Swim lessons

It's been a while since I made my own embellishments...
Lilybee Homemade papers; Scenic Route paper; Jillibean Soup buttons and felt flower; American Crafts card stock and Thicker glitter alphabets; Studio G glitter glue; Stampin' Up! scalloped circle punches; Eyelet Outlet gold star eyelets; WRMK Cropadile and embroidery floss; BoBunny brad.
 I added gold glitter glue to the felt flower and punched scalloped circles.
 I punched the scalloped circles from the background papers, under the photos.
I later added a red button to the right side of this banner because I thought it was missing something...

This layout was inspired by Creative Scrappers' sketch # 306, which I rotated counter-clockwise and expanded to a 2-pager:

I also used the Stuck?! May 1 sketch (again):
