Week 371: POOL

There's a bit of a heat wave going on in some parts of the country this week and since most pools are currently closed, let's fill the gallery with some pool themed goodness!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!  Have you seen their brand new online store yet?  Their main, outlet and digital stores are combined into one and, right now, you can find extra savings using the current coupons!

Let's see what the design team & our guest designer created for inspiration to get us started!
