A little bit more Summer!

This is a layout of my son Evan. I couldn't resist doing one on him at the water park this summer. We were there every week and he learned how to swim during the first month! He is only 3 so I was soooo proud when we got it down!! As soon as he figured it out he was off to the "big boy" slides; where he just went down them over and over until it was time to go home.

To get this layout I used the Bo Bunny Sun kissed line. The only paper that is from a different line is the main base that you see in brown. That is from Echo Parks- A walk in the park. I also used some Jillibean corrugated Alphas. They come in your basic cardboard color so I jazzed them up with come acrylic paint to match my color scheme. Next, I embellished up the page with some tiny Artisan Elements from Pink Paislee (those are fun too cause you can paint, spray, or ink them to match) in this case I inked mine purple. Last, I added some pop dots for dimension, a red button from Jillibean, and did some journaling with the oh so wonderful Uni-ball white Signo pen. Hope you like it!
