Summer will be here soon ....

This swimming pool set by Avery Elle is just the cutest !!  I saw this video done by Julie Ebersole and you can see it here to show how she makes the actual rafts "float" around. It's surprisingly pretty easy if you follow how she did it. All stamps by Avery Elle. I printed the "pool" paper from online and then printed it off from my computer.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Create and Make - Anything Goes #21
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, Optional Blue
Dragonfly Dreams - Here Come the Girls
Pile It On - Sports/Hobbies
Make My Monday - Hint of Summer
