My first layout with "Our Summer"

Good morning!
I've got a layout to share that I made with the newest kit from Noel Mignon

As soon as my "Our Summer" kit showed up at my door I could not wait to dig in!
I had to be out of town last weekend for a continuing education course and I totally took the kit with me so I could scrap in the hotel room at the end of the day. 
Nothing like unwinding after a long day of learning by scrapping with some fun, new supplies!!

Want to see what I made??! 
This one is kind of a "life update" layout. 
These pictures of my brothers & their girls were taken back at Thanksgiving and I had yet to scrap them. 

I like to do these "life update" layouts every now and then. 
I make these layouts with journaling about what is going on right now. 
It's not a layout about an event or an accomplishment or a holiday or anything like that. 
Nope, it's just a layout about the here and now. 
It's all about what the subject is doing right now: where they are working, what their hobbies are, how they are spending their time, where they are living, etc. 
 I usually don't even worry about making the pictures match the date of the journaling. 
These layouts are all about the journaling so I just find a picture or 2 of the subjects and make 'em work! 
This is a great way to scrap random extra pictures you have!
Then I just make sure to put 2 dates on the layout: 1) the date of when the pics were taken and 2) when the journaling was done. I think layouts like this will be fun to look back on in like 10 years or so and remember what was going on back then! 
And now I am just rambling.
Summer Camp starts over at Noel Mignon today!

Check out the Noel Mignon Facebook page and come get in on the fun!
Have an awesome day!
