Scrap the Boys January

I was lucky enough to win the December challenge at Scrap the Boys with my 'Batman Smells' layout! This month's theme is drawing layout inspiration from your son's favourite holiday/summer activity. 

My kids are both water mad and I managed to capture such great shots of him playing on the (as we say in South Africa) 'Slippery Slide'...

I wanted the title to reflect the last small photo where is has fallen over, creating a splash. I found a great cut file in the Silhouette store by Sarah Bailey. Crate's 'Peanut Deli' from the Acorn Avenue collection was perfect for the water effect of the puddles!

I've used an Imaginarium Designs 'A' chipboard letter to add dimension to the title

Hidden journaling

The 'On Trend' collection just screams 'Summer' to me!

Products used: PP, Crate's 'On Trend' collection and 'Acorn Avenue'; Flair button, October Afternoon; Basic Grey canvas flowers; Elle's Studio tag; Simple Stories 100 days of summer journaling tag; Silhouette cut file; Authentique alpha stickers; Imaginarium Designs Chipboard letter
