Summer Album

I recently did a swap with an online friend with a Summertime theme. Here is the album I made for Krista. It uses a lot of Cricut: A Child's Year, Paper Dolls, Life's a Beach, Sweethearts. All the Paper is from My Mind's Eye.
My album had a little poem I made up to go along with the pages.
From the Park
To the Beach
Summertime is full of treats
But no matter how far you roam.
There's no place like home!

I had an idea for how I wanted the sun to look, but couldn't find a Cricut cut that fit, so I made my own pattern and cut it by hand.

From the Park. Krista has 3 children, 2 girls and a boy, so I though this cut from A Child's Year was perfect. If you look closely, you can see where my 2 yr old signed it. lol

To the Beach
I love this beach page. It's actually the first one I did because the idea started the book. Another cut from A Child's Year.

The surfboard tags and the little card are both from Life's a Beach. I used glimmer mist on the card. I used a pretty heavy hand with it to make it look "sandy" and sparkly. :)

Summertime is full of treats
I love the colors of these pages. The girl is cut from A Child's Year. The drink from Life's a Beach. I used glossy accents on the straw and fruit to give them a more realistic look.

I'm having a brain freeze(haha)on what cartridge I cut the ice cream cones from. Let me know if you recognize them before my brain thaws.

But no matter how far you roam....
The car is cut from Paper Dolls, and the girl on the scooter is from Sweethearts.

There's no place like home!
Fence is from Paper Dolls.
