July 15th Challenge

I started this accordian mini album with a 12x12 piece of solid blue cardstock from DCWV.  I cut it into 2 pieces 6x12 and glued them together after folding them every 4".
For the cover page I sanded the solid paper and used Lettuce ink pad by Ranger.  For the background sheet I cut a piece of glossy photo paper and used alcohol inks (Gold, Lettuce, Slate, and Meadow).  I used clear studio G stamps from Michael's for the lounger and relax.  Then used bubble letters for the title.
For this page I used photo real paper that looked like water and used the Puzzle Frame from Sizzix that I had cut a long time ago.  I placed it on a lighter blue background cardstock.
This page I cut a piece of glossy cardstock and used alcohol inks (Eggplant, Slate, Lettuce, and Silver).  I used a metal tag and attached a Ocean color snap to hold it in place.  I wrote the title Learning to Swim and drew the bubbles. 
I cut the waves from Life's a Beach at 1 1/2" and then ran them through the Cuttlebug using D'Vine Swirls.
I cut the bikini and shorts from Life's a Beach at 1 1/2".  I added polka dots to the bikini with a black Sakura Glaze Pen and added two hibiscus flowers to the shorts with Sakura souffle pens.
