Splash Zone & Playing in the Sand

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!! I have a couple of scrapbook layouts to share with you today, which are part of the Imaginisce release party for the new Making Waves collection.  Here in Texas we have been having Spring-like weather for some time now so I am really starting to get in the mood for summer. With that said, check out this scrapbooking page, which was taken at our old neighborhood pool last summer.

Supplies: Imaginisce Making Waves collection - Walking on Sunshine, Tropical Heatwave, Surf's Up, Keepin' Cool, Bloomin' Hot papers, Sun-kissed die-cuts; Mr. Huey Mists; My Little Shoebox alphas; Bella Blvd alphas

The pool has a really cool play structure in the water, with a slide and water spouts and all sorts of fun things for the kids.  We had really been missing it but luckily my friend, Audrey, still lives there and invited us over for a water playdate. Sure would be fun to go again this year. ;)

Looking back at the past 6 - 8 months of projects, I've discovered that I really like to mist. I stayed true to my mists on this layout.  I seldomly use the spray nozzle to mist and usually pull the nozzle out and flick it to get the big blotches but I did a combo on this layout.
I had fun layering the various pattern paper but I especially love the chevron papers in this new collection. I just stacked away at the papers, distressed them and stitched them in place.

I decided to go a little more clean in this next scrapbook layout, which is all about my littlest at the beach.  She was having a blast filling her bucket with sand, flipping it over and filling it up again.

I filled the page with my photos and what I refer to as color blocking but I don't think I'm right.

Supplies: Imaginisce Making Waves collection: Walking on Sunshine, Tropical Heatwave, Bloomin' Hot, Surf's Up, Hot! Hot! Hot! papers, Sunny Side Up Sticker Stacker, Hot Summer Day Chipboard stacker, Summer Fun Canvas Sticker, twine from The Twinery, Mr. Huey mists, Imaginisce i-rock, Kraft cardstock

I added chipboard, canvas, stickers and lots of fussy cut pieces. I hand stitched around some of the elements with baker's twine from The Twinery and then to top it off I blinged it out with my i-rock. Oh and I added some mist splatter.

Make sure to head over to the Imaginisce blog and leave a comment over there for a chance to win a collection of your own!
