Summer Blog Hop GSS

Pin It
Welcome to our Summer Blog Hop with the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!
This weekend we will be featuring projects all about Summer!
We hope you enjoy all of the great work this Design Team has done and find some summer inspiration. Happy Summer!
If you came from the fabulous Gaby then you are in the right spot!
Here is the first of my fun Summer Projects, Live to Swim. For this layout I used patterned paper I already had in my stash along with some diecuts (lifeguard chair and lifesaving ring) that I recieved in a die cut swap. Of course I used some goodies from Ginger Snap Scraps too!!
Supplies from Ginger Snap Scraps:

Note: I love to use Copics to color and alter my chipboard letters and elements. So much easier than pulling out the paint. And with so many colors to chose from the sky is the limit!!

Your next stop on the hop is my awesome crafty friend Barb!
We hope you enjoy our Summer Blog Hop!
