Look >> Summer (I wish!)

Oh, how I do wish summer was here already!  Although most of you probably think Florida's "winter" is equivalent to your summer...haha!  I'm ready for swimming, sun and kicking back.  This layout today showcases how we spend our lazy summer days...splashing around in the pool :)

This is my final January layout featuring the January Creative Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  I couldn't let it run out without scrapping some pool pictures!  These bright colors just scream summer, and I knew the pretty blues from pool photos would contrast nicely with these papers.

I used white cardstock as my background and just added some watercolor to it.  I didn't want it too busy; I wanted the layers & patterned papers to pop.  I love how the Daily Grind collection focuses on all the days of the week, and this tabbed paper was so fun to play with!

This rainbow film strip color wheel was my favorite piece on the chipboard sheet...I'm such a sucker for rainbows :)   These fun wooden veneer pieces are fun to play with, too.

Just a close-up of the layers and thread.  I love to ink up the edges and curl them up so they look a little worn.

Love this woodgrain chipboard camera!  I layered this wooden word bubble on top of it for some dimension.

Stay tuned for the February kits coming soon...they are ALL so beautiful!

Thanks for visiting me today...have a good one!
