This is a photo of my daughter chillin at the pool. I loved the bright colors of the photo so I used bright colors in my papers and embellishments too. I used a black background to make all the colors pop! The papers are Junkitz, the chipboard letters are Heidi Swapp, the brads are Making Memories and the Flower and cardstock stickers are Doodlebug. The stitching is all done with a white Sharpie paint pen.
