School Days

Hi there,

Here's a layout that was submitted at Soul Scrappers for their Around the World - Argentina Challenge (ATW10).  You can see the challenge here.

Simply create your page using inspiration from the following photos:

This is the page I created which is titled, "School Days."
The inspiration for my page was from the 4th photo shown above... the brightly colored yellow house.

The arrows point to where our grandson is in the photos.  The Annual Gym Show event was held every year for the grade school kiddos.  Different events are held for each grade level and they get to play games and show the variety of skills they learned for each event.

This particular year was Parachute fun!  The kids would all hold the parachute and fling it in the air and when it was up... they would take turns running underneath it to switch sides with another child.  Then they would put quickly wrap it around them so we only saw their legs... and another time only their heads were showing.  It was so cute to watch!  
The favorite was when the gym teacher pulled out the box of ping pong balls and threw them in the center of the parachute and they would fling them up in the air... and ping pong balls were everywhere!  They would keep doing this until all the ping pong balls were out of the parachute.

When the games were completed... they would all gather towards the center, making the parachute flat.  

Supplies used:
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stampin' Up! Border Punch
EK Success Border Punch
Rick Rack
Foam Hands & Star
Pop Dots
Darice Embossing Folder
Washi Tape
Sketch: Page Maps

The arrow was adhered with pop dots.  The page title in the lower left was added onto an embossed circle with various stickers and foam hands around it.

A border punch was used on the left of the journaling block and rick rack added.  A small piece of yellow washi tape was added in the upper corner.

More rick rack and a foam star.  The center rick rack was added onto blue ribbon.

I used another arrow to show where his legs were sticking out.

A closer look at the arrow.
Here's a closer look at the page title cluster.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
