2012 MMDT August Challenge #1-theme: Summer Stuff

August Photo Challenge #1: Summer Stuff

Take photos of the things that say "SUMMER" to you.



I tried to keep this quick and simple as I've been under the weather the past week and kept fretting about an idea for the challenge, I finally thought back to our Winter Challenge in January and that really helped me. 

We usually have some very uneventful summers. There are a few highlights that have become family traditions, things we have all enjoyed doing. Here are a few of the things I think of when I think about summer. 

The County Fair, the Highland Games, corn fields, fireworks, road trips, camping, kayaking, hot air balloons,  butterflies and ice cream! 



I have used 'Storm' 12x12 Mosaic Moments Grid paper on which to build this layout. The paper tiles I have used as mats and fillers are Navy, Red, Tangelo Blast and Pineapple Bliss.

My title comes from a song that I couldn't get out my head while planning the layout.

I used Mosaic Moments pattern #56...

 

 PP59

 

 

and also #58. I soon found my self unhappy with how things were developing with # 58, so I just pushed things around and fiddled until I had something that was visually pleasing, but not pattern #58, I'll try that another day! 



I hope you all are enjoying your summer...I can't believe how quickly it is passing.

Thanks for stopping by...

Andrea - always enjoy your pages. I like both versions although the second one is more appealing to the eye. Great photos! Hope you are feeling better.

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well - hope you are better now. You still have your flair, even when you're down!

Your pages are always a visual treat Andrea. Love the title too.

Even when you are under the weather, your layouts are great!! The 1" square tiles balance the hot air balloon perfectly and center title is great. Hope you are feeling better!

I love the color combos you used on this design. The tiles really complement your photos. Your title is wonderful. Hope you are feeling better!

What do you mean that your summers are "uneventful?" Your layout says otherwise. The colors are wonderful, and I especially like the title. I wasn't thinking of music--I was just trying to survive the water disaster in my basement, and that could happen in ANY season! Hope you're feeling much better.
