Oh goodness - what can I  say about this collection? I LOVE Summer themed collections and Doodlebug knocked it out of the park with the "Bar-B-Cute" collection! From the second I saw it, I could smell food on the grill, the sound of the family laughing, and the sweet taste of lemonade! I wanted to capture a fun memory of a family BBQ we had a few years back so I decided to create this fun double-page spread to commemorate the special day! 

The left side of my layout was SO MUCH FUN to put together! I used quite a few die cuts from the Odds and Ends and layered them along the top edge- right above my photos for a fun border of cute icons. I added a few sentiments from the Chit Chat die cuts as well.  I added some of our Sprinkles here and there for some shine and color and then added some tiny black dots with my Nuvo Drops. I tied some black and white Bakers Twine under the photos for some added texture and a pop of black! 

Here are some close-ups:

The right hand page is a spot for a couple of photos of my favorite "King of the Grill" and who can resist cute kids with messy faces from eating yummy watermelon. These are precious memories to me! The "Family BBQ" title is made from 2 die cuts in the Chit Chat and then the bottom corner features a few more die cuts from the Odds and Ends and more Sprinkles and Nuvo Drops. 
Here are the close-ups of this side:

Aren't these little ants the absolute cutest ants you ever did see?  I also added a few word stickers from the This and That Sticker Sheet on some of the photos. 
Here is the layout with the pages side by side. I did use a sketch from the Summer edition of Scrapbook and Cards today to make my layout. Big Thanks to them for the sketch! I  love to use sketches as a jumping-off point to create my layouts. Make sure you check them out!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to create a layout of your next family BBQ using this wonderful collection! Happy Crafting friends!
