This page is one of my favorites. 
I love, love, love the color scheme.

For my red, blue and tan stripes I used scraps. I love scraps. 
I have a lot of love today I guess...

I only had one "light blue whale" paper but I wanted to use it on both pages (to tie them together). 

Dilema?
No...

I cut off the bottom 3 inches and used the main portion on page 1. 
The extra 3 inches I turned vertical for the right side of page 2.

The shells were cut with the cricket. 

I tied the net [bottom of page 2] together using thick white string. 

I hand cut the "tags" from page 2 and used a hole punch for the circle. 
I cut out one of the whales (from my paper), added some hand cut "waves and "14" (# of lifeguards) to the first tag. 
For the second tag I wrote the name of our pool and the "Summer '10."

I always write a date on my pages; no use documenting memories if you can't remember when they are from! :)


 
 
To honor of the fact that Summer has finally made it to Utah..."knock on wood" I decided that I needed to post a Summer themed scrapbook page.

I chose a somewhat calm blue background page, light blue waves.

3 fun patterned pages were cut into thick stripes [pic above]; rainbow striped [far left], summer script [middle] and purple polka dots [far right].

I found these cute foam beach stickers [top right pic] from Archivers at the Provo Town Center Mall. I glued pieces of thick white string between them to "connect".

For the sun's middle I chose a shimmery orange paper. The "summer" letters, cut with the cricket, and the sun beams were cut from the same matte orange paper.

I used foam puffs to make the "summer" stand out. I also stuck another piece of white string under the "U" where the oranges were blending together.
I also used a white gel pen around the entire page; to create "stitching" around the sun, to frame Jake kissing me and to "stitch" around my labels.
