The idea I will be sharing with you today is a simple page layout inspired by page 63 from the Reflections how to book. I live in tropical North Queensland and one of our local beaches has great views at sunrise. I love living here and thought I would document what I love about my home town so that my future family can see what I love about it and how it changes. I would love to see your home town featured on your page.

I chose not to use a pattern paper for the background but did not want to use plain colour. So I created a bit of texture with the Stitch Guide and Piercing and Embossing tool. I used the triangle to create a fun pattern in the background card stock. I also pierced a border on photo mat with the piercing tool. This is a tool I love so much and have done a few projects using it to create fun backgrounds. Take a look here and hereJune16 SOTM piercing closeup.jpg

This is a very simple layout and is quick to do. I have stamped the sentiment Love it here  and the combi van and attached to my project with 3d foam tape. Then sun and star have been stamped onto the project. I have then finished the project off by attaching a strip of Twine. June16 SOTM page

I hope you have like this simple project and give it a go. Please feel free to share your page showing what you love about your home town. It would be great to see all the wonderful parts of our country.

This stamp set is $27 if purchased alone or just $7.50 with a qualifying purchase of $75.

Contact your consultant for more information or contact me here.

Remember this stamp set is only available until June 30 so be sure to grab this awesome stamp set before the time gets away.

Please leave a comment before continuing on to Creating with Kara Davies whom I am sure will have a fantastic idea to share.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page idea. Enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop and Happy Paper Crafting
