Make It Monday #90 At The Memory Nest

Hello, everyone! Happy Monday to you!  I hope that you had a good weekend and are ready for the new week! We had a busy one! The pool is finally up and going, so a lot of our time was spent doing that, then we had a birthday party for my great nephew who turned 6, and more time actually spent in the pool since we are having some of our hottest days yet!

Today is Make It Monday #90 over at The Memory Nest, and we have a fun sketch for you to work with! Leslie has created a great sketch with lots of possibilities!

I guess since we have been working on getting the pool ready, it got me in the mood to scrap some old pool photos of Shane! I had an old My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called "Summer Splash" that was mostly used up, but I did have enough of it left to make this layout. I love the blues, greens, reds, and yellows in this paper pad. I'm kind of sad that it is all gone now, but I'm sure I can find something to take its place.

I cut the title out with my Lawn Fawn "Cole's ABC's" die set and used some stamps from my June Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit that I had just received in the mail. The stamp set in this month's kit was perfect for this layout.  I felt like it needed something more, so I tried sprinkling some sequins around the page, but in the end, I liked it better just plain.

Be sure to stop by The Memory Nest to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. I hope you can find some time to play along with this sketch!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!

  3. What a cool layout and the title is fantastic :) Sweet picture too

  4. LOVE the sketch- -I think I'll save it-- and using older pics of the kids is so much fun! The way Shane is looking back at the camera is 100% photogenic. Great job layering everything! Those small patterns are awesome. (PS Our pool goes up next weekend... Noah will be in HEAVEN! Floating in water is his fave thing ever.) :)
