Good Morning!

Mary-Ann Maldonado here this morning, trying to get out of the rainy day blues with a fun, fresh summer layout.  What else would I used but, Hello Summer?!!!  Right?

I started with this fun photo of my silly cross eyed boy and his handsome daddy.  I used a FREE cut file from Paper Issues, to cut the palms and my crazy long legged flamingo.  I did have to stretch the palms a little bit to make them a bit longer.


Here is a close up of the palms and pretty florals.



I also cut another floral club, layering the flower with a lighter color to bring out the watercolor look of the flowers above.

My intent was to have my title say ‘Stay Cool In The Pool’ but the Soak Up The Sun ephemera was calling my name!

In the pool

I hope you have been inspired to get out those summer photos on a gloomy day to bring you out of the blues.
