Splish Splash!

A few months back I went to a day crop and found myself in an interesting situation: all the projects I was excited about working on got wrapped up really quickly, and I didn't really have anything planned. Luckily I grabbed extra photos and paper packs because I like to overpack like that. I had bought the DCWV Citrus PP pack and Cardstock pack in January 2009, but was crushed when they arrived and I hated them. I dragged my feet and by the time I was ready to return them, it was too late and I wouldn't even be able to get a store credit, so I hung on to them figuring I would maybe sell them to someone local or something. Anywho, as the months dragged by I found the paper less and less objectionable, and so when I was packing for this particular pack I tossed them in my bag. Lo and behold, they would being the perfect match for these photos I had with me! So the moral of the story is, always over pack and never return anything. Listen to my words of wisdom people!

I decided to take a pretty simple approach to this book and kept the journaling to a minimum, same with embellishments. I was pleased to find out that the Lime Ricky buttons and brads I had purchased were a perfect color match! I'm quite pleased with how this all came together.

I have had this scalloped square clear acrylic album for awhile but never felt comfortable with how I went to use it, but think using it for clear covers worked out great!

And now on to the barrage of gigantic pictures! As always, click to enbiggen.
