06-13-2011, 03:09 AM
Hello all!

Welcome to Week 3 of our Capture the Moment contest. This week all LO's must be created using Julie C. Designs refreshing: Blue Wave Kit (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_23&products_id=7555). Please check your PM boxes for your free copy of this kit.

We are continuing our path down the four season. This week our focus is summer!

Your assignment is to capture "Fun with Water". Water features in so much of our lives, cleaning, bathing, life itself, but it is also, well, a toy. Nothing can be as fun as water. In this LO show water being fun! For us it's a mainstay of summer (this weekend water balloons featured very heavily in that fun), whether at the beach, a lake, riverside or just in the backyard.

This LO must contain 3 photos, all the same size, telling the story.
You must use 1 background paper.
You must use at least 3 more as geometric shapes/cutouts.
You may use a template, please credit it if you do.
Element use I leave completely up to you. There is no right or wrong.
There must be journaling. I love journaling. How does this represent "Fun with Water" to you?
You must post the LO in the Week 3 Gallery Week 3: Fun with Water (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1261-week-3-3a-fun-with-water.html) by midnight (EST) on Thursday.
Big smooches,

Oh, wow! This challenge sounds fun, fun, fun!! I can't wait to see what you all do, this is a beautiful kit!! ;)

Looks like another fun challenge, and a great kit to work with!

Would it be OK to use baby, bath-time photos for this challenge in the event I can't find adequate beach or other summer, water-fun photos?

06-13-2011, 03:02 PM
What a wonderful kit to work with! It's just gorgeous!

06-13-2011, 03:17 PM
Of course! As long as the baby is having fun...

does the template have to be from theStudio, or can it be from anywhere?

06-13-2011, 10:42 PM
Ohhh - It will be tough to choose what photos to use on this one. Thank you so much ladies!

Tropical Daydream



Family fun at any water is a yearly thing. We plan again to go Father's Day to the Lake at Lathontan boating and Wakeboarding. I did try it and got up once or twice at Lake Almanor, CA where the family was wakeboarding during most of the summer of 2009, Grampa and I usually are the look out for the one's riding the waves. We rented a campsite on the Lake for the summer along with our daughter and her family. We had the first two sites which was so perfect for the wonderful view of the Lake. They had a little alcove where small children could play in the water. The boat dock was right near us so we could just walk right out onto the dock. The wild flowers were so beautiful that summer alone the coast line next to the campsite. I guess some lady planted wild flowers years ago and they are still coming up every year.

LOL, this was a true challenge for me as I couldn't find adequate photos but then, after much digging through my huge photo collection, I finally found some. Phew!

Here's mine:

I'm not totally in love with my LO this week, but I need to stop fussing with it and get to bed. So here goes:

I had already purchased this STUNNING kit and even though I'm no longer in the contest, I'm going to do the challenge for myself!

Gorgeous layouts in the gallery. Have fun, judges. ;)

06-15-2011, 02:25 AM
YAY! It is fantabulous kit. You are welcome to post your LO... just mention it's a play-a-long so I don't get confused voting LOL.

I'm glad you like the challenge!

A big Thank You for this beautiful kit to Julie C Designs and to the studio for the use of it. Here is my layout:

I have been thinking a lot about my grandson lately. Tanner was five years old then. Now, he is a wonderful young man. He is leaving on the Fourth of July for boot camp in the Air Force.

The journaling says:

When our grandson, Tanner was 5 years old, we took him on a vacation. We wanted to introduce him to family in Chicago. We criss crossed several states, stopping at every child friendly attraction we could find. This was his "I will only eat at McDonald's" phase. On we went, zig - zagging several states going from McDonald's to McDonald's. Each night we would stay at a hotel and the first thing Tanner would ask was "Where is the pool?" and "Can we go swimming yet?" He loved the water so much. I would put his floaties on his arms and get into the pool with him while he splashed and paddled around. He had so much fun and he tired himself out each night. Now his grandfather had a different idea of what to do at the pool. He would climb into the hot tub and relax until it was time to go to our room. They each enjoyed the water in a different way. Even now I am not sure who had the most "Water Fun" on that vacation.

So, ok here is mine:

Tracy, I'm with you. I'm already stumped as to who to vote for. I can't seem to leave anyone out. I love the LO's. I love the journaling even more. They are all fanastic.



06-16-2011, 10:45 AM
I'm with you, too (or three? LOL) - I just had a quick look through the gallery, not enough time to look in depth and comment but the layouts have me completely awed! So much talent!! Can I call in sick when it's time to vote???? I really don't want to decide....
