Howdy! How are things is your neck of the woods? I hope all is swell! We here in the Lee-Bishop family are winding down the swim year with Virginia Age Group Champs behind us and just summer league champs to go. Then a blissful month OFF!! It's funny because I know both kids are looking forward to it but are also wondering what they will do with their free time. I thought after three and a half days at the pool they would be done... Guess where we found ourselves Monday night for three hours?!...
Today's layout is inspired by the latest sketch over at Creative Scrappers. I'm so glad to see Kristine and her design team back at it with sketches! And to have Just Nick be sponsor, having just come off that design team. Couldn't be a better pairing!
Earlier you saw Mia's companion layout to this one, hers was title "Record Breaker" and created with a Cocoa Daisy kit. Nikolas accomplished a similar feat and I wanted to document his accomplishment as well. Interestingly, both layouts have a vertical strip of pictures that run down the left hand side of the page.
My embellishment clusters, while still a trio, are placed slightly differently that those in the sketch. I took a bit of liberty there. Because I messed about with the digital cut file, squashing it down the page, I needed something to fill the top space.
The patterned papers and embellishments are an eclectic mix of goodies from my stash. I had set out to use the Echo Park Let's Be Mermaids collection but found that I wanted more variety in the aquas and greens so reached into my scraps for the backing pieces to the cut file.
Yet another swimming layout for the books! Layouts from this weekend might be a tad more difficult given I didn't bring my big camera and we were in doors. I have a few pictures (illegal given we weren't supposed to be taking pictures or video from behind the blocks - oops) on my camera but not many. I really just wanted to be present and enjoy their moments. Rather unlike the scrapper in me! LOL!
I hope you have a nice mix of getting it done and being in the moment in your summer!
