Layout of the Week – Our Pool!

Hi everyone! I think that our house is finally emerging from our latest round of sickness! YEAH! After missing out on so many things this last week, it feels good to be getting back to normal. I caught the bug after Delaney was finally getting better and then poor little Jakey caught it. He’s coming out of it now and we’re hoping that it missed Dave entirely! Thanks for all the ‘Get Well’ wishes this last week! ๐Ÿ™‚

I do have a cool summer layout to get you inspired this week! I love the new summer collection from Cosmo Cricket, it’s called Snorkel! I love all the bright colors and bold graphics. It also matched perfectly with all my photos from our backyard pool last summer. We put up a pool out there every summer and really enjoy being able to float around every chance we get. I wasn’t sure how Jake would like the pool, it not being heated & all! But he LOVED it, just check out his expression!

In addition to three papers from the Cosmo’s Snorkel collection, I used both bright & dark red textured cardstock from Prizm in this layout. For my titles, I used my trusty Diesel font from Quickutz. This time I chose the lower case, to give my layout a more laid back look. I didn’t use any extra embellishments on this one, so it’s a pretty economical layout. Instead, I followed the cool flowing designs of these papers and trimmed them with my scissors for some custom edging. Give trimming a try the next time you’ve got a design you love!

Don’t forget to join me later, over at Ann’s for our favorite Friday party, Virtual Girls’ Night Out! Really, it’s the only way most of us get to get out these days! ๐Ÿ™‚
