Laughter, Water & Rainbows
Here is the second layout I made using Scrappin' Great Deals August Scrapbooking Kit. This was such a fun afternoon to remember! My kids are water magnets, the sprinkler water was so cold...it was only early June, but did they care? NO!! My husband kept luring the kids into the sprinkler when it was off, they would lean in, and SPLASH he would turn on the water! A ton of screaming, laughing...it was the best!! Malcolm kept saying he saw rainbows and when I looked at the pictures after...sure enough there it was!!
I cut up strips from the Echo Park paper to make my own rainbow, and cut out the splashes from the Fancy Pants paper for the water. I used my new Fiskars wave border punch to make the sun's rays, did some stitching using my Sew Easy, around the sun and the border. I have a brand new favourite mist - from October Afternoon - lovely colour and no glimmer - sometimes you don't want glimmer!! I sprayed the white cardstock with the mist - (colour is night sky), after placing some cut out clouds around. I also used Viva Decor's Pearl Pen in Icy White - but definitely need more work - my pearls are more of a freshwater type!!
Thanks for stopping by!!! One more to share tomorrow!! Have a super day!
