A Note from Christine
I have several layouts over the years that depict sun rays (both digital and paper). To me it is the perfect symbol of summer and I love creating the sun rays. For this layout, I layered washi tape horizontally and vertically across a sheet of white cardstock. Then I cut out the big circle from the layers of tape to create the main part of my sun.

I made a list of my summer top ten: boogie boarding at the beach, after dinner walks, concert under the stars, lunch on the Coronado sun deck, reading awesome books on the chaise lounge outside, watch sunset from gliderport, look at super-moon, rollerblading after work, homemade ice cream, staycation in SD.

July Fun Fact
I think of July as the "sandwich month" of summer. June is the start and August is the end. July doesn't seem as fun, but I'm determined to make it fun this year!
