Celebrate Summer

Challenge 28 over at Crop Chocolate was another FUN one!!  It is to create a project that "Celebrates Summer" with the added requirement of including water. Water can be added however you want - in a photo, a stamp, a wave border, rain, etc!!
I did a layout, 12x12.  I know…another one!  I am on a roll.  I might even have enough pages to put an album together soon.
Crop Chocolate products:  Echo Park Everyday Eclectic, Summertime and Playground cardstock.  I really like the new Everyday Eclectic, great colors and even greater patterns!!  Distress Ink-Broken China and Spiced Marmalade, Xyron Mega Runner, Fancy Pants Summer Soiree stamps, Liquid Pearls-white
Non-CC products:  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Jazz Blue, various punches, Hexagon template, Stickles-Orange Peel, MS glitter
One of my scrappy friends, Scrappy Canuck, is always doing great projects that inspire me to try things I normally wouldn’t.  On this project it was hidden journaling.  You can see what else she is up to by clicking here.

This will be a great place for me to tell the story of this page!  And I snuck in an extra photo to complete the photo journey of this snapshot in time.

There are a lot of different techniques on this page…fussy cutting, misting, pearl swirls, punching, distressing, stamping and of course BLING!  I love the layers and how all the colors came together.
I hope you enjoyed this project and that you stop by again soon.
