Just DO It!

When Kevin began swimming a few short years ago, there were things he never thought he'd accomplish: flip turns, diving head first, and swimming a legal butterfly! Hee-hee. Well now he's done all these and more. At a meet late last year, he swam the 100 fly and cut time twice in one day! I happened to catch him mid-stroke during his swim and used the photo, along with a larger one of the LSU facility, on the page below. I LOVE the colors in this collection, especially the deep blue chevron and aqua dot prints, perfect for pool pics! 

Pebbles' Happy Day collection has a few journal cards and stickers that refer to typical weekend activities (or lack thereof, i.e. sleeping in and relaxing). They had me thinking about OUR typical weekend, and swim meets naturally came to mind. No, we don't get to sleep in. In fact, it's just the opposite with early morning warm ups! It's our get up and go weekend activity. 

The arrows below are not just a decorative element. They represent all the laps my son swims, day in and day out at practice. They could also represent the 100 fly, the event he is seen swimming in the small photo at the bottom of the page. 

A fun element, purely decorative, is the cluster of overlapping banners: 

An arrow sticker is strategically positioned over the small photo, pointing to my swimmer:

Finally, journaling and title work together to tell the rest of the story:

I'm so glad that Kevin continues to love and work hard at his swimming. It's fun to see his progress!
