"lazy days of summer"

We ALL love Summer. Whether we are relaxing by the pool or taking the kids to the water park or my favorite "The Beach".

Hope you love this layout.

I made this layout using "Life's A Beach". The paper is My Minds Eye Surf's Up.

The turtle was cut at 2" inked and pop dotted.


The lifeguard stand was cut at 5". I cut the image and words first and then cut also at 5" just the chair in white and brown. I offset the orange paper just a bit so you could see it. I inked with Orange Marmalade by Tim Holtz. Then of course using my white pen I spruced it up a little. The sun was cut at 3".




I then cut the hibiscus in a border at 3" and cut the individual flowers at 2 1/2 in all 3 colors and inked with Walnut Stain. Using a pop dot also. And of course my white pen.


I just love this. I cut the sand castle at 2 1/2" and the pail at 1" For the sand pile I just tore a small piece of tan cardstock and embossed with Swiss Dots and inked

Ok-These guys are soo cute. These were cute at 3" and 2 1/2" with 2 layers and embossed with tiny bubbles and inked with the Orange Marmalade with a few white dots and a brown dot for the eye and a few pop dots.

The photo mats can be cut anyway you would like them. The dimensions are as follows: Left side of layout-Journal Box 3 1/2x2 3/8, 3 3/4x 2 3/4 & 4x3. Right side of layout-2 of them at 4 1/2x 5 3/8,4 1/2 x5 3/4 & 4x4 1/2.


Enjoy!!!
