{summer!}

Hi there! Jennifer here - this month Heidi challenged us girls at GCD to do a Summer themed layout. Perfect! My little girl loves being outside and going to the pool during the summer months, so I have no shortage of photos. ;)

 Another requirement for this assignment was to mix up some patterned papers. I pulled papers from Soul Food and Homespun Chic to create my bright color palette.

I also hand cut one of the banner strips from the Fun House line. Another way to use paper with a subtle or light pattern is to print your journaling on it, then cut into strips as I've done with this page. Did you see the cabochon I snuck onto the page? My absolute favorite embellishment right now for sure!

I also added some machine stitching to my page to add a little texture.

And there you have it! A bright and fun summer layout. Pull out those colors and patterns and get to scrappin'!
