Simple Stories: Here Fishy, Fishy!

Camping in the mountains is one of my favorite places to be! The fresh air, the slower pace, the night sky exploding with stars, and the sound of a crackling campfire all inspire me to soak up life and reset my way of thinking.

The NEW Happy Trails collection by Simple Stories, with its cheerful colors and images, makes me want to pack up the trailer right now and head out for a weekend in the woods!

This page features photos of my son when he was younger fishing at a small roadside pond near one of our favorite camping sites. There he could catch and release as many fish as he would like and was his FAVORITE thing to do on our camping trips.

I LOVE every single pattern in the Happy Trails collection and wanted to find a way to include as many of them as I could on this page. I created a triangle-shaped template that I used to create long pennant shapes to go across the top of my page. I added a few red gem brads to one of them and a cluster of stickers and Bits & Pieces die cuts on another.

I fussy-cut this large floral from the 4×4 Elements paper to accent the left side of my photo strip. I added a red gem brad to the center of the yellow flower and then added  word die cuts to fill in the empty space in the top right corner of my photo.

I added the “Gone Fishing” die cut below the two smaller photos, along with a bit of journaling on the plaid journal block from the Journal Bits & Pieces pack. I fussy cut the fish from another die cut to accent the right side, and then tucked in a flower sticker on the right.

On the left side, I created a fun little sticker forest scene with the raccoon and a pair of fluffy pine trees. CUTE!

I almost always create three embellishment clusters in my page designs, and when I do, I like to add something that ties them all together. In this case, I used the ADORABLE mosquito die cuts! (Probably, the one and only time I will think mosquitos are adorable. Ha!)  How cute are they buzzing around each section of this page?!
