Pool Time: Scrap & Play Challenge #3

This months challenge on the Scrap & Play blog is a bingo challenge where we can choose any three items to use in our layout so long as they are in a line horizontally, vertically or diagonally
I decided to opt for the first column on the left using fibre in the form of twine, floral patterned paper & a punch. This is also my first layout using the summery kit Gemma had sent me. 
Bright, summery colours call for summery photos. This photo of JoJo and myself was taken last year when we had a pool day at mother in laws employers home. 

The background paper is from Studio Calico Sun Drifter i recieved in a kit last year. It makes and ideal background paper and the subtle ombr√© effect of the grid from red to yellow match the papers from Gemma's kit perfectly. I used a neglected X-Cut large scallop punch to make a border for the top and bottom of the page. The title is made using American Crafts Poolside (perfect for the layout) Thickers. 
This is layout 25/30
