Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop - Picnic Paradise

Welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Pop-Up Blog Hop featuring alternate designs for July's kit, Picnic Paradise.  My friends and I are so excited to share a variety of alternate ideas to inspire you!

July's Picnic Paradise kit was designed with 4 adorable baskets, lined with checked tissue paper.  There are 12 mini cards that can be gifted in the baskets or used as you like.
I was inspired to design a back-to-school layout for scrapbooking.  I designed a two page layout, that is all ready for picture placement and/or journaling on the mats.
 I always take a first day back-to-school photo of each kid.  This year my youngest starts at a new school.  This is a special occasion because the school is just opening, so there will be lots of firsts to capture for the school and her.
 I think this looks so fun for recording our memories.  The colorful tissue is heavy enough to be a decorative layer under each picture mat.  The picnic theme prompted me to use our grassy lawn for the photos today.  You can find a supply list of products for my project at the end of this post.
