Now let me show you how I made my layout!!

We went to my brother's lake house for my niece Jenna's 12th birthday a couple of weeks ago.  It was the first time we have been to the lake this year as we are a baseball family and have limited free weekends!!

We had fun in the boat, in the water and in the sun!!!

I used my Cameo and images from the Silhouette Online store to create my layout.  I started out with a frame shape for a 12x12 layout, Hello Sunshine title, shovel, pail, sand and a sun.

I cut the Hello Sunshine out of white cardstock.

I cut the frame out of Quick Quotes bright paper (love this paper).

I cut the sun out of yellow patterned paper from Recollections.

My youngest was playing in the sand with Jenna's 2 year old cousin.  They were building sand castles.  I had an empty square and decided to fill it with sand, shovel and pail set from the online store and cut them out of cardstock.

Before I took the tan cardstock off my mat, I inked it to look like sand.

I put the sand castle together and adhered it to my layout.  I did not tuck it behind the window opening as we all know sand is messy!!!

I put the sun in one of the windows along with some of the best photos from our day at the lake!!

Your next stop is PAM!

Here is the entire line up, should you get lost along the way:

I really like this layout and the detail you added to the castle. What I like most is that even though there are several large elements, the pictures are still the star of the page. Not easy to do!
