paper: Mail Room No. 1 and Naturally Krafty No. 3 paper packs by Katie Pertiet
wordart: from Chill Factor kit by Lynn Grievson
alpha: Golden Bay kit by Lynn Grievson, Metal Mesh Alpha by Katie Pertiet
mask: Border Templates No. 3 by Katie Pertiet
font: Good Dog Plain


for the text over the alpha, I took the tag/coaster element from Lynn’s kit and deleted the background paper with the magic wand, leaving text only. Then I was able to put the text on the alphabet and changed the blend mode until it worked.


journaling: The bucket dumper at the Y kiddie pool. Now that they’re not afraid of it, the boys love to stand underneath it and catch the waterfall with their faces.
