Channeling Summer

I am a lover of all four seasons but I do have to say, Summer is my favorite. It really just has to do with the longer daylight and not having to put on as much clothes. Otherwise, I really do LOVE all four seasons. :)

The Ready, Set, Go collection by Amy Tangerine for American Crafts screamed SUMMER LAYOUT to me. Seriously. It screamed. So I dug through some photos until I found the perfect trio to document. I created a layout with these photos already but wanted to do some different journaling. 

I chose some calm pattern paper as a base which had some elements already printed on the page. I wanted to work with the elements that framed the top right corner so that is where I chose to put the photos. 

To help with the movement and balance of the layout, I pulled different stickers and pattern papers to layer and bring everything together. 

That really cute September calendar and Happy Summer stickers are from SRM Stickers. I've had them in my stash, forever, just waiting for a project to use them on. 

I love these bingo markers from Maya Road. They are so subtle and add just the perfect touch for this layout. And what layout wouldn't be mine without a little bit of bling!

Winter is just beginning but I'm finding myself ready for those longer days that Summer always promises to bring! Come on daylight!!!

Happy Creating!
