Keep Paddling layout

We went canoeing to celebrate my Dad's 71st birthday recently (he went in a kayak!) and I had so much fun making this layout for some of the pictures of us on the river.   The circles with the paddles and life vest are from Camping Critters and the font is Plaintain Schoolbook Roly Poly-which I realized after cutting the letters did not have a shadow, so I cut the letters again in white and just offset them a bit to make them stand out more against the background.   The journal box is also a cut from Camping Critters with the fun little stamp from K Andrews Splashtastic Summer set.

I'm going to link this to the Getting Cricky challenge this month of "Summer Celebrations", for my birthday on the river pages :)
