{Cool Summer Swimming} with the "Dive In" Classic Kit

Hello friends!  It's Meridy here, and I have a double page layout to share with you today using the "Dive In" Classic Kit.  As the name of this kit suggests, it is perfect to use with swimming photos.  This week the design team will be sharing layouts all about water, swimming, the beach, etc. 

I used a few 3x4 photos and one 4x6 photo of my kids swimming last summer on this layout.

I grabbed a few papers that used the same blues, pinks, and yellows in the photographs.  Once I choose the patterned papers, I pulled various coordinating embellishments from the kit. 

I really loved the flamingo trim, so I used it as a strip down the left hand side of my layout and cut a few flamingos from it to use as "stand alone" embellishments as well.

I wanted the look of rippling water, so I used some of my old decorative edge scissors to cut a few "waves" from various shades of blue paper.  I stacked those bits across the bottom border of my layout.

Next, it was time for me to add titles, journaling, and embellishments to the layout.  I started with my title "Cool Summer Swimming" and created it with a set of Thickers, a set of alpha stickers, and a chipboard sticker all from this month's kit.  Then I added a few enamel dots, some of the gold rub-ons, a few buttons, and some vellum stickers from the kit.

I added the same types of embellishments to the opposite side of the layout to balance the 2 sides of the layout.   I pulled a couple of extra buttons from my stash for this embellishment cluster.

I added a subtitle of "Making a Splash Jump" on this side of the layout to balance out both sides of the layout a little more.

And that wraps up this layout.  I would love to see what you create with your "Dive In" kits on Instagram #NoelMignon.  Have a great week!!!
