hello crafty peeps! 

i've got a new project to share with you today! to create my layout i used KAISERCRAFT game on! collection and it is all about little THEO learning how to jump in the water.

this summer we went to FRANCE and SPAIN for our summer holiday and in the beginning THEO would just sit by the pool, playing nicely with his water bucket, but he would refuse to go into the water. well, long story short, at the end of our vacation he was not only playing in the pool, but he even dared to jump in the water! and we stayed only about 10 days there. you can only imagine how PROUD we were of our little boy! 

 i started with KAISERCARD coconut weave cardstock, which i altered using TIM HOLTZ bubble layering stencil and TIM HOLTZ mini distress ink pads – scattered straw.

then i added the blue pattern with KAISERCRAFT diamonds clear stamp and TIM HOLTZ mini distress ink pads – salty ocean.

 after the ink has dried i punched the edge pattern and layered the altered cardstock on the GAME ON! winner patter paper. before i attached the two layers, i covered the reddish pattern with RANGER multi-medium gesso.

 for the layeres under my pictures i used GAME ON! team mate pattern paper and GAME ON! winner patter paper. i ruffled their edges with TIM HOLTZ paper distresser. the paper die cuts and embellishments are from the COLLECTABLES packages matching this collection – equipment and awards

to create the flap for the picture in the middle i used GAME ON! athlete pattern paper - the only one featuring swimming motives. but as you can see, you can create a jump-in-the-pool layout using baseball papers or even basketball ones.

i've added a hidden jouranlling spot to record THEO's achievement without spoiling my design.

to embellish my layout i used paper die cuts, KAISERCRAFT mini paper blooms coconut, paper blooms sage and black rhinestones.
and a few of the stickers matching my swimming theme – swimming sticker sheet

i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

have a wonderful week!

hugs 'n smiles,
