Picnic LO

My dad's union has a picnic every summer and he loves for us to go with him so he can show off his grandkids to all his friends!  Its a lot of fun and they always have a bunch of stuff for the kids to do and yummy food to boot!  This was my oldest son's first time attending, so of course he was the highlight of the day!  (I have the pictures, just haven't added them yet!)  I also plan to add a journaling square in the green cardstock between the picnic basket and the picture on the bottom.

I used several different DCWV paper stacks to make this LO - 'All About Boys', 'Neutrals' cardstock stack, and 'Amber Autumn' cardstock stack, then a few pieces of cardstock from my stash.  The grill, sun (I used my gelly roll 'starburst' pen to add sparkle to the sun) and picnic basket (I traced the weave with my SU marker to give it some dimension) were all from Everyday Paper Dolls, the pennants from Create A Critter (they were originally signs but I cut the pole off!) and the font from Lyrical Letters.  I used Twine from The Twinery and Recollections star brads to hold the banners.

I am entering this LO into the Stack-a-holic Template challenge on DCWV Diary - it was to make a 2 page LO based on this sketch.

I'm also entering it into the Cricut Circle Blog monthly challenge - it was to make something with a BBQ, Picnic, or Patio theme, AND a gingham or check pattern.  I needed to scrap these pictures anyway, so it worked out perfectly for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
