Clean and Simple with a bird

Summer is here! One day it was cool the next it was a scorcher! It came like a
theif in the night, literally! We cool off in the summer by splashing in the
pool, throwing water ballons and eating fresh fruit. Yep thats right. Fresh
watermelon and strawberries are the best.

I took this picture of my cousin not to long ago. I couldnt wait to scrap it. To
me it screams summer. Her beautiful golden hair and that bright red strawberry.
Perfect summer photo.
I used GCD's Melody ross line homespun chic-applique. I cut out the sweet birds
and flowers to add to my white cardstock. I also punched scalloped circles to go
under my title.

I love adding texture and dimension to my pages. I achieved the dimension by pop
dotting the flowers and bird. The sewing around the page and under the title
adds the texture I love.

The Layered frames also from Homespun adds even more depth to the layout. They
are simply beautiful and set off the picture nicely.

Homespun Chic is so feminine and bright. It works for every season.
Make sure to stay cool and try some nice cool fruit to kick off the summer.
