Now for Mendi's adorable Summer Fun Project!!

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with a fun summer themed layout using more of Doodlebug's adorable Sunkissed collection.
When creating this layout I chose a grid design, but I needed something to fill that last remaining square. After considering using it for my title or a journaling block, I decided to create a handmade sunshine embellishment.  I fashioned him from a circle die-cut, alternating strips of the two tangerine tone-on-tone prints from the collection and a pair sunglasses from the icon sticker sheet.  I love how he rounds out my visual triangle and took on a little personality of his own.
I thought these photos of my daughter wearing a darling popsicle tankini from several years ago were just so perfect for the images in this collection.
The only problem was the pink in her swimsuit was clashing with the pinks in some of the papers.  I was able to solve that by sticking mostly with tone-on-tone prints and pulling in the perfect bubblegum pink from the Petite Prints collection.  To tie it in bubblegum color some more, I die-cut mini flowers from the same paper to layer over the printed flowers on the flip flop stickers and used a strip of the rainbow washi tape.
Don't these happy colors just scream summer?!  They make me want to sip a fruity smoothie while dipping my feet in the pool.  :)
