Lifeguard


I know, I know...it's been a while. But I'm back to blogging and can finally share my first project for The Cut Shoppe! Isn't that lifeguard stand the best?! I serendipitously captured this photo a couple of summers ago, when Chris was on the pool deck, working ONE of his summer jobs. (He also drove delivery for Jimmy John's Sandwich Shop, fitting one schedule around the other.)


I had to use this cute quote I found: "Don't make me use my lifeguard voice!" Hahaha.

That awesome lifeguard stand is from this cut file:

 

After cutting the stand from white, wood-look paper, I added another dimension by piecing a life preserver from red and white cardstock. It's the perfect touch!


The Make A Splash cut file, provided my page with a whimsical sun:


By adhering only the center of the sun to my page, its "rays" are left to curl up slightly. And finally, a banner, fashioned out of polka dot kraft tape and embellished with red crosses. 


Supplies: Patterned paper-American Crafts, Carta Bella, Crate Paper; Stickers-Crate Paper; Ephemera-Crate Paper; Envelope-Fancy Pants; Flair-Scraptastic; Chipboard letters-Jillibean Soup; Chipboard word-American Crafts; Kraft paper tape-Jillibean Soup.

Fun stuff, huh?! Now if only I could sneak a photo of Kevin as he works. I've got to be stealthy. ;)
