Snapping and Scrapping My Summer

Last month's Snap and Scrap Your Summer blog series over at Two Peas was lots of fun. I even entered Kristina's challenge to use atmospheric photos to create a page about the surroundings of an event, memory or whole season. We love to spend warm summer days at Greenfield Village, so that was the subject of my layout.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Border Punch: Fiskars; Letters: American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket; Embellishments: Jillibean Soup, Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket

Journaling reads: "We love to spend a beautiful summer afternoon strolling the village, enjoying the slower pace of life. "Our garden" is a favorite stop. Always a photo opportunity to shoot here!"
And guess what? I was picked the winner of the challenge! Several days later, a package arrived on my doorstep from Two Peas. Here's what I found inside.
I think this is a pretty generous prize! Paper, brads, embellishments, a stamp, and even a signed letter from Jamie Sorenson, who I think is such a sweetie. Haven't had a chance to play with these goodies yet. For now they sit on my scrap table tempting me. Have you ever won anything from Two Peas?

  2. That's gorgeous - love it. Pity those photos weren't taken in the UK - they'd be perfect for a couple of big photo comps running at the moment.
    Congratulations - the only place I ever won anything was Soulscrappers. I find 2 peas a little intimidating TBH - I feel my LOs are inadequate. I think it's the size in part, which contributes to a lack of comments.
    Loving Shimelle's 4X6 photo love course over there tho'.
