Color Combos Galore #247 - Caribbean Dreams

It's Week 2 of July at Color Combos Galore, and the colors are divine....

Photo Prompts:
1. Focus on Design - Clustered Elements
2. Focus on Trend - Flair
3. Focus on Technique - Stamp on a tag
4. Focus on Design - White background

I just loved the story board for this week, here is how I interpreted it...

A Nap in the Sun:

Supply List:
 Studio Calico [Sun Drifter] - Patterned Paper (pink, yellow); Polaroid Frame, Die cuts, Chipboard letters
Basic Grey [Serenade] - Patterned Paper (Grid, yellow polka dot); square letter stickers
Elle's Studio [The Sweet Life] - Journaling Tag
American Crafts [Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm] - Flair

For my layout, I took advantage of the flair prompt from photo #2... and used my new flair from the fabulous Gia at The Painted Crane (Thanks, Gia!).  I used the flair in a banner, inspired by the garland in photo #4.

Inspiration Photo #2/Focus On Trend: Flair Buttons
(used flair buttons as banner elements)
Other Inspiration:
Inspiration Photo #2: flag tips (idea: name tag flag strip); polka dots, circle sticker (idea: circle element in vase); Inspiration Photo #4: banner (idea: garland)
