Sunshine & Rainbows for Homecoming

For 2019 Homecoming, my daughter went with a group of friends. Their dresses were a rainbow of bold jewel colors. I took so many photos! When I have a lot of pics from one event, I love to find a Creative Memories Fast2Fab page option to make scrapbooking simpler. Fast2Fab pages are pre-designed, just add pictures, embellishments, and journaling if desired. Creative Memories had just introduced the Rainbow Rush collection- I knew that would be perfect. My dilemma was that there wasn’t a Fast2Fab refill set for the Rainbow Rush collection. Simply Sunshine had some great yellow and green tones, but it had pink in it which I really didn’t care for. I debated the Harvest Delight set also, but I really wanted those Rainbow Rush Bold colors. I finally settled on using the Simply Sunshine Fast2Fab page refill set with Rainbow Rush paper and embellishments to create a customized look.

Rainbow has four different embellishment packs: Laser, Layered Border, Layered Title, Flowers. I used some from all of them in this book.
Paper from Rainbow Rush Bold…Simply Sunshine mat for journaling.
Pretty simple layout- only added mats for photos, mat for journaling, Simply Said embellishment, and Rainbow Rush Layered Title embellishment.
This Simply Sunshine mat was trimmed down with the scallop blade in the 12″ trimmer to make it more appropriately sized for the space.
The purple strips cut with wavy decorative blade in the 12″ trimmer add a great contrast to the yellow and coordinated with the girls’ dresses.
Accented with Rainbow Rush flowers and Simply Sunshine embellishment.
Love the simplicity of this layout.
The focus is on the girls (sorry you can’t see their beautiful faces!)
These Rainbow Rush Layered Titles really are some kind of wonderful!
With leaves from Simply Sunshine embellishments.
I used the Decorative Lattice border punch to add dimension. It’s no longer available but our current Basketweave or Scallop would offer a similar effect. Butterflies from Simply Sunshine embellishments and of course, another Rainbow Rush Layered Title.
ABC letters are old CM- white swirly monograms.
Picking one border punch and varying the colors/papers used carry a consistent theme throughout the book. I chose the dark purple to complement her friend’s purple dress.

The last page was one of my favorites! The printed pages came with this beautiful wreath. I covered up the pink flowers with Rainbow Rush Flower Embellishments. The blue flowers form a triangle for the eye and help focus on the picture. I asked the girls to line up in rainbow order- so pretty!
