Summer Adventures with Webster's Pages

Hi Lovelies.  It is Ifa with you today. Are you enjoying the summer holiday ? I am. I am also grateful for the brief respite in the evenings when rain comes.  I definitely need cooling down. 
I have been on two summer adventures already in this searing hot weather we are having.  First, my order for sunny days whilst camping at Linnet Clough was delivered. We had a week of glorious sun shine.  Not so great when you have a 15 km hike, especially climbing up to Jacobs Ladder!
I made a layout about that hike. I didn't enjoy it so I said so on my layout. Not all layouts have to paint a rosy picture! I also took some pictures of the boys ( Wolves, hello! ) who accompanied me on this journey cooling off in the water but I can't share those with you.

Soon after that trip, we went on a family holiday to the New Forest. We decided to take the ferry to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight for a day. I managed to persuade my guys to pose for this self timed photo. Precious. My camera was perched on a stone wall and the next stop would have been the sea!

Have you noticed ?  I have gone for yellow backgrounds this month.  Perhaps this echoes the bright sunny days ? I have also used pretty papers and embellishments from Webster's Pages, Modern Romance and New Beginnings. I especially adore the mini bags and resin embellishments. Here they are close up.

What adventures are you up to this summer ?  Whatever you get up to, have fun and don't forget the sun lotion. See you at the end of the holidays.

Love the yellow and especially the composition of the second layout. Am just catching up with a bit of blogging whilst the little one sleeps - I will be doing the big reveal on my blog later today. Thanks for your concern Ifa and thoughts! xx

Such a bright happy page for your not so fun hike!
I'm always balancing my camera in precarious places - maybe we should attach a length of string to them :)
