Feelin' hot-hot-hot

It's 60 degrees in some places. Ninety in others. Dry in spots, humid in others. I know a lot of you are experiencing what I am - major heat! Thank heavens for air conditioning. Sometimes that's the only way to battle scorching weather. And isn't funny that how hot that heat really feels depends on where you are? Ninety-five at the beach on the sand sure doesn't feel as bad as ninety-five in the city or ninety-five while mowing the lawn! :)

Some lucky ducks have the perfect summertime solution... lounging by the pool. It is perfect. Taking in the sun and fun, and when you get too hot, just take a dip in the pool.

Cathy Pascual, a ScrapNfonts design team member, created this colorful summer layout about just that. Lounging by the pool. I love how she washed out that black and white photo as the background in the bottom half of the layout. And that title font! So cute.

She used:

CK Chloe (journaling)
LDJ Cool Cat (Title)
DB Hawaiian Glyphs (waves in title)

Check out the design team gallery for more information on the digital elements Cathy used for this very creative layout.

You can tell it's Summer when..

people stop updating their blogs! :)

There is so much going on. Vacations. Swimming. Relaxing. SCRAPPING?

I know there are less posts on the scrappy message boards I frequent and less uploads into galleries right now. I know a few people who are scrapping though and it sure is a great time for a crop.

One of the ScrapNfonts designers - Andrea Gomoll - has shared this terrific layout celebrating summer road trips. Here's what's SUPER cool about this layout. See those cute bursts on the background paper? Well, she actually used a font to create that background.

Here are links to the fonts she used just in case you like 'em as much as I do. :)

DB Brush Bursts
LDJ Forever Friends
LDJ Clarissa Boxed

So... what are you doing this summer?
