Boogie Board Fun!

Hello crafty friends! Today's post is another scrap book page. As a Christmas gift, I was given a 3-month subscription to the Hip Kit Club! I was pretty excited about that and the first box arrived earlier in the week. It didn't take me long to start creating with it.

I don't know if you've ever considered a kit club, but Hip Kits are very good kits for the money in my estimation. This kit came with supplies that aren't available at most of the common stores yet and it's fun to use new things to wet your creative appetite. This kit came with the following supplies:

So on to my project. I'm always about 2 years behind real time so now I'm working on 2012 mostly but also finishing up some random pages in 2010 and 2011 along with an occasional current year page. This photo of my son was one of my faves for the year. He was so enjoying boogie boarding on a Myrtle Beach, SC vacation. It was a new experience for him and he caught on to it right away. Everything I used here was from the January Hip Kit except for the three glitter brads and a crayola marker I used to spritz the two corners of the cloud paper with my Crayola Marker Airbrush. I altered one of the watercolor die cut words with blue glitter embossing powder as well. I was at first a little challenged with attaching the clear acetate words and arrows. I tried first the Xyron machine and that failed miserably because it showed through bad and looked dirty. So I cleaned all that adhesive off with Goo Gone and went to cutting mini-glue dots in half so they were small enough to fit behind the smallest printed elements. You can still see the glue if you look hard on some of them but that's ok. I was happy with the results. For the day phrase under Best Ever, I altered the actual word which was everyday. Don't ever be afraid to alter something to better fit your need like this.

Hope you enjoyed today's project. Until next time, happy crafting!
