Berry Tongues

Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂

What is your childhood association with summertime? In my family it’s always been blackberry picking and eating, making blackberry pies, dumplings, jelly, eating them with sugar and cream… 🙂 So the singature look for summer kids in my family is a berry tongue! And it’s no different for my kids:

I used the Tropical Garden collection not only because it’s a perfect summer collection, but also because it features that perfect shade of berry purple 🙂 I matted the photo with bits of paper and hand-cut tags and added art clay fern leaves, “berry twigs” with mulberry leaves and die-cut berries 🙂 I also die-cut letters to arrange the title. I finished the layout by spraying some moss-green and gold mist.

And here’s what I used:

That’s all for today, see you soon!

    An absolut gorgeous layout here again from you Maja, and your boys looks amazing on this picture. I love these oold traditions too and we were the same years ago, but unfortunately none of my adult kids wants to keep on with these traditions and keep saying it´s too timeconsuming, but funny enough they don´t mind it, when mum makes a portion and share with them LOL.
