Fun Together

I'm on a mission to get a few more layouts made of the Greenberg side of grandkids.   We are going to see them this weekend so want to have as many layouts made as I can take all I've made recently to them.     I didn't use a sketch for this one, just put it tougher myself with my Fancy Pants - Down By The Shore collection.   I literally had one full sheet left for background, the anchor piece was the exact size of scrap I had left and the blue wave paper, I had to cut apart to have it long enough to go all the way across the page and just covered the break with he anchor piece.  I know have 2  pieces of
1x12 strips of paper in another print of the collection.   The embellishements are from 3 different manufactures that I had lumped together in my catch all stash.

I'm entering this layout in three challenges.   First is the "Paper Issues" announcing the new issue of October Afternoon - Seas of the Day, with a chance to win that collection .   They gave you some idea of what to do for the challenge.  Anything with summer or vacation, use Oct Afternoon papers,
Use anchors or nautical embellies,  something to do with the water. or download one of their free June printables.      I absolutely have used all of my October Afternoon papers.   I did have one piece of an orangish patterned paper in the drawer by OA and also this one flair button to left of picture, so I "think" it came from OA.    I used Anchor patterned paper,  Pictures of the family at the swimming pool for some summer and water fun while they took a mini weekend vacation to a resort at  the Lake of the Ozarks.

Next I'm going to enter this layout at "Lasting Memories"  for their first themed challenge for July of "Together", Challente # 248,  the challenge was to 'scrap the theme together'  and I believe that is exactly what this layout is about.    Nikki and her 3 kids enjoying some fun times together at the resort swimming pool.    They said the had a great 3 day weekend getting out of the house and the city and just being together.

Then for my 3rd challenge   (Love when I get to link to multiple challenges)   The Friday challenge at
"Frosted Designs" is - Summertime Blues.    I would say this fits just perfectly.   Even though the picture I took of the layout, you really can't tell much of the background paper, but it is a muted blue also.  So I used all blues in my paper and matting and my title.   Then I have the picture of the family in the blue water of the swimming pool at their mini vacation at Four Seasons at the Lake of the Ozarks.

You can check out the challenges below.
