As I stated in my previous posting, I noticed that my postings for the last 5 CropChocolate challenges did not post . . . I had them scheduled but for some reason they didn't post? Whatever the reason, I'm going to rectify that tonight by revising and combining a couple of them so there's not so many at once. And then publishing them ASAP. :)
For Challenge #28, we were to "Create a project that "Celebrates Summer" with an added requirement of including water. Water can be added however they want - in a photo, a stamp, a wave border, rain, etc!!" When I saw the word "water" along with "Celebrates Summer", I knew I wanted to do a layout of my daughter swimming. But I was stumped even though I have lots o summer/water pictures of my daughter. . . . for almost a week, nothing came until late last night (8/28) when I was looking thru an old scrapbook. Some of you may remember me mentioning that I'm "redoing" some of my old layouts . . . well, not really "redoing" as to actually just doing again because I'm keeping my old layouts. They show how I have grown as a scrapbooker . . . it's part of my creative history. With that being said, I knew I wanted to do this layout (again) of the 1st time my daughter went swimming. Here's what I came up with:
"Splash" paper collection by Echo Park
"Paradise Beach" cardstock by Echo Park (red)
"Baby Blue" Liquid Pearls
Walnut Stain distress ink
NonCC: Glimmer Mists in "Atlantic" and "Marmalade"
I love using tan or Kraft cardstock with bright colored patterned paper. I think it enhances the paper especially when I "flick" mists onto the paper as I did here with my glimmer mists in "Atlantic" and "Marmalade".
Well,, what do you think? I'm pretty please with it . . . enough that I've scrapped some of the other pictures that were taken this same day.
Till the next time I'm up in the night. Kathy
