Day at the Races!!

I was browsing through some photos that have been laying around for a while, and decided to make a couple pages. Here's what I came up with using a page map from Got Sketch. I did rearrange the photos a bit so mine would all fit on the page. I printed the title on my computer, making it look like the word turtle was an after thought. I sponged the edges, then mounted it on Basic Black to make it stand out more.

I also printed the journaling on the computer, cut it out and sponged the edges. Then I mounted it on black to stand out more. I chose my favorite photo of each child and matted those on black, as well. The DSP is a combination of Summer Picnic and East Coast Prep. Both of those are retired, but I have to use up some retired papers before I can buy any new, know what I mean?

I got the idea for the punch art turtles here. Aren't they cute? They use all Stampin' Up! punches. It was my son Sammy's idea to use the googly eyes. I just happened to have some nearby!

Well, that's it for now. Enjoy your day and Happy Stampin'!
