Scrap the Boys January challenge...

I love being on leave from work.... so much more time to scrap! I've managed to fit in a January challenge already!  :)

The challenge at Scrap the Boys this month is to use a photo of your son's favourite summer or holiday activity and use it to inspire your layout.

The first thing that came to mind for me was swimming... Tyler has hardly been out of the pool the last month or so and has all of a sudden got comfortable in the water - he LOVES jumping and will just jump time and time again, spinning around and doing pin drops and bombs, and the other night he even woke me up to tell me he was practicing diving in his sleep!

I'm not sure what the background cardstock is but the blue & domino patterned paper is Crate Paper which I have inked, painted, smooshed around and embossed then cut into bits. 

Materials used: Crate Paper Restoration Collection, October Afternoon button, Zing! embossing powder, blue Dylusions, white and aqua Kaiser paint, 2 Crafty chipboard negatives, Amy Tangerine stickers, Kaiser bling, Scenic Route chipboard words, Basic Grey alphas.
