A little more than a week ago I had a scrapbooking course @ Pyssloteket where I aimed to inspire my students to try clean & simple. My page wasn't finished during the course, but I finished it at home afterwards:
The patterned paper with a map pattern is really a Christmas themed paper, but I wanted to show you that it's absolutely ok to use Christmas papers for a summer themed layout as well! Look at this - doesn't the patterned papers go well together and with the adventure theme of the page? Sometimes I'd like to think i DO think out of the box a bit... ;-)
Of course you can find all the details here and the links to what supplies I've used.
