Hello everyone!
It’s Anna here with my first project created with “Poolside” collection. When I saw it for the first time, I loved how different it was from other summer / pool themed collections. This retro feel is really unique and so fun to create with. I love the whimsical lifebuoys in a shapes of unicorn, giraffe and flamingo. 
For my first layout I created a little mixed media background using blue watercolors and crayons.

I paired it with a strip of “Pooling around” paper. Those little fishes are so cute. I also cut out some waves shapes from the same paper. Little squares from “Let’s flamingle” paper look so good peeking from behind the strip.

Picture of my daughter Maja playing in the pool is so adrobale and easy to scrap. She was splashing water all around and I managed to capture this moment. That’s why I decided to use “Splish splash” title. I made it using elements from chipboard stickers set.

Swimming children from ephemera pack are so fun and I had to add few of them on my page. I like how those elements compose with my waves. I thought adding splashes and drops of water will be a great idea with this title. I searched for them in ephemera pack and puffy stickers and placed them on my page.

I finished my page by adding splashy paper clip. I just love those elmbellishments and I wanted to hoard them but well… they were made to shine on the pages. I an happy how this page turned out. Scrapping summer photos is always my favorite and I can’t wait for the upcoming summer to grab my camera and snap some pictures. There will be some pool photos for sure.
