Making a SPLASH!


Welcome to my Sunday 'Anything But a Card' posting for PaperWorksCo!  I found some photos hanging around my craft room which I had had printed ages ago for scrapbooking so I decided it was about time to put together another page layout for Jacob's scrapbook.

These pictures were taken on Jacob's first trip to DisneyWorld back in 2009 when he was 3 1/2.  We were on a splash pad in Toon Town and of course the water kept disappearing and appearing randomly out of the spouts.  He had soooo much fun and I was thrilled that I managed to capture it all on camera.  So here is my page of Jacob at the splash pad.  I pulled out the blue and lime green colours from the photos and inked up the gorgeous Ollie the Octopus from PaperWorksCo 'Aqua Amigos' collection ... too cute!  I coloured with copics using YG11,15,17).  I punched out loads of different sized circles, again to mimic the splash pad design.  I used the Cricut for the title page (Opposites Attract cartridge) and found the cute splash embellishments amongst my scrapbooking goodies.

It was so much fun doing a scrapbook page ... I get so zoned into my cardmaking that I put my scrapbooking too much on the back burner.  I think I need to make myself a crafting commitment to make at least 1 or 2 pages a month .... that or I'll never get the kids' pictures scrapbooked!!

Thanks for stopping in again today.  I hope you can pop over to the PWCO blog and check out what the lovely Tanya has also done for her ABAC posting!  Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!

I am loving Ollie, he is so cute, and you have shaded him in perfectly. The gem splash stickers are really cute too. A perfect ABAC creation.
