a place for summer snapshots...

THIS WAS so much fun! I really made an effort to think outside the box a bit and try new layout ideas, new places to use things I was already familiar with. There are so many times I will look at someone else' work and think to myself, WOW! I never thought of that!" There is no reason why that cannot be me and YOU. Just sit down with the idea that whatever you are working on can be done differently, with a different style, layout, idea, just do even one little thing a bit different.

 I confess, the cover is not really anything new...
 This page is! Titles are always, always, hard for me. But this book is about ideas, so, use an IDEA for your title!
 This page has a fun new twist  (for me anyway) an envelope close
at the end of the pocket... held shut with a clip! FUN!
 More ideas... and this is all about summer, which is, a PLEASURE!
 More ideas, thoughts transformed into a layout, what is the best
thing to do in summer???? LAUGH!
And the end result should always be...good times, of course!
This should be easy to achieve, considering we have warm (OK, here it is blazing hot...another sun-shiney week of 111, 112 + temps) weather, a sparkling pool in the back yard, and kids running, whooping, and playing all day. At least for a couple more weeks...

God Bless!
