MDSM22-Lemonade Stand

I literally whipped this layout up in just over an hour.  I skipped an afternoon at the pool and set up the kiddie pool for the girls instead, while I sat on the deck, drank coffee and 'worked' on it!  That is how easy this layout came together.  I played along with the challenge at MDS Monday.

Along with this sketch, the challenge was issued to use elements from just one kit!  Now, I love to use an assortment of elements from all different kits, so I wasn't too sure how this was going to work, but it was so FUN and EASY!

I used all embellishments, stamps, DSP, and coordinating colors from the Lemonade Stand kit.  I created the title by cropping a couple stamps and layering them with Bermuda Bay underneath the lighter aqua (colour matched) to make the title pop a little more.  The background is the little 'water' embellishment which I simply enlarged to cover the 12x12 area.  A few flags, some more stamps, some recoloured Lemonade Stand stitching, some journalling and I was done!  

I have to say... I am QUITE in LOVE with the finished product!  Let me know what you think of it!

Have a great weekend!
