A Bright Summer Kit

Hi everyone, today I have an artsy fun digital scrapbooking & photobook kit I hope will give you some smiles. It's full of pops of bright summer colors paired with a black and white base.

It has painted accents and is complimented by black and white to make the colors really stand out in the kit or your photos. Some of my favorite pieces are the frames with the cast shadows, the texty overlay and the painted speech bubbles. Here's more of what is included in this set....

All the colors in this photo were desaturated except the red/magenta giving focus to the sweet little girl. The poem is called "As I Watch You Grow" by Kay Theese.

"As I Watch You Grow"
 As I Watch You Grow Do you know how much you mean to me? As you grow into what you will be. You came from within, from just beneath my heart. It's there you'll always be, though your own life will now start.

You're growing so fast it sends me awhirl, With misty eyes I ask, Where's my little girl? I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair, But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care. The next few years will so quickly fly, With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry. As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know, You'll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.

You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear, For all you dreams and goals sit before you very near. With God's love in your heart and the world by its tail, You'll always be my winner, and victory will prevail. For you this poem was written, with help from above, To tell you in a rhythm of your Mother's heartfelt love!

Use angles to your advantage by also adding borders and text in the same direction for an interesting touch to your layouts.

I am so excited to get a chance to scrap about my niece Emily's art. I am really proud of her. In this layout I used the painted blocks as masks for her Manga drawings and used the frames on top to highlight the pieces.

I thought this photo by 15 yr old photgrapher Мария Ткачук was so funny. If you have a brother, you have probably been here before. It makes me smile.

A fun idea is to make a title within a title. The trick is finding one that will work! "Arial" is highlighted within the "A Real California Girl". Start with a name and then find words with those letters.

Gold accents are "hot hot hot right now, I really love it with black and white and just one pop of pink.

Well my friends, that is all for today, I'll be posting about the new ScrapSimple Club that just came out soon. If you want a jump start on what that is all about, you can visit the Scrap Girls Club Page to get a preview of a very fun DYI Club.
