Flowrider | Inspiration

Hi there!

Laura here today sharing my latest DT page for Evalicious today.


As always I started my layout by cutting and pasting my patterned papers into place, finding inspiration from a recent PageMaps sketch, this step most often comes together really quickly for me.


Then I spend some time playing with embellishments.


And with the great products at Evalicious,  it really isn't hard to find a fun combination of wood veneers, badge buttons and puffy stickers etc.


As you can see, I love layers of patterned papers AND layers of embellishments.


You know that there is a story behind every photo, so remember to journal even if it's only a bit.  The story for this page is about a boy that wanted to ride this Flowrider so desperately, it was  pretty much the first thing he did when we took a Caribbean cruise back in 2013.  Children were only allowed to go up onto their knees (no standing allowed), he was the first child to try - and many adults were there trying to decide if they should try.  After only a few minutes he was able to move up onto his knees, no small feat mind you.  The crowd cheered and applauded, it was awesome for him!  Almost worth the price of the cruise right there! ha!

Such a cute layout! I love the papers and, of course, all of the Evalicious stuff. They had one of these surfing simulators when we were on holidays in Mexico. So much fun! My son was on it every day, too. I could body surf on it, but impossible to stand up.
