Sometimes, using the paper to make your layout, is the way to go. "soak up the sun", is part of the paper pack. I added some glitter glue to the inside of the letters (can't really see it here), to add some dimension. I absolutely LOVE these pictures I took from 2 summer's ago. Remember....it is never to late to scrapbook pictures. So get those pictures out, from years ago, and scrap them.
