Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying the warm summer days. For my project this month I decided to use bright, vivid colors.
When I think of August, I think of sunny colors - lots of bright blues, bright orange, and lots of time spent in the water with family and friends. Today is my son Matthew's birthday. He is a summer baby and he practically lives in the pool, so I knew that I wanted to do a layout about swimming for him.

Here is the color combo that I got my inspiration from:

I really loved the circle pattern on the quilt, so I decided to use the chipboard wheels from the Fun House collection to replicate the shape.

Here is a sneak peek

and the finished layout

I loved the colors and the patterns in my inspiration pic so much that I decided to use a bold Chevron print from the Fun House collection. I really love how it stands out against the dark blue, and shades of orange.

Here is a list of the Fun House supplies that I used to complete this layout:

You can purchase the Fun House collection

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you enjoy lots of August summery days with your family!
