"Here Comes Summer" Challenge for Exploring Cricut and More!

Good morning everyone! Today is the beginning of a new challenge at Exploring Cricut and More!
With the warm weather upon us and the days getting longer it is time to welcome summer!
It sure feels like summer here in northern California.

Challenge:  “Here Comes Summer” make card, layout, or papercraft celebrating summer and must include the colors red and blue!!
I was inspired to do some "decorating" in the backyard. We are really enjoying our backyard including the pool and I have some baskets that hold misc items and thought it would be fun to "dress" them up a bit.

I started with some little chalkboards I picked up at Michaels a while back and some vinyl scraps. (It's definitely time to replenish my vinyl supplies) The baskets are also from Michaels

I pulled out my summery cartridges and tried to find some images that would work.

Towels cut from the Savory Lite cartridge at 2.25" I added the shell layer from the Life's a Beach cartridge cut at .75"
"Friends" cut from the Life's a Beach cartridge at 2.0"
Life Preserver cut from the Splish Splash Lite Cartridge cut at 3.0"
The words are written with chalk for now, but I am thinking some vinyl letters would be a good idea.

Thank you for stopping by today and don't forget to visitExploring Cricut and More! for some wonderful inspiration and to enter our challenge!
