Lori Whitlock's Summer Blog Hop

 
Welcome!  You should be arriving here from Corri's blog.  If you are just jumping in you can see all the inspiring projects by starting out HERE


I thought today I would share a sunny layout I created using Lori's "A Perfect Summer" collection which she created for Echo Park.  After getting my basic photo arrangement planned out, my real jumping off point came from the adorable little journaling card found in the collection kit.  I thought it would be fun to mimic the clothesline look as a sort of swimsuit banner in my top, right-hand corner using Lori's matching cutting files.



For my title, I utilized one of her many great summer titles available in her shop.  I love being able to customize these in any color scheme to match the project you're working on!  :)



To create my layout I used the following cutting files which can be found in Lori's shop and also in the Silhouette Store:

'clothesline' Swim Suits (Silhouette Store only)
'the perfect summer day' phrase
Banner Flag Set

Lori Whitlock
Brigit Mann
Christine Ousley
Corri Garza
Mendi Yoshikawa (you are here)
Traci Penrod
Chrissy Guido
Haley Ney
Kim Lund
Lisa Bell

Thanks so much for hopping by.  Your next stop will be Traci's blog.  :)
