Sunkissed layout by Wendy Sue Anderson

Hi Doodlebug friends - it's Wendy Sue here today!  One of my favorite songs says "Oh, what do you do in the summertime?" And it goes on to talk about all of the fun things you might do (swim in a pool, count the clouds, etc.).  When I first saw the "Sunkissed" line, the song popped in my head, so it was basically mandatory that I create a layout with the song as the title.

These photos are just some quick pics I snapped one day last summer when the kids were just hanging out in the back yard (3 of  my 4 kids), but they pretty much encapsulated what we do on so many of our hot summer days - just hang out in the yard and relax and enjoy each other!

The banner was easy to create with the stickers and some foam adhesive dots.  Adding a bit of doodle twine was the perfect finishing touch.  Oh, and did I mention how much I love the new Skinny letter stickers?!?  VERY much - that's how much!

And the strips of embossed vellum are so light and airy and bright and pretty - I had to add several of those strips. :)

Check out the sprinkle shapes too - seriously, how fun are they?!?

Of course, I had to layer a sunshine doodle-pop right over the coordinating print...and the sunglasses fit too perfectly not to add them.  Doesn't that sunshine just make your day?

Do you have a favorite summertime song?  How about creating a fun layout with the song title or lyrics included?  If you do it, please link it in the comments - I'd sure love to see it!
