A reminder of summer

Brrr cold, rain and stormy outside. The frontlawn is covered in broken off branches from the Kowhai tree. Winter. I am so not a winter person…
Perfect time for a little summer reminder. Had so much fun doing this mini album about Rainer and my lil’ summer trips for my DT stuff over at NZScrapbookShop . using the yummy BasicGrey Boxer range. I designed and cut our various shapes of cardboard by hand… I so need a quickcutz or something. ( Rainer, I hope you are reading this!) Distressed a lot as well as inking up with white for that washed up look. Rather like the way it all came together.

    edited: Thanks!
    Used a scallop trim wrapping that came with my fancy pants stamps as a template. For the blue one I might have used and adapted a paperborder from Sassafraslas Paper.
