Cricut Artbooking Endless Summer scrapbook layout.

Hello, friends!

Today's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge called for a water theme. I found the perfect layout on Artbooking! This is another 'stock' layout. However, I changed the overlay to make more sense. It wanted me to use the honeycomb overlay, but a sun overlay seemed a better fit! I love the end result! I also, added a little sparkle to give my layout just that little bit more!

I used Pacific Blue, Crystal Blue, Hollyhock, Buttercup, and Creme Brule cardstock.
I used Mocha Adhesive backed gems to make the coconuts.

Cute layout! I think the sun overlay was a great choice, and the bling you added makes me think of water droplets (perfect for a water theme!) Thanks for sharing!

Awesome LO!!!! I can't wait to get the Artbooking package and play with it. The sun overlay is perfect for those warm summer days photos. You always add just the right bling to make the pages pop.

I hate to see summer end. But, I think fall is my favorite time of the year. This is a great summer layout.
