Today I have a single event pocket page up on the Cocoa Daisy blog to share with you. You can see what the other designers did with their October City Park Day in The Life pocket fillers HERE. I used this fall themed kit to create a non-themed pocket page of Nikolas' most recent long course champs meet. Fortunately there is lots of red and blue, our team colors in this kit thus making it work.
I do have to disclaim that I used a piece of paper not in this months kit and number and letter stickers from previous kits. I really didn't want to deviate from the cohesiveness of the colors so chose to use a few extras. The patterned paper on the left with the waves was a must! It just went so well with the theme of the event being scrapped.
I really wanted to two other "things" with the two blank happy's in the above card but there wasn't anything that made sense that came to mind. And truly, happy swimmer summed it all up. Those red polka dots were just perfect for the summary stats of the meet. Adding up total seconds dropped was a feat in itself!! Nikolas informed me that he raced 4,400 meters but many more laps were swum with the various warm ups and cool downs...
Underneath that notebook paper piece from my BYOAO from Doodlebag is actually a glassine bag that I resized to fit in the pocket. I had intended it to be a spot to put hidden journaling which doesn't yet exist. I also used some of the free download arrows that arleigh created and are available in the shop.
One of the Noteworthy News emails was printed out in part to include the kudos to the kids who did well at the meet. On the tag behind the printed segment is the story of how Nikolas' name was initially omitted, a frequent event in his swimming career...., which we had corrected.
When you are working with primary colors like red and blue, it's usually fairly easy to take a themed kit and do something else with it as I've shown here! Not that the theme of the kit wasn't spectacular! I still have so many great fall pictures that are perfect for the kit, I just really wanted to get some older events scrapped!
