Crave The Wave!


     Happy Friday everyone! Boy is this summer going by fast isn't it? Fridays @ My Cricut Craft Room is the place to showcase our scrapbook lay outs. This week's theme is either Dance or Sports and mine is sport related, ie, surf boarding.... sort of.
     We spent the 4th of July week in Colonial Williamsburg, VA with our entire family, 24 of us in all! We stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge and had a blast. One of the draws to this place was that they have an indoor waterpark which also included a simulated surfing area. Both of our sons and one of our grand daughter"s decided to give it a try. Luckily I got some great pictures. Here's how I scrapped them:
     My favorite go to cart for the summer and anything water related is Provo Crafts Life's A Beach.The waves are from the border feature. I cut 4 to make a border on the top and bottom of my 2 page LO.I just love the chevron look of this background paper. It comes from DCWV "the Tradewinds" stack. It really give the feel of the waves don't you think?
     I found the perfect sentiment on this cart. Under the Title words also on page 45, you find this great phrase which I cut @ 2.75" out of silver and mounted on a piece of dark blue card stock from my stash.
The pictures were all triple mounted: Silver, shimmer blue and white card stock. The beautiful shimmer card stock is from DCWV Shimmer Stack.
     I wanted a tag that would go with the sport so I used the surf board on page 74 and used the hide option to conceal the detail cuts then cut them at 2.75". Now they were ready for some stamping. I used K Andrews Splash-tastic Summer set and Stazon Black ink. Wow is this ever a great stamp set! You can purchase them over at Erica's Store. Just a brief note about Erica's Store. She is having a moving sale so now is a fabulous time to check out her deals.
     I hope you have enjoyed my project for today and encourage you to head back over to My Cricut Craft Room and see what the rest of the Design Team has to share with you. Yeah for the weekend!!!!!
