Fabulous Fun - DT sketch 29 Scrap Africa

Today I’m sharing a layout as DT member at Scrap Africa.
Denise van Deventer has created this fun sketch.  
I hope you will come across and see what the DT have created.
You have two weeks to join in the challenge.
I’m still trying to make inroads into my stash 
and had fun combining these papers.
Carta Bella - Tossed letters (reverse) is the blue background
Carta Bella - Rough and tumble collection, “Floating boats” is the large circle
Carta Bella - Rough and tumble collection, “Border Strips” (reverse)
is the checked paper
Echo Park - All about a boy, “Rough and Tuff” (reverse) pale teal
I love these Heidi Swapp titles because they are not meant to be straight!
The wooden stars are from Cosmo Cricket
I painted them with Silks Acrylic - pale gold
The wooden arrows are from Freckled Fawn

The Journalling says:-
I think the look on your face says it all!  You were so excited to be in your big cousin’s pool with your Daddy. You jumped, squealed and splashed around like a little dolphin.  Happy days.   Love Granny   2nd Feb 2013
