Here are my projects for the Splash of Summer hop:

The first project is a tag.  It showcases one of the monkeys from the Fun in the Sun Monkey Pattern kit from Little Scraps of Heaven
.  A cute little tag that can be added to a card, or a scrapbook page.

My second project is a set of paper piecings.
This set is PERFECT for celebrating that day outside in the hot sun.
For this set, I used paper piecings from the Pooltime Fun pattern set from Little Scraps of Heaven

My third project is a border that will fit a 12x12 scrapbook page.  It has a pull out tag with a cute dangling charm.  For this layout I used the "You are My Sunshine" pattern over at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

My last project is my BIG one.

I've been wanting to do a nautical themed layout for some time now and I was thinking about this hop I came to the realization that what goes better with sun than the sea and surf.  I chose to use the Under the Sea Collection from Little Scraps of Heaven to make this three dimensional page.  At this point I may do one of two things.  1 - Simply frame it in a 12x12 shadowbox frame and hang in my boys bathroom, or possibly turn it into a two page layout where the pictures are displayed on the right hand page.  Still not sure yet, but in either case I am REALLY happy with how this turned out and am inspired to do more nautical projects too!
