Summer Days

The first Design Team challenge for August was a photo challenge. I needed to feature pictures that meant summer to me.

Even though the calendar says it is the first of August, the weather here in Western Washington sure has not felt summerish to me so far this season. As a family, we have been doing all sorts of random things and I have collected random pictures to go along with those random events. That evolved into my design of "Summer Days".

Bahama Blue grid paper was my background of choice, since I was yearning for blue skies as I was putting my work together.Since my page is picture heavy, I decided to keep the rest of elements simple with 1" tiles I punched out of card stock and paper. I created my title by stamping the letters and punching them out with a 1" circle punch and pop dotting them on the patterned paper tiles.

I used the Clearly Summer and Clearly Calendar stamp sets from to finish off my page.

Love the choice of bahama blue paper and the way you created the title. As Deborah says, bare feet and painted toes says summer to me too!

I found the jello recipe on a wonderful blog,"Our Best Bites". I have gotten a number of delicious new recipes from the blog, including my new favorite snickernoodle recipe and a really good version of chocolate chip cookies. Here is the link to the layered jello recipe:

Layered Jello sounds yummy! I love the Easter Island planter - too fun. Summer should be random right? Love it. :)

I, too, am not familiar with layered Jello squares. How do you do that? I am sure I have some grandchildren who would love them. The layout is very attractive. So many fun ideas. I especially like the way you created the title. The blue paper is very effective. Good job!

Layered jello! What a lot of work, but so delicious! Just like the work you did on your title! The Bahama Blue makes it really pop too. Sounds like we could use some of your weather out here, very dry and HOT!

The photo in the top left corner is my 4th of July dessert---layered jello squares! Aren't they cool looking. I took them to a neighborhood BBQ. All the kids gobbled them up in no time flat.

Great job! Looks like summer to me. I would like to know what those tiles are too?
