I'm sharing a layout with you with some pictures from the first truly beautiful, perfect 'summery' day we had this year. So strange to see my sweet little guy playing in his sprinkler only one week after we actually had a little snow flurry! Anyhow, crazy weather aside - here is my summer-themed layout, which I've called "Perfect Day".
I used some elements from the ScrapThat! June Kit to create this layout, as well as a number of items from my scrappy stash. I wanted this to be a really playful layout - so I started out with the base page and added a paper bag and then did some paint splattering in aqua to get a 'sprinkler/splash' effect. I cut strips of the printed vellum to use as the photo mats and added in a piece of scripted packaging as the mat behind the main photo.
To embellish the layout, I added the amazing Prima Zipper Flower and bird clip from the ScrapThat! FAO and Main kit, respectively, as well as an unaltered chipboard bird and transparent foliage stickers (from Michael's). The banner elements are cut from Prima packaging. I also included several glass pebbles from my stash around the layout to play on the water droplet effect.
In addition to the title, I randomly placed words around the photos to further embellish the layout and add to the playful nature of the design.
