Strawbah bah bah bababerry

Summer is here! One day it was cool the next it was a scorcher! It came like a thief in the night, literally! We cool off in the summer by splashing in the pool, throwing water balloons and eating fresh fruit. Yep that's right. Fresh watermelon and strawberries are the best.

I took this picture of my cousin not to long ago. I couldn't wait to scrap it. To me it screams summer. Her beautiful golden hair and that bright red strawberry. Perfect summer photo.

I used GCD's Melody ross line homespun chic-applique. I cut out the sweet birds and flowers to add to my white cardstock. I also punched scalloped circles to go under my title.

I love adding texture and dimension to my pages. I achieved the dimension by pop dotting the flowers and bird. The sewing around the page and under the title adds the texture I love.

The Layered frames also from Homespun adds even more depth to the layout. They are simply beautiful and set off the picture nicely.

Homespun Chic is so feminine and bright. It works for every season.

Make sure to stay cool and try some nice cool fruit to kick off the summer.
