Another swimming layout to share with you! Another swimming layout using the Bella Blvd All American collection, none the less. Looking back over the year as I was saving my pictures, I spied a fair number of red, white and blue Bella swimming layouts... See, our team colors are red and blue. Mix that with my love for BB and, well, I can't help it! It's automatic. It's natural!
And yes, I know there is no journaling. I am saving the open white space up there to attempt (key word) to get Nikolas to write about his own life. He's 12, it's time. He can begin to document his own views.
I mixed and matched chipboard with stickers to create the title. No, the title shouldn't make sense to you. NAG is actually an acronym for the meet he was swimming at; National Age Group (championship, I think). The meet is referred to as just NAG. It's a big deal meet and there is a special big deal relay called the crescendo where an increasing odd ages swim increasing distance then decreasing even ages swimming decreasing distance. Only one boy (or girl for the girls relay) of each age (9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14) make the relay. Nikolas had get a move on during the earlier relay to snag a spot on the relay team. It was nerve wrecking. He pulled it off. But anyway, that's what the title is all about.
There will be another layout of a picture that Coach David took of the 6 boys on the team. Gotta remember these moments. Milestones in an age group swimmer's life.
I love that the All American collection, though for patriotism and Independence Day really has enough generic or "support" elements that I can get so many layouts out of the collection pack that are "off theme". Perfect!
Do you have any collections that you repeatedly use or repeatedly use for an "off theme" event/sport/occasion? I've shared mine with you, let's see yours!
