Swim





I love it when a layout idea goes together well.   I searched and searched for this water paper knowing that I had a single piece left and FINALLY I found it.    I think it pops behind the picture and just the right touch to the layout.   I used Week 4 at LET'S GET SKETCHY.    I actually got all 4 weeks of completed this month.   I try every month but usually miss one.   Plus since I was the August Spotlight this month I wanted to make sure and make them all.   I do admit this sketch by Bev threw me a bit, bit I ended up making it work,  I just used two pictures instead of one that the sketch showed.



I didn't feel like getting my cricut going, well actually didn't want to clean the desk where it is, so looked in my Misc. embellie stash for a banner I could trace and just cut out.   So I found some chipboard ones and was going to trace and cut in different papers and them remembered that FROSTED DESIGNS, has a challenge going this week to use Chipboard,  so I looked and I had 5 pieces of chipboard banner and used 4 of them for background of my tittle.   Then I used some glittery Thicker Chipboard letters on the title and then kept looking in my stash and from another package found this chipboard journal box and it was the right colors and used it for my journaling.



Love it when everything comes together and I mixed and matched so many different collections and such.
