A Sunny Day

I want to share a layout I made for a contest over at Serendipity Scrapbooks. It was to create a shaped layout, any shape you wanted. I've seen lots of really fun suns on layouts and decided to make my own. I took a 12x12 piece of cardstock and just freehand cut out a sun shape. I made sure to leave enough room for my one photo and then just cut away!!


I also had to have some stitching, so I stitched over all the sun's rays. I added some clouds and layered them with popdots and stickles!



I used some scraps of Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper from a Color Me Daisy kit for the matting and details. I had so much fun making this layout. I remember the day that photo was taken was such a beautiful day and everyone was in the pool alll day long. Ah...I miss summer already!!

Thanks for stopping by!

OMG Mara, that cut out sun is freakin' awesome. At first I thought, "How did she get PP to look like rocks and grass?" LOL Then I saw that it wasn't PP but your LO had holes! So, SO cool. You are a clever chickie!
