Thinkin' Summer.

Since we have already established that I am dreaming of Summer...how about we make it worse by posting pics of summer?  :)  A while back I was asked my Creating Keepsakes to do a special assignment for them, which of course, I jumped at the chance.  Not long ago, they released a special issue called Scrapbooking Ideas For Every Season.  In it you can find this layout:

Yep, it screams summer!  Which was actually the assignment.  All the papers, chipboard and rub-on's are from Fancy Pants Designs.  

Design Notes:
*  Use your scraps and create two strips of 2 x 2 squares, add 2 x 2 photos in as well.  
*  I created a red scallop border to go under my strips of paper and photos, but to break up the straight linear feeling, I tilted them!
*  When I hand cut the scalloped border out of the red paper, I used both sides (top one looks more like waves and bottom like scallops)
*  Try making a large sun and building your page around it! 
*  Add your journaling in the form of a wave, then add stitching in between for a fun look. 
*  Try adding rub-on's directly to your photos, like my "Hello Sunshine" on the pool pic. 

Here are some close up's:

I really had a lot of fun with this 2 page layout.  :)

But it does make me long for summer even more.
Oh well.

:)

Thanks for stopping in today!!!  Have a wonderful day!
