Summer Splash

Here is contest # 2 for SENSE-ational Summer contest at 'Soul Scrappers'

The SIGHTS of summer are different for everyone. Some think of the beach or a lake or big vacations. Others may think of bbq's, the tennis or cricket. Here is a list of more sights during summer......lightening storm, beach volley ball, convertibles with the top down, going to soccer camps, wearing summer clothing like dresses, shorts, bathers and thongs.

So for this challenge please scrap a Summer SIGHT that appeals to you.

Hand cutting is one of my favourite ways to incorporate texture into a layout! It is very easy, and the only tool you need is a pair of scissors and a little patience to make your layout more dimensional.

Here are your details:
THEME: What SIGHT(s) mean SUMMERTIME to you? Created layout must be about the SIGHTS of  SUMMER!

TECHNIQUE: Handcutting must be present on your layout.

One of the sights of summer that I vivedly remember is my two boys Adam and Jarred splashing around in their Nan and Pa's above ground pool back in 1992. Everytime we visited through summer they had to go in to cool off! I used fussy cutting on my layout in three spots, the flowers, the pin wheels and the title is also cut out
