Pool Party + Free Printables

We just moved into a home with a pool, so I decided to take advantage of that and host a pool party!

Check out my Party board on Pinterest for a lot more ideas. These are the ones I used. Some are taken from Pinterest, and some are variations, and some are my own ideas.

There are printables at the end of this post. They are free, and you're welcome to share, but if you share, please share the link to this post rather than the link to the actual file.

Leralynn Dress from Blank Slate Patterns

I helped to test the new Leralynn Dress from Blank Slate patterns. It's a loose shift dress with a couple of different options. I was involved in the first round of testing, and there were a few issues that were later worked out, so make sure you check out other testers' versions to see what the final version looks like!

The Most Beautiful Things Free Printable

A little while ago, I purchased a bundle from The Hungry Jpeg, and I've been using it to create some printables. Go here for my set of free greeting cards! What I love about purchases through their site is that usually the license is good for personal and commercial use. Most of the things I find you have to pay extra for commercial use. And they do bundles.

Also, make sure you download the 43 free fonts bundle! You can find it under the bundle heading on their website. But it only lasts for a couple of weeks, so hurry and grab it.

I made this because my husband really liked the saying, but I didn't really like the original. It was hanging up in our house, and it had a hunter green frame and this:

Looks a lot like something my mom would have made in the late 80s. So it got a facelift. So did the frame. I painted it with Sherwin Williams Swiss Coffee. And if you want, you can print it out and frame it too.

Go here to download the printable. Please, share the link to this post, not the link to the file!

 I have been eyeing the Lavish line of fabric by Katarina Rocella for months, and when I saw it at Raspberry Creek Fabric, I grabbed two prints to make my girls some dresses.
