2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge - Summer Inspiration

It is time once again for's Banana Split Sunday Challenge! This week's challenge is to use this photo as your inspiration:

You can use whatever element you want as your inspiration: color, content, etc. There will be a prize awarded for one random participant in this week's challenge - an Imaginisce goodie bag! Be sure to visit the 2RB blog for more information and to see the DT's samples.

Having recently been to the beach, when I looked at this photo I was inspired by the sand and water. Mostly because I knew I had some photos with exactly those things in them. I decided to do a layout with a few of my photos.

The background is a piece of Crate Paper DP. Most of the DP strips are from EK Success' A Day at the Beach collection, and the pink strip with flowers is from Flair Designs. The chipboard stickers are also EK Success.

I distressed the photo edges with MM distressing tools - roughed up the edges and sanded them. The blue lines were doodled in with a Stardust pen. The sentiment at the upper left corner of the photo is from 2RB's June Journaling Spot stamp set.

What kind of summer inspiration are you feeling right now? Be sure to share it with us at 2RB's blog.

  2. Wendy, This is an awesome page. I love how everything is clustered in one area with the wavy lines around the edges. VERY CUTE! I've still got that Summertime paper and some beach pictures. I may have to scraplift yours :-)
