I love scrapping swim lessons! Here's this year's layout.
Unfortunately, my scanner didn't capture the texture I stamped onto the circle. And, the awesomely sparkly title letters seem flat and recede in a way they don't in real life. Despite that, I really like the layout. It's based on this sketch by Shannon White for the Scrapping Stamper Design Team.
There's no journaling spot on the sketch. Normally I make a place for journaling, but this time I actually forgot! A layout without journaling is so rare for me, but I like this how it is. I do have some things I want to say about this year's swim lessons, so I'll either journal on the back or I'll journal all the way around the perimeter.
I am in love with the fish embellishments on my page. I'd been struggling with what to put instead of the stars in the sketch, but nothing was working quite right... until I saw Leslie Davis' tutorial on the GCD blog. She used leaves to make her fish - so adorable! I had some mulberry leaves I'd misted orange that I used for the body of the fish, then I used the plain leaves for the tails. I love how they turned out.
