Hi There!

I hope you are doing well. It's rainy and dreary around these parts today. The temps may not get much past 50, with rain forecast off an on throughout the entire weekend. We had some hail yesterday with some stones about dime size. Thankfully, that didn't last too long. I'm sure the weather will rebound soon, so I'm not going to complain.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments you left on the jewelry I made for my friend. I just got off the phone with her and they arrived safe and sound. She loves them, too! She commented that they were quite unique and unlike jewelry you can find in the stores. That made me feel good, too. It sure is nice when your efforts are appreciated.

I have been working on this layout in fits and spurts for about a week now. Early this morning, I got to finish it up and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Thought you might like to see it, too.

I used a template by Cindy Schneider (from Sweet Shoppe Designs) and the Summer Splash kits (from Nitwit Collections). The font is Pea Jane.

I don't know how to layer elements all that well on my own, so I enjoy using templates where the basic layering is done for you. There are a LOT of layers in the layout, but I hope they all work together well to add to a sense of fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
After I finished my last big project, I've sort of been floundering on what to do next. Yesterday I found a project that really inspired me. If I'm lucky, I'll be able to come back later today (or tomorrow) to share. I think you'll like it, too. And that's all I'm gonna say about that.

Have a great day!

Very pretty layout Jeanne! I haven't tried my hand at scrapbooking (yet). You are just so very talented at all you do.

Even the colors of the layout are refreshing! Great layout - the photos are adorable, too!

I'm looking forward to what you've got up your sleeve next?!

Why do I feel like I miss you? It's kind of silly all things considered. Nevertheless, I do!

Your layout is fantastic. I love all the bright colors, and the subject matter could not be cuter.

We seem to be experiencing the same weather, and I've been complaining about it more than I should. Like it does any good. LOL.

Can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve to show us next. You WOW me every time!

Take care, sweet friend! Hugs!!

What a fabulous layout Jeanne. The bright colors just scream summer and water fun.

You've got me intrigued as to what your next project will be. :)

Beautiful page Jeanne, I am impressed! The colors are gorgeous!
I bet your friend was happy with her jewelry, that was gorgeous! I need to go back and look at that link. That would be something neat for the girls (or myself for that matter)
Thanks for the proof reading, I can't believe I missed that :) Don't ever stop coming to my blog, I would be up a creek with no paddle! :)

AWESOME layout, Jeanne. Templates are my best friend these days! I love the colors in this kit, they capture the fun spirit of the girls playing. Great job!
