As our days heat up with hot summer weather, many of us seek out places to help us feel cool and peaceful. The Southeast Botanical Gardens is just the place for those of us on Okinawa to relish in that lazy and sultry summer feeling while meandering through nature trails of lush tropical scenery.
It’s impossible not to take frame after frame of photos once you find such a gorgeous place. Narrowing down my choices of pictures to scrapbook used to seem so difficult until I began using Mosaic Moments Grid Paper. This month’s featured Grid Paper, called Bamboo, is the perfect accent for summer garden shots.
Combining this pretty paper with one of Tami’s Page Patterns made the process swift and easy and allowed me to use as many of those gorgeous shots as I wanted. I’ve fit 17 photos and a journaling block on this two page spread.
The pattern I used is called Pinwheel and can be found here, or by clicking on the Page Patterns link above. You’ll not only find this 9-spot Pinwheel, but dozens of other patterns for one special photo, 5 photos, 7 photos – to Infinity and beyond! Well, OK, I get a bit carried away, but the possibilities do seem limitless as you’ll see by the samples under some of the Patterns.
Even though I love scrapbooking, I don’t want to lose a minute of my time enjoying the beautiful summer weather. Tami’s Page Patterns give me that freedom to enjoy myself outdoors knowing I still have time to make the most of my summer photos in a quick and eye-catching manner.
I hope you have a botanical gardens or similar place near you where you can enjoy the beauty of a summer landscape, and take piles of photos to scrapbook with the pretty Bamboo Grid Paper. Take a look at all the great Page Patterns and you won’t lack for inspiration!
