Summer's slowly moving to the end but I'm still super motivated to scrap summer photos, even though I see Halloween stuff everywhere... :)  For this project, I'm using the wonderful Seaside Summer collection and scrapping a photo from three years ago, when I spent time with my friends at the Bahamas. 

To start this layout, I went through the papers and chose a the Let's Luau paper with Hibiscus flowers and Island Tropics paper with leaves. I already cut out a ton of shells for a different layout, a few weeks ago, so now I did it again. I fussy cut out a lot of red flowers and green leaves. I wanted to fill the page with them. 

After cutting out the flowers, I chose patterned papers and cut out letters to write the word SUMMER. I distressed the edges and adhered them to some vellum. Then I cut them out again, leaving a vellum border and distressing the edges.

I adhered the letters to my white cardstock using thin foam tape and then started adding my flowers. At first, I just placed them everywhere I wanted, to see if I liked it, before adhering them permanently to my page with liquid glue. I gave them some dimension, by pressing the center of the flowers down and by bending the leaves. 

Then I chose some Doodle Pops to add to my page. I wanted to use this cocktail glass with the straw... Even though I think it's too detailed in that spot of the page, I couldn't not use it... it was just too perfect with the photo. :)

Then I used some sea animals and the sand castle. 

To give the flowers a pop of color, I used enamel dots and jewels to adhere to their centers. To finish the layout, I added watercolor in two places and splattered some paint.

I think the layout turned out fun and cute and colorful. I hope you're inspired to do some fussy cutting, It always pays out in the end... :)  Have a good week, see you!
