Pool Party

Hey!  I'm back for the third day in a row with another project!  It's been pretty busy around here this week!  Sunday we attended a "super awesome" (Kayne's current favorite saying when something is cool and/or fun) birthday pool party.  The birthday boy was turning 6 and his mom rented an inflatable pool complete with water slide.  I have to say that "super awesome" absolutely did apply!  I decided to make a pool/water themed card to accompany the gift.  

I picked a Simply B Stamps Teen Scene image because I never seem to get to play with my SBS images and I love them!  This is Pool Time Miller from the Teen Scene Summer collection.  I colored him with Copics and cut him out using my Classic Circles die from Spellbinders.  I then sponged some clouds behind him.  The current Simply Challenged theme is "Heavy on the Embellishments" so I went all out!  I used the Spellbinders Crown Circles die to make a "sun" and a MFT cloud die as well.  The waves are a Fiskars punch and I wrapped baker's twine around then for a little something extra.  I also added a bottle cap, a spiral clip, a sticker, a metal circle sentiment, and a few gems in the corners.  Papers are Little Yellow Bicycle - Splash.  My layout is Bearly Mine Challenge's Monthly Sketch (#97).

The birthday boy was more impressed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures and Lego set that were his present, but his mom appreciated the card!  And, as you can see, what an awesome pool party it was!  I was almost wishing I'd brought my suit...  lol  Almost.

Speaking of pools, we've also been going to Kayne's very first swimming lessons this week!  Look at my small man go!

Tomorrow is my birthday and the start of a brand new decade!  I wonder what adventures it will bring...  Birthday week has been fun so far!  Have you joined The Corrosive Challenge and Sassy Studio Designs yet for the 80s to the Max blog hop?  If not, head over to one of the blogs for all the details!  There are prizes galore and a FREE SSD digi for joining the challenge!

Happy Birthday! Your card is so bright and cheery and I love your take on the sketch you have used.
My two oldest can now swim and it is so nice not to have to be quite so paranoid around water:) Your son is adorable!
