One Cool Dude

12X12 layout American Crafts Daughter Heather Landry Just Beachy Kids Mister Huey September 2012 Kits

I absolutely ADORED the Just Beachy kit and add on this month. I live in Southern Louisiana and we spend a lot of time in or near the water to cope with the sweltering Summer heat. I had a lot of beach photos that would've gone with the colors and beach theme of the kit, but I wanted to try to step outside of the box a little. I decided to use the kit to scrap two sets of swimming photos.

On this first page, I captured my son on an inflatable raft. He was resting after hours of swimming and he kept looking around like "Yeah, I'm cool. I got the raft and you don't." It was really funny. We were at a friend's pool and he commandeered all of the floaties. Little stinker! 

I cut the sun and the banners by hand. I was at a crop and I didn't have access to my Cricut. Now that's old school! I thought the sunglasses went with my cool dude theme so I added them on top of the journaling spot. A few rosettes and a lot of splattered mist finished off this page.

This second page is based on a sketch that my husband drew for me. He has lots of ideas and I turn them into layouts. When I showed Jessica his sketch, she said he could be the assistant sketchologist. LOL I used photos of my daughter on this page. She isn't afraid of anything. It's to the point that she gives me gray hair. She decided to jump right in the deep end of a friend's pool. I figured she would be worried or scared but NOPE. 

I bet you can tell that I just loved the rosettes in this kit. They were so bright and fun. If you look closely at the layout you'll see the tiny bits of bling that I added to the water. I thought it would be a good way to highlight the splashing! 

I hope you're all having a wonderfully scrappy day,

    Very cool pages Heather. I love the white background with the splotches of ink on both layouts.
