Pool Party For One - Lasting Memories #252

Hello and welcome to my blog! I hope you all are having a great day!

There's a new challenge up over on the Lasting Memories blog today. This week we are challenging you to add a cluster to your layout.

I will admit that I love clusters, but I have a hard time making them look the way that I want them to. It's a work in progress, and I'm sure that one day the will get easier for me!

Supplies used - Patterned Paper - blue check - Doodlebug Designs - Sunkissed collection, blue dot - The Paper Studio, blue grid - Echo Park - Creative Agenda, wood grain - Echo Park - Summer Bliss collection, pink dot - Echo Park - Splendid Sunshine collection, multi colored stripe - Best of Pebbles paper pad, Ephemera pack - Echo Park - I Love Sunshine, Brads - Echo Park, Summer Bliss, tokens - Doodlebug Designs, baker's twine - Close To My Heart, Alphabet stickers - Thickers - "Pool Party", Echo Park - Hello Summer - "For One".

I actually made a double page layout this week! I used to only make double page layouts, but lately have gotten away from it. It was fun to work with more photos and a bigger space for a change! These photos are of Ada after we'd been at the zoo most of the day. She was ready to come to Nana and Pops' house and get in her little pool!

I added a couple of clusters to my layout.

I used to not buy a lot of the embellishments/ephemera packs that went along with a collection, but they make it really easy to make these cute little clusters.
I used this double page sketch from the July 2015 PageMaps:
I loved this double page sketch the minute I saw it and knew I would be using it soon. In fact, there were a lot of sketches from this month that I hope to get around to using. If you haven't checked them out already, you can see them all here.
Head on over to the Lasting Memories blog and see the rest of the design team's creations. You have until July 31st to link up to any or all of the challenges for a chance to win this paper pack from me:
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
