Scraptastic Club Riptide Kits: Cheers

I am loving the bright, fun colors in the Riptide kit and add-on from Scraptastic Club this month, especially since there is no sign of autumn here in Texas! Lately, I've been feeling the need to make things simple- it could be me just preparing for busy times ahead, or the fact that I'm creating during nap time, but I'm loving this natural progression in my layouts. Today's layout was just that- quick and simple. 

With the start of October here, we saw a slight drop in temperature, enough to allow us to eat dinner outside. I was so lucky to capture this photo on one of those cooler evenings, when we were celebrating having Daddy back after being away two weeks on business.

On this layout, I utilized the power of the diagonal line to draw your eye right through the photo, with the placement of embellishment, tags, and rub-ons. I love the mix of Amy Tangerine Finder's Keepers and Elle's Studio Thankful- the two collections just work so well together! 

Along with the kits, I used the Riptide digital files, Riptide stamp set, and Planner stamp set (which I am loving the small size to just add little bits to my layout- like I did here with "dinner" next to my journaling tag.) 

Thanks for stopping by today! Check out more inspiration using the Riptide kits here on the Scraptastic Club Riptide pin board.
