Summer Essentials

Ahhh...summer.  My favorite season!
These photos are from last summer while we were in Germany.
***Echo Park Splash collection***

I was inspired by the latest challenge at Stuck?! Sketches to pull this one together.  I grabbed an older collection from Echo Park and some cute washi...a few sequins...loving the beach umbrella. I made a few changes from the sketch but I think you can still see it pretty easily. 

Seriously, summer is my favorite season. I love wearing shorts and skirts and tank tops and flip-flops. I love hanging out by the pool or, really, any source of water. I love the warmth of the sun on my face. Cold beverages. Sun-kissed skin...but just slightly.  I love eating outside...BBQ's. Ahhh....summer.  Maybe I appreciate it more because summer here is often limited to just 2-3 months...if we're lucky.

This layout makes me dream of summer.  Good thing it's just around the corner!
