Surf's Up!

March's photo inspiration challenge over at S J Crafts got me scrapping with some photos that have been in my "to scrap" pile for a LONG time. No.1 Son had a wind-surfing course with his first ever girlfriend back in 2006, but as they broke up shortly afterwards it seemed inappropriate to be scrapping photos of her!  I think his heart has recovered by now, especially as he's currently house-hunting with his current squeeze.

Jimjams - Layout - Surf's Up! for SJ Crafts

Jimjams - Layout detail - banner stickers & "Blossom" alphas
The papers in Crate Paper's Boys Rule collection were a great match for the sails and the banner & pennant stickers were perfect for a nautical theme.  I love how the starry vellum tones down the stripes and adds extra interest.
Initially I cut the title letters (using QK Blossom dies) from one of the journalling cards that matched the stripy paper, but decided that using the coloured stripes themselves was more eye-catching against the white cardstock.

This month Annie is offering a prize for one lucky challenge joiner-inner - check the details here.

Keen readers will remember that I promised a prize for having a go with the S J Crafts' February sketch.  The winner is announced over at S J Crafts here - along with a couple of favourite sketch interpretations.

Lovely LO Jemma. I'm sure DS will have gotten over his broken heart by now and this colourful LO does justice to what must have been a fun time in his life.

I love this layout - your cute little banner and as you know, that starry vellum.
I love even more that I won! Thank you, I have left a comment over there too!

Tricky subject but yes I'm sure he's recovered if he's house hunting :) I like that banner especially the curls in the string.
