I’m usually good at walking down an aisle at the scrapbook store or browsing online and not buying something, but I have a weakness for anything to do with warm weather. Yes, I have a lot of pictures featuring things that can be done in warm weather, but you know it’s a problem when your friends start calling you out on your purchases of all things sun-related.
I wandered the Scrapjazz gallery to find some inspiration by using the search word “sun” and found a lot of great inspiration for my own sun layouts.
Now that I’d been inspired, I decided to dig out some of my sun-themed paper and make a layout. I found some paper I had bought that was the same as what Susan used in hers. It wasn’t on purpose, but her layout led me right to the perfect paper in my stash. It’s from Fancy Pant’s Summer Soiree collection. She also added a little glitter to hers, and since shiny things remind me of the summer sun, I added some Stickles to the page on top of one of the printed suns and the word “Splash” in the bottom left corner.
I took the three-dimensional design from DBurns to make my waves pop off the page. The photos I used were inspired by the photo on Suzanne’s layout. I then found another page from the Summer Soiree line that reminded me of Lilnefie’s layout and used it as a background for my wave page.
Whether you’re scrapbooking a trip to the beach or someone who makes you smile, using some inspiration from the sun will really brighten up your page.
