Summer Nails Layout And Tutorial

Hello friends! Today I am sharing another layout that I created with the June Sketch at My Creative Sketches.

This was created with the awesome June Creative Kit for My Creative Scrapbook.

 I thought I would share a written tutorial with full instructions on how I created this layout. Flamingos are trendy for summer and last year, I got my nails and toes done with painted flamingos at my local nail salon. Summer is to be celebrated. Don't you think?
