Ah, bubbly summer layouts! They just make me so happy. These pictures where so bright and colorful, so I wanted to find a paper that went with that feeling. I found this adorable double-sided polka-dotted paper in my scrap stash. (It had no markings on it, so I have no idea who makes it.) The green pattern on the individual circles is the backside.
I originally had everything on a yellow patterned background. But when I started laying out all the papers and the pictures, it all looked so overwhelming. I replaced the yellow background with a white one and this seemed to let the patterns really pop. However, a new problem arose. All the papers seemed to disappear. So, I put a black edge around all of it. It really gave the colors a great base.
