this weekend, i had a creative marathon. and i loved every minute of it. it's been a long time since i have scrapped just for fun. meaning, no deadline, no assignment, no specific requirements. just scrapping for fun, with whatever i wanted to use. actually, i checked my blog and the last time i had a "just because" layout, was back in the beginning of may. it was time. and for once, i had a free weekend with nothing big going on. so i devoted saturday and sunday to creating. i came out of it with 9 layout (5 of which are totally done, and 4 are almost done), 1 card, and 5 projects (4 of which WERE assignments). here's one of those layouts.
i had the new boardwalk collection from little yellow bicycle sitting out, waiting for me to find the time to create with it. i was digging around for photos, and came across these ones of haley from last summer that were perfect. this collection is definately geared toward the beach and the sand a bit more than regular water play. but there are so many great pieces to choose from, that you can still make a fun water page with it.
these canvas border stickers are so cool. the large red circle border is the one that started this whole page. i liked that it pulled out haley's red shirt. but i had to use the wave border too. even though there were no waves on the slip-n-slide. it still meant water to me. lol! and how fun is that puffy "photo op" accent sticker. so cute.
i love this sun decorative edged paper. at first, i was going to use yellow cardstock on the top of the layout. but then i saw the sun paper, and it was perfect. i added some fun embossed cardstock sticker clouds at the last minute. i used my making memories slice and the summer design card to cut the word "refreshing" from one of the red pattern papers, and then added some clear stickers to spell "H2O" for the rest of the title.
here's a close up shot of the journaling. sort of close up. i should have zoomed in a little more, now that i see this. click on it to read it larger. the journaling strips weren't standing out enough against the pattern paper. so i inked the edges with a red ink pad.
