Swim Lessons Sketch Challenge

Hi there. Today I have a scrapbook LO to share with you. Ok...so this took me almost 2 hours to do...lol, but I love the results. My girls like it too, which is good since it is going in our 2010 family album...lol. Anyway, I made this for the November sketch challenge at the Imaginisce blog too. I just love Imaginisce...their stuff is always so stinkin' cute! Oh, and they have the bestest tools EVER. I just love the i-Rock and i-Top, and I used both on this page. Here is the sketch...
Here is my version of the sketch...I used the Splash Dance collection for this page. I started with a 12x12 piece of PP. I then choose 2 solid colors from the PP to use. I went with a peachy orange and a light green. I used a piece from another one of the PP in the Splash Dance collection for under my photos. I just love this collection...they little fishies are so cute! I trimmed my photos and layered them across the page. I used the reverse side of the PP I used for under the photos to cut out my title. The photos on this page are from my DDs' end of summer swim lesson party. Last, I added some embellishments...here is where my favorite Imaginisce tools come in!I used the i-Rock and the Glam Rock Pearls to create these "splashes". I used the swirl stencil to help me do these too. I used my i-Top to create some "bubble brads". I took some parts of the PP and added these...

Overall, I was pretty pleased with the way this page turned out. And yes...it took my 2 hours, but it turned out so great! Thanks for stopping by!

Turned out really cute! Don't feel bad, I'm an extremely slow scrapper, so 2 hrs isn't so bad. The important thing is that you like it!
