Time for this weeks layout using sketch #8 at Get Your Sketch On.
I used photos from our holiday to Turkey in 2008. We spent a day at a water park, and as we got there first thing in the morning, all the big water slides were relatively quiet, and the guys got lots of chances to ride them before the crowds came in later. Also, Tom was lucky in that the life guards were lenient towards him, as he was under the miminum age, but Mark persuaded them that Tom was a good swimmer (which he is) and he got a couple of shots. Later on, different life guards refused him, but he was happy that he got a shot!
This particular slide was like a whirlpool, and as you came down, you shot round the drum before falling through a hole in the bottom. It looked a bit scary, but they still wanted to ride it. Aah, the adrenaline always wins...!!
I used papers from the Scenic Route Grafton collection, and did alot of distressing, and stitching (both real and faux). The title was cut with my Cricut and SCAL2, and it was during the cutting that I realised that I needed a new blade... But the "distressed" edges to the letters actually fit in well with the rest of the page... I now have a new blade, and a couple of new mats, so hopefully the machine will cut cleaner now ;)
