Summer Fun!

Since summer is almost here, I thought it'd be fun to pull out a summer layout of my son from one of our vacations.

I just love the combination of blue and red! 
For this layout, I started out with some navy cardstock then cut down the patterned paper, inked the edges with red and attached to the cardstock.  Next I tore a lighter blue pattern paper as a back drop to my title.  I inked the edges of this piece in blue and attached the letters.

I used Cricut George and Basic Shapes cart to cut the letters, circle mat and photo. I matted the 2nd photo inking both with red and layered them on the layout.

Now it was time to dress things up to finish it out!  I added rubons, chipboard elements, ric rac sticker and faux stitching all around the edges.  That's it my friends :D super easy right!

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on yesterday's post.  I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one with purple issues, lol.  I've got another altered journal in the works that I'll be sharing soon so stay tuned!!  Oh hey, look over to the right and check out my "Well OWL Be" blog hop badge!  I've been invited to participate in Heather Lynn's very first Blog Hop, isn't that GREAT!!  This is going to be my very first Blog Hop so I'm pretty excited :D  I've been wanting to do something with Owls and now I have my chance, so stay tuned for that too I'm sure all the ladies will be knocking it out of the park with their Owly creations!!!
