Online Crop at Two Scrapbook Friends!

Two Scrapbook Friends is hosting an online crop. It started on Friday, February 24th and it runs through until Sunday, March 4th. Each member of the design team, plus Joanne and myself, all issued a challenge. The theme of the crop is 'Chase Away the Winter Blaahs', so all the challenges are 'warm weather' related.

My challenge is to scrapbook your favourite summer activity. For me, that could be many, many different things, but I chose to go with swimming in our backyard pool. It is our summer 'getaway' without having to go anywhere. The photo is of Jay & David, just after they did a marathon of flips and jumps off the diving board (those photos will be for another layout).


I dug into my stash and found some papers and embellishments from Fancy Pants. The banner was cut from one of the papers and I added some brads between each point. This collection also came with chipboard elements and I loved the 'summer' word and it worked perfectly for my title.


I layered some paper on top of a border sticker and attached it to my page using foam adhesive. I didn't add any journaling to my page but I did stamp the year.


I added a bit of stitching to my sun and also incorporated some more of the chipboard.


There is still lots of time to play along with the challenges and have a chance to win some prizes too. Click here for all the details.
