At the pool - lo & a sneak peak

A photo from our last vacation. We went to Eilat, and we had wonderful time together. We went to hotel we've been to for several times in the past and we like it a lot. The boys swam all the time, dived in the water, ate icecream as much as they wanted (and the younger ate a lot! LOL). It was a real great vacation.
For the basis of the lo I used a backing of a paper package I bought a while ago. I painted the edges with yellow acrylic paint and stamped it with foam stamps.
The matting, the paper for the title and journaling, and the tag for the date - are all BG.
I made the banner myself out of scraps I had. The transparency stripe over the right upper corner and the bashful blue tag on the bottom - are recycled, they were tags of the swimsuits I bought for the kids... I also used two orange brads - one on the gingham ribbon, and the other one, tiny one, on the transparency stripe.

I'm entering this lo for the following challenges:
sketch plus color combo - pagemaps
colors - delightful sketches; #15 otwc; the studio; #79 crafty pad (yellow, orange plus holes)
fav summer vacation destination plus brads - #32 peachy keen stamps
vacation - #41 if the shoe fits
no cards allowed - #18 the creative cottage;
It's a guy thing - #6 paper playtime
butterfly - #112 fluterby wednesday (a small orange butterfly on the yellow flower)
gingham - #24 basicgrey
shop inspiration - set of 5 aqua vintage glasses from Octavia & Brown's shop, #96 etsyinspired
photo inspiration - simon says
recipe - #74 the pink elephant (3 layers, 2 die cuts (the date tag and the tiny yellow tag), 1 ribbon); stamp something (1 dp - the matting is indian summer of BG, 1 riboon, 1 image)
recycle - #43 aifactory (the basis for the lo, the transparency stripe, the tag - all were with bought papers/cloth packages)

And for the sneak peak:

It's a mini album I've made
for my best friend's birthday,
Capturing some of our mutual moments
over the last 20 years.
Stay tuned, I'll post it in a short time....

Thanks for stopping by!

אחרי סדרת דפים וינטאג'יים חומים, הגיע הזמן לדף צבעוני ומקושקש.
זו תמונה מחופשתנו האחרונה באילת. נסענו למג'יק סאנרייז, מלון נהדר לחופשה עם ילדים (לא להתקרב לשם בחופשה רומנטית!....). בילינו רוב הזמן בבריכות, החיצונית והפנימית, והילדים נהנו מכל רגע במים, שחו וצללו ושיפרו את כישורי המים שלהם. הגלידה החופשית ליד הבריכה היתה אחת האטרקציות המלהיבות ביותר עבור הצעיר. זו הייתה חופשה נהדרת.
כבסיס לדף השתמשתי בדף אריזה של דפים מדוגמים. צבעתי את השוליים שלו בצבע אקרילי צהוב והחתמתי עם חותמות סול. והכל התחיל בגלל שלא מצאתי אצלי שום דף מדוגם שהתאים לי למה שרציתי. בסוף יצא דף עליז ושמח, בדיוק כמו שרציתי.
בכלל המיחזור חגג בדף הזה. הרצועה השקופה בפינה הימנית העליונה, וגם התג התכול בתחתית - שניהם תגים שנלוו לבגדי הים שקניתי לילדים.
את הבאנר יצרתי משאריות של דפים שהיו לי בסלסלת השאריות (מסתבר שכדאי לשמור גם שאריות קטנות, בסוף מוצאים מה לעשות איתן).
האותיות לכותרת הן אילתור מחיתוכי סול של ספרות.

והתמונה הנוספת, בסוף הפוסט באנגלית, היא של מיני אלבום שהכנתי ליום ההולדת של חברתי הטובה, שמשמר כמה מרגעינו המשותפים במהלך 20 השנים האחרונות. יצא מרגש מאד.

תודה שנכנסתן שוב לבלוג שלי להסתכל.
שיהיה שבוע נעים!
