H2H Challenge: Water Fun!

The challenge this week over at H2H is perfect for summer!  The theme is water fun.  The guidelines are that your project must include swimming or beachy images.  I decided to create a layout with a pattern from Magic using the soon to be retired Footloose paper pack for this challenge, so here it is...

The photo is too small to read the journalling, but these are photos of my son who was terrified of the deep end only weeks before this trip!  Apparently he conquered his fear in Florida!

Here is a close up of the pockets.  Mine are decorative, but they could be used to hold hidden photos or journalling.

CTMH Products used to create this layout include:
Papers: Footloose (X7151B), White Daisy cardstock
Stamps: Footloose WOTG stampset (G1036)
Inks: Lagoon, Creme Brulee, and Chocolate
Embellishments: Lagoon Baker's Twine (Z1701), Wooden Badge Buttons (Z1703), Designer Ribbon Green Collection (Z1616), and Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain (Z1383)
Other: Corner Rounder (Z578), Sanding Kit (Z1294), and Magic (9034)  

For more inspiration, head on over to H2H and check out the fabulous artwork created this week by Design Team A, or click on their links here: Mary, Kelly, Caroline, Erin, Madeline, and Shirley.
