Let's Swim with Neva!

Good morning Quick Quotes aficionados, summer is coming!

Neva here to share a layout using Spring Showers. Originally, I planned to use 103 for both the dots and argyle pattern, but the stripes of 101 really popped against the brick red coloring of the pool deck in the photos.
  • Both Spring Showers 101 and 103 are trimmed to 10 ½” squares, and 2” are trimmed from each.
  • The saying on the left is trimmed from the 12” x 12” Far and Away Quotes & Phrases.
  •  A color stripe on the right is trimmed from Navigator 105, it just happens to be very close in color. It's great when collections can be mixed and matched.
  • The journaling strips are cut from Spring Showers 102.
  • All sections are inked with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Capri Blue.
  • The sections are adhered together on matching cardstock.
  • The decorative loops are die cut from Spring Showers 104.
    • A little secret here, I accidentally die cut the loops while working on another layout and saved it, happily discovering it was great for this layout
  • The title is die cut from Spring Showers 104.
I found that the Earth Wind Fire Chipboard Die Cuts are a great match; not only in color but also complement the fun theme of the layout. The close-up also shows the Far and Away 500, Quotes and Phrases.
A close-up that shows the matching stripe from Navigator 105 and another Chipboard Die Cut.
The white wash of Spring Showers 102 is great for journaling. 
The pop of color from Spring Showers 104 is perfect for the title of this layout. It also adds a visual interest of triangle of color between the two sides of the double page layout.
I enjoy how the elements of several collections can work together for a great layout.
