Hi Everyone! Jill here to share my very first Summer layout of the season with you! I took these photos of my son just a couple of weeks ago while we were at a neighborhood BBQ. I absolutely love my neighbors, once it starts getting warm outside I don’t think we go a week without having some sort of get together or barbecue. All of our kids are really close in age and play together nearly every day. During the summers we set up pools and waterslides and the kids play while we cook, eat and hang out all night. As much as I love our barbecue nights I realized that I barely had any photos from our fun nights together! I made it a goal of mine to change that and I have been trying to bring my camera over as much as possible this Summer. I find that most of the photos that I take are photos of our kids playing, of course! Here are two of my favorites from this Summer so far.
I began my layout with the Life is a Beach Cartridge . Even though it’s a few years old it’s a cartridge that I go back to every year when I’m creating Summer projects. I cut a waves border because no “pool” layout is complete without some water or waves incorporated into it somewhere! I cut the big summer flowers in patterned paper and cardstock to coordinate with the flower patterned paper that I used for the layout background.
My son is drinking a juice box in the photo but when I think of playing on hot summer days I automatically think about refreshing, cold popsicles. I cut the popsicle in brown cardstock and pink patterned paper with the Summer Celebrations cartridge to add to the layout.
I used a Type Candy font and Birthday Bash Cartridge fonts along with some brown letter stickers to compose the title. I finished off the layout with a few page pebbles and my new go-to embellishment- Washi Tape!
Happy Summer everyone!
