Poolside Memories

Poolside Memories
Hello Friends!
It's Nathalie with you today to share a new project featuring the super fun Retro Summer collection.  I love Kelly Bangs designs, and this collection is Summer perfection.   I love the designs, and it made it so easy to create this new layout:
I love the POOL RULES patterned paper! And wanted to make it a feature for my layout.   So, my choice was to put the images right in the middle of the page!
Of course, I reached for the Chipboard frames for a way to make my pictures the focal point in this page.   I trimmed the double frame chipboard, then camouflaged the cut by adding a second frame next to it. I backed the frames with my pictures. Before gluing them to the center of the page, I added a few of the floaties to the pool in order to add to the realistic look of the pool.
I followed the placement of the umbrellas around the pool (they form a diagonal design with the photos), to add a few extra umbrellas and embellishments from the collection.
To create my title, I used pieces from the Sticker Elements, Foam Stickers, and Journaling Bits and Pieces to create my title below the picture frames. I added the cute bathing suit from the Brads pack to the frames as a way to tie the look of the title together.
I love how this turned out, and how easily it came together starting with the beautiful paper.   I hope this inspires you to take a look at the new RETRO SUMMER collection, you are going to love it!!
