He Loves making a Splash!!

And here is another My 2 Angels DT share...said a I had a few LOL...I found this photo in my ever growing mountain of 'to scrap' was one that Wendy had taken when the kids were mucking around in our pool in Jan 2008, and when my little son was 4 and still swam with floaties on. He looked so cute and so happy being able to float around the pool under his own steam.

For this layout I used mainly coredinations cardstock, with a hint of the orange side of a piece of Adorn It Carolees Creations Rev Em Up Fast Ride A.

I painted some cute little scrapware sail boats with acrylic paints, and gave them a little spray with the clear glacier mist from the glimmermist winter wishes kit. While they were drying, I used the leftover board from the sail boat set as a stencil and misted two boats onto the white cardstock using Moonlight glimmermist. I placed the painted boat shapes just off to the side of the stencilled ones to give a glimmermist shadow effect. I added a cute little bird charm as it reminded me of a seagull. The ruffled ribbon is a navy blue organza ribbon that I gathered using a machine stitch and zigzag stitched in place to look like water.

I ran a piece of the blue coredinations cardstock thru my sizzix machine and embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder, then sanded it lightly to make the pattern stand out.

Materials used:
