Bright colours always appeal to me, and Doodlebug's Sweet Summer collection is full of them! I was especially drawn to the Cabana Stripe paper, as I love rainbow colours. I only used two strips of this though, either side of the layout.
The centre of the layout has a main rectangle of Punch Plaid, then various other small pieces from the collection, and a length of My Love washi tape, (although it's from the So Punny range, the rainbow hearts go so well!) To frame the photo, I cut the borders from two of the 3x4 cards on the Summer Sprinkles paper, cutting the green one in half to stretch behind the photo.
The die-cuts come from the Chit Chat pack - it's full of speech bubbles, words and phrases - the words Summer in the title comes from it. For the word 'smiles' I stuck three small tags together and then used Doodlebug's Abigail alphabet stickers.
The letter stickers showing the date are from Webster's Pages, and I finished off the layout with a mixture of glitter sprinkles and Nuvo Crystal drops.
The Sweet Summer collection is ideal for all your summer photos, full of sunny colours, with cocktails, lollies, palm trees and lots of other summer icons - take a look at it all here :)
