridge by Dana Tatar for FabScraps

Hi! I'm sharing a layout that I created for FabScraps using their Summer Loving collection. I've traveled a lot over the last couple of months. My favorite trip was to Lake Huron. We took off from there and drove up to Mackinac Island for a 2-day trip. My daughters have never been to an island or rode on a ferry, so this was a really fun experience for them. I took this picture as we were passing under the Mackinac Bridge on the ferry ride to the island.

I really love the prints on the B-sides of the papers in this collection. I used the stencil from the collection that matches the Beach Babe B-side patterned paper on the top of the layout to highlight that fun pattern. There are two colorful striped patterned papers in this collection. I cut some strips from one piece of paper to expand my color palette a bit.

If you're on the water in Michigan there is a good chance to see a lighthouse and a sailboat. We saw both on this trip so I added those embellishments to the corner of the photo.

Perfect Day Summer Loving Layout Sunglasses Chipboard

These sunglasses are part of the Beach Wear Chipboard Set. If you're on the water, you've got to have some shades.

I kept this page design pretty clean and simple, which is what the beach is all about for me.
