Window to my World

Hi all my crafty friends!  The weeks just seem to zoom by me and before I know it, it's Monday again. lol  And if it is Monday then it is time for another BBTB2 challenge!!! Yay!  I hosted our challenge this week, it was my first with BBTB2 and I had a blast doing it.  I chose "Window to my World" theme.  You could do any kind of project, using any cart of your choice as long as it had the window theme.  I did a layout about what the pool means to me in the summer.  I used Opposites Attract for my title along with Billionaire.  My window came from Christmas solution car.  I inked it with Tim Holtz distress inks, Broken China, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo and my guy on the towel came from Pack Your Bags. I colored my little fella with Spectrum Noir markers cause I didn't have any flesh paper, I also gave him a "farmers tan" just like my hubby has. lol  I also made him into my journaling spot by welding two fella's together.  My paper is from DCWV but can't remember which stack. Sorry!!  I used blues and yellows because blue reminds me of the water and yellows reminds me of the sun.    I hope you enjoy my layout.  You will find lots of inspiration from my design team sisters on BBTB2 and I hope that you will join us in this theme.  Just link up your project and as always you have two weeks to do so!

Brenda-what a wonderful theme you picked for us this week. I love your layout and especially the silly farmer's tan on your sun basking guy. It made me giggle. How do you manage to spend so much time out in the sun with your lupus? We are sitting here on the shore of the Lake Huron and I rarely go out to the sandy beach because I get ill when I spend time in the sun because of my lupus. I prefer enjoying the view from under the awning of my camper and I'm grateful we have a good campsite now with a view of the lake.
