Kickin' it at the lake

This weeks challenge at FCCB is an outdoor fun theme.  I choose to make a scrapbook page for the times we spend at the lake(s)!  We have 4 within 10 minutes of our house, 2 of them are private, but we know some people!  ;)   So we tend to cool off in the lakes,  sometimes we cool of in the Hood Canal (also 10 minutes from our home)  But the saltwater is more itchy and COLD!!!  So we like the lakes mo' betta.
 Here is my project.  (the white paper will be removed and pictures will be placed in those spots.)

BAHAHAHAHAHHA I kept looking at this thinking it looks so much like kitchen it at the lake or chicken it at the lake.  Why, why, why?  LOL I just realized it is supposed to be k-i-c-k-I-n'  So evidently my gypsy needs spell check on it.  Cause I am a HORRIBLE speller.  LOL  I guess I will be fixing this ASAP!  LOL  I crack myself up.  So just imagine that I can spell and then look at the page.  :)  Now that I think about it a bit more, I might just leave it to give myself a laugh whenever I look at it.

I was going to use the lake from camping critters and cut out all those trees and the dock and have them at the bottom of my paper.  Then I found this paper as I was looking for another one and it was PERFECT!  So I cut out the dock from Camping critters and used it but not any of the other cuts.

I used a child's year for the little girls.  I have four girls, so I really should have made 4 but it seemed kinda crowded on the gypsy, so I only made two.  I cut the legs off of the one in the water to make it seem like they were under the water.

Kickin' it is from printing press and at the LAKE!!! it from hello kitty font. (rounded)

I just used some markers and my own yucky handwritting to journal this.  It looks okay.  I just really like OTHER people's handwriting.   Oh well I tried.   My kids will know that I wrote it.  ;)

  6. Haha Jenae....I like Chicken at the lake...hehe! I agree that it would be awesome if the Gypsy had spell check! You would not believe how many times I go crazy thinking something doesn't look right only to find I spelled it wrong! The LO is awesome by the way! I love the way you did the dock with the little girls but aren't you missing a few? We also love going to the lake in the summer but this summer has been hard since Baby E likes to wonder. They know they have me outnumbered! Thanks for sharing this fun LO! I hope I can find this fabulous paper so I can scraplift it! Thanks for the smiles :)

  7. Super layout, Jenae! Those silhouettes look fantastic! I think I need to come and visit you and all your lakes. You must live in an absolutely beautiful area!
    I'm with you on the spell check for Gypsy!!
