Welcome to your next stop on the the Summertime fun Moxxie blog hop! At the end of today's post you'll find a list of all the designers for today's hop (with links to their blogs) AND how to sign up to win a prize (because what's a blog hop without a great prize?). Today I have another layout about swimming, simply titled Swim.  With 2 boys who are close in age, I often scrap similar themes over and over again.  Last month I shared a swimming layout about my youngest son, and this month I'm sharing one about my older son. 

Not only am I scrapping the same theme, but I decided to use the same paper collection (Child's Play) to show that 2 layouts with a similar theme, and same paper collection can turn out very, very different.

I did some patterned paper layering, and used my sewing machine to stitch around each layer.  I decided not to frame my photos with patterned paper, but decided to pop them up with foam adhesive instead. 

 That rich sapphire blue patterned paper is not only great for swimming layouts, but serves as a great base for journaling on with a white gel pen.  I finished the whole thing off with some layered die-cuts and stickers.

Child's Play Crazy Daze
Child's Play Walk in the Park
Child's Play Playtime
Child's Play Die-cuts
Child's Play Element Stickers
Child's Play Border Stickers

 Now check out the rest of the designers on today's Summertime Fun Blog Hop:
