*~* Summer Begins Blog Hop *~*

Thanks for joining us for the Summer Begins Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived from Leah's Blog  The hop begins on Kathryn's blog if you'd like to start at the top.

 We have 16 fabulous designers all ready to show you a SUMMERY creation! This is a two-day hop. so some will have a second project posted tomorrow, so be sure to stop by again!

For me, as a teacher, summer begins when school gets out!  However, now that we have a POOL at our house, summer begins when its warm enough to get in the pool :-)  Sad to say that here in "sunny" California- we've only been in our pool twice and it was freezing!  This weekend it is warming up though....

Today I want to share with you a Studio J layout that I created with pics of my kiddos in the pool for the first time!  I used CTMH's Love your Layout video as my guide and tried to follow it pretty closely! 

Here's CTMH's sample layout from the video:

And here's mine :)  I changed out the papers to work better for my pool pictures.  I did create the pinwheel flower using ribbon, stickease and brads.  I also did some layering of the embellishments like they did.  And I added some color to my journaling as well.  
Best part----- DONE in about 20 minutes :)

What do you think???

OK, I truly need to get more digitally up to date. The digital Layouts are so great and look so much like you added all the embellies by hand. TFS and for participating in the hop.
