It's really cute, but I can't see myself ever actually doing a page like this. I think Michelle is right, I think incorporating poolside or ice cream might have made it have a better feel.

What do you like about this page? I like the colors (luv the brights) and overall layout of page. Palm tree embellie is super cute.

What do you dislike about this page? I to don't feel the pic matches the page, cute pic though.

Any other comments. I do like the page & will probably lift it.

What do you like about this page? I love the colors and the palm tree embellie! I also love the stitching, banners and how they did the title and journaling!
What do you dislike about this page? Not really anything I don't like.
Any other comments? I know it is a page about being pool side, but I can totally see where they pulled the inspiration for the colors and the palm tree from the towel or chair behind the kid. I think it all goes together okay. Totally want to scrap lift this page!

I completely missed that it was a palm tree on that towel or chair in the pic. It goes together much easier now for me.

What do you like about this page?
So many things! The crimped paper for the tree trunk, the distressing on the ribbon peices, the color combo, the stitching...
What do you dislike about this page?
The only thing I can pick apart about it is I'm not a fan of journaling on a pattern, so I would have opted for plain yellow paper there.
Any other comments?
Idon't think so!

I post my thoughts before reading others, otherwise you guys will influence my thoughts!

But I agree with Tamara, I think they pulled the color scheme from the picture and it totally works for me and goes together nicely. Plus its a summertime pictures and it looks lke a summery page to me! I don't always take the event from the picture but moreso the colors. I didn't even notice there was a palm tree in the background till Becky said it!

What do you like about this page? I REALLY like this page. There is alot of detail but not to much going on.

What do you dislike about this page? I was gonna say nothing but then Janessa made the comment about journalling on pattern paper now that sticks out at me.

Any other comments? I think it totally goes together there is a palm tree on the towel and I think relaxing when I think palm tree. Also the patterned background paper reminds me of water being splashed.

I don't like the page, I have come back and looked at it several times before commenting. Usually when I don't like a page I can tear it apparent. But there really isn't anything wrong with it. I might not like the Palm tree but that doesn't mean it isn't a good embellished for the page. The colors match and look good together, but I still don't like them. I don't like the picture either.

All that and I like the base sketch, I am setting up to do this as a page this month. I would have much rather this been a sketchy Saturday or a fast scrap Friday.

I can't wait to see your take on the page Nicole! It is also a page that I want to lift. I had a really hard time deciding whether to use it as a Thursday thoughts page or a Fast scrap Friday page as it worked well for both.

For me it's the concept that doesn't come together, not the colors or embellishment. I totally get that. The picture and colors actually do go really well together.
