Swimfan (NOT) layout

I can't believe it I must be on a creative roll these last couple of weeks. This is my 2nd scrapbook layout this week, plus I made an ATC, birthday card and gift tag within the last 14 days. This layout is actually my 1st scrapbook layout specifically for my youngest daughter. The title "Swimfan NOT" is borrowed from the movie titled "Swimfan." The reason for this title is because this was my youngest daughter's 1st swimming experience and that look on her face never changed. She didn't seem to like it or dislike it. We all just laughed at her and she continued to be expressionless.

Here are a couple close ups:

I used these items to create this layout (all of which was in my stash):
  • wave pattern paper
  • Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page - Deco Fan
  • white, blue and orange cardstock
  • Sesame Street Seasons Cricut cartridge - beach ball
  • Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge - scallop circle cut for small photo
  • ZooBalloo Cricut cartridge - waves
  • white plastic flowers - I have had for who knows how long
  • blue felt flowers - and again I have had for who knows how long
  • orange and blue brads
  • foam squares
  • BasicGrey Oh Baby Girl scrapbook kit - "Swimfan" - and again I have had for who knows how long 
  • DCWV The Spring sticker combo stack - "NOT" - and again I have had for who knows how long
I am entering my Swimfan (NOT) layout in the following challenges and linky parties:
