The sun is up


And another picture of my sister at 6 yo playing on the beach. On the background my father is making a sand castle, something that he always liked to do when I was little and then again when my sister was little! This is the last layout I’ve made using Simple Stories’ Summer Vibes collection and photos from old summers.




It’s a perfect day


This layout shows my sister at 6 yo during one of our vacations. She was the cutest little girl ever, am I right?

Papers and embellishments are all from Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection except the wood buttons by Shimelle.

Hello Summer


Going on with summer memory lane: today layouts features one of the few pictures I have with my parents in my teens! In this photo I was 19 and on vacation in Tunisia with my parents and sister. Well, my sister’s not in the photo but she was somewhere around, she was 7, so she was probably playing with her friends!

For the layout I’ve used the Summer Vibes collection by Simple Stories, plus the gold hello pin from Dear Lizzy and a mason jar pocket by Crate Paper.





Here it is, another summery layout with Simple Stories’ Summer Vibes collection. In this layout you can see me at about 9 yo on a beach with my mother. I really had a super tan, something that seems so impossible now: I’ve stopped sun bathing in my teens, mostly because I can’t stand the heat, and I am always very pale, almost glow-in-the-dark pale!

Enjoy the simple life


After a couple of extremely busy weeks, I’m back today with a new layout with the gorgeous Summer Vibes collection by Simple Stories. As usual I love everything in their collections and feel compelled to buy every single piece, and this collection may just be one of my favorites ever. Since the vintage feel reminds me of my childhood (especially the audio cassettes and the soda’s bottles and caps) I’ve picked up some photos of summer past to match the feel! I will share all the layouts I’ve made in the next days.

In this layout you can see me, almost 3 yo, relaxing on a beach chair. I never get to use all those 2×2 squares that are included in the cut apart sheets, so this time I’ve decided to use them all and challenge myself to make something I usually don’t like and never do: a grid! And I must say I really like the result!
