Celebrate the Occasion Pool Party Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Celebrate the Occasion "Pool Party" Blog Hop. If you are coming from my super talented friend Amber's site at My 3 E Scrapbooking you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. You'll want to be sure to start at the beginning because the grand prize is at Celebrate the Occasion and then there is tons of blog candy on every site! Everyone has lots of fun summer projects to share with you!

I made this fun summer layout when I got all our swimming pictures back from last summer! The kids had a blast swimming and I loved making this swimming layout! I used paper from Karen Foster and Bazzill and then added the little bling bubbles and prima flowers. All the bright colors just make me want to go jump in the pool! :)


I cut out some 'splashes' from vellum and then inked around the edges with my Tim Holtz broken china distress ink. I love the way that ink doesn't even smudge on vellum! I used a couple of different embossing folders on the fish and then inked them up too.

Well I can't let you leave without a little blog candy right? I'm giving away the iRock from Imaginisce! All you have to do is leave me a comment and don't forget to leave me a way to contact you in case you are the lucky winner! Also, if you happen to like what you see on my blog and would like to become a follower, that would be awesome too, but it's not required for your chance to win. :)
The next stop on our hop today is Lisa at Pretty Paper Ribbons! Make sure to stop by and leave her some great comment love!

Have an awesome day!
