Water Logged

I made this page using some of the pics I took when we went swimming at my parent's house. I've also entered it into a couple challenges. This is one of those designs that I had in my head and drew a rough sketch. The photo sizes didn't quite match up the way I was wanting but in the end I actually liked the difference in the sizes. Just another example of a page making itself. I always follow a rough plan then just let it tell me what to do.

Some of the letters I cut using my Cricut and some odd chipboard. The chipboard was thinner than I was wanting for the page so I cut two of each letter and glued them together to make them thicker. Then I sanded the edges and painted them. I did this with the letters "W,e,L,g,e". The other letters used are from some odds and ends chipboard letters and Cosmo Cricket sticker letters.

To add a "water drop" feel to the page I added some Ranger Glossy Accents in dots on the letters and papers. No particular pattern here. Just dabbed away.

For the journaling circle I used a circle acrylic stamp Autumn Leaves I think then punched it out using my large circle punch. Then used my Making Memories tag maker to put in in a tag. The journaling reads: "You boys had so much fun at Granny & Papaw's swimming. I hope it's a day you never forget!! June 26,2008" Sorry for the fuzzy pic.

Other products used:
Fancy Pants
Apple Barrel Craft paints
Heidi Swapp
Zig Writers markers

I hope everyone had a fun safe 4th of July. I will be uploading some pics I took of our fireworks soon. We had a fun time. I just love watching the kids "Oooo and Ahhhh". But I'm a big kid too so I did my fair share of "ooooing and Ahhhing" too. heehee

Until next time,
Keep those creative juices flowin'
