Make A Splash using the Slice of Summer Collection

Right now it is a mere 98 degrees here in Minnesota.  It’s not always cold here.  We do get the heat occasionally, and with that comes the humidity, and then the “feels like” temperature goes up even more.

With there being 10,000 lakes here usually the place to cool off is in the lake.  However, for Advisor Beth Thomander and her family of Nova Scotia Canada, cooling off means a jump in the pool.  That just sounds refreshing right about now.

How do you beat the heat?

Beth was gracious enough to let me use these photos when creating this layout.  Isn’t her son a cutie?  …and Beth—-she is just a cutie herself.  These photos were perfect for the layout idea I had in mind.  My favorite was layering the wave border stickers to make them look dimensional, and the Scallop Burst Border Punch just reminds me of bright beautiful bursts of sunshine!

Take a peek……
