The March Cocoa Daisy kit is chock full of scrappy goodness! I have created at least 10 layouts from this kit, or kits. I get the main, paper add on and Day in the Life kits and between the 3 there are so many possibilities. Throw in some of the Build Your Own Add Ons and the skies the limits! It's insane what you can do with just a month, never mind a subscription! And it's like that every month! I went back and used goodies from the January kit for this layout!
The background is a sandwich of the front and back of a Cocoa Daisy exclusive paper! And because that isn't enough exclusive, so too is the red with white polka dots that is behind the picture. AND the 6x4 DITL pocket scrapping card. OH! and let's not forget the exclusive die cuts that come with the DITL kit! SO much exclusiveness in these kits!
Like many layouts you have seen of this boying what he loves best, I stuck with the teams colors of red and blue. For a little bit of variety of took advantage of the lighter blue that was rather pervasive through out this kit as well!
The dominant manufacturer of the kit outside of the Cocoa Daisy exclusives is Fancy Pants. There were a lot of softer, more pastel colors that didn't really work with this layout but I was able to find bits and pieces that coordinate with the color scheme.
This is an older layout... A year ago today in fact! I realized when we were out at short course age group champs that I forget specifics of times of old(er) meets that I want to know later, long past the event. I want to document not only the event but the relevant info such as time improvements and newly gained time standards. Info that is much more difficult to come by retrospectively. I have so many swimming pictures I might as well do something with them! Swimming is, after all, such a huge part of these kids' lives. Our lives!
