Friday Freebie – Summer Fun template

July 18, 2008 Sarah Coggins

This week I went back a year to the first full digital layout I created:

I loved the bright blue of the water & wanted to make it a focal point. So, I kept the design simple – filling it with photos – then adding a couple embellishments. The template contains all the layers to recreate this design except for the sun & “summer fun” layers. Those are from free digital kits available at Two Peas in a Bucket.

Supplies: sunbrush from Kate Teague’s free Vacation Holiday kit; “summer fun” rub-on from Rhonna Farrer’s free “live laugh love” June 2006 kit; Berhard Modern Std and Adobe Caslon Pro fonts.
