Howdy! I know you probably have something great planned for this beautiful July weekend, especially if you live in the States.... but I sure am happy you took some time to make your way through another fan-tab-ulous Kiwi Lane Blog Hop!

I'm the last one on this hop, but make sure you leave a comment on my blog (and all the others, including the Kiwi Lane blog!) for a chance to win a prize- a $25 gift code to the Kiwi Lane Shop! Hooray!!

Do you have photos of certain things that you don't scrapbook very often? I have a LOT of photos from family fishing trips and they tend to get pushed to the back of my box and skipped over for photos that are "prettier." Let's face it- girly pages with all the glitter, jewels, flowers and frills are just more fun! So the fishing photos sit and wait while I work with photos that can have flowers and bling, but that's not going to be the case from now on! Why? Because I have the Happy Trails, Paradise, Wacky and Tiny Wacky template sets from Kiwi Lane. Between those 4 sets, I have everything I need to make a fantastic (non-girly) fishing page:
I used some super old (but still loved... by me!) paper, embellishments and letter stickers from Scenic Route to make this layout. And instead of cutting the Happy Trails into, well.... trails, I used just one edge to get a wavy line border. I did the same thing to the strips by the photos on the left page. See how multi-functional the trails are?! Love them! Here's what my page looked like when I "Framed" out my layout:
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic!
And here's a detail of one of my fish with the twine/fishing line:
Kiwi Lane Designs Templates used:
Tiny Wacky 1T, 2T
Paradise 1, 5
Wacky 1, 2, 3
Happy Trails 1A, 3A, 3B
I hope this inspired you to pull out some photos you don't often go to, along with your templates, and see what you can come up with! Do you think you need another push towards being inspired? How about if a prize is involved? A template set, maybe?
One lucky commenter on my blog will win a set of Wacky Accessory templates. Just let me know in your comment what photos you tend to shy away from because they aren't what you typically like to work on. (It doesn't have to be a separate comment- one comment will enter you in both drawings. You have until Sunday, July 7, 2013 at 11:59 PM MST to leave a comment. Must be a resident of the United States or Canada to win template set.) Can't wait to see what everyone says!
Remember to leave comments at every blog along the hop to be entered to win the $25 gift code from Kiwi Lane! One commenter from one of the blogs will win! You have until Sunday, July 7, 2013 at 11:59 PM MST to enter.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!
