Gone Fishing!.....Scrapping the Little Things w/My Creative Time!

Good Morning and Welcome to another Scrapping the Little Things with My Creative Time
Before I share my PL cards I just want to apologize for not being around all last week. I was home in bed with pneumonia :( My oldest has been sick since before the 4th of July with pneumonia and just finished his second round of antibiotics. Then my youngest got an ear infection. Well 2 rounds of antibiotics for him as well so you know I was bound to get something from those kiddos. All last weekend I was feeling worse and worse and Monday morning it hit me hard. Off to the Dr's, a chest xray later to confirm and home to bed for the week. I did manage to make it to my son's All Star game but even sitting out in the fresh air wore me out. I am happy to say (even with this annoying cough still) I am feeling better and got in a weekend of baseball too!

Now onto my PL cards...
My kiddos are so lucky to have inlaws that have a summer home on the lake. We try so hard to make it down there are much as possible and when we do go, the boys spend HOURS fishing both on the dock and in the boat with my father in law. When Emma released those adorable new fishy stamps and dies, I knew I had to scrap some of my favorite pics of the boys fishing!
These pictures were taken last summer (I know I am WAY behind in my picture scrapping..LOL) I used the Stitched Journal Die for the 3x4 pic and shaker and the larger 4X6 Journal Die for the larger pic.
The sentiments on the smaller picture was stamped from the set~Find Joy in the Little Things on one of the tags from the Fun Stitched Tag Dies set. The larger sentiment, from the same above set was stamped onto the banner from the Vintage Stitched Label Die. I did embellish that further by adding some silver thread behind the sentiment. Kinda looks like fishing line doesnt it?
For the final 3x4 pocket, I made a fish bowl shaker. I stamped, die cut and colored the adorable goldfish and placed him inside the pocket with some blue sequins, a colored plant and then added a layer of vellum to the top.
