More Summer Fun with the BOAF July Kit

I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer so far, and taking lots of great photos! Then you can use them with this fun July Kit from BOAF. For this first page I was inspired by this photo and challenge.

I started with the kraft cardstock from Bazzill and misted it with 3 different mists, including the cornflower chalkboard Glimmer Mist that I got as an extra with the April Kit. I also misted the beautiful burlap flowers by Pink Paislee.

The We R Memory Keepers patterned papers that I used can by bought here.I cut and rolled the chevron paper to create a frame for this page. The starfish and seagulls were cut with my Cricut using the Life is a Beach cartridge. I stamped and embossed the title. I finished it up with the chipboard shell stickers from Bo Bunny that you can buy with the extras.

For this next page I wanted to use the bright and fun colors that are in the kit.  I just love this photo that I scrapped of my brother and his son!

As much as I love all of the cardstock that comes with the kit, including all of the extras, I had to use my own blue cardstock for the background because I wanted to mimic the water in the pool. The patterned papers are Bo Bunny's "Key Lime" collection. The chipboard sun that comes in the main kit was painted first, before adding some yellow stickles to it.

Under the sun I used my Tim Holtz Mixed Media stamp with some paints to create the dots. Then I used bubble wrap for the rest, making this my entry for the Scrap for Help challenge this month. The splashes were cut from the Bo bunny pp.

I masked part of my title with Distress Inks, and used the Bo Bunny chipboard "swim" letters for the rest. I finished this page off by gluing some of the Queen and Co. twine that came in the kit, across my page.
Thanks so much for looking!
