Guest Designer for Whimsical Wednesdays - "Aquaholics"

Hello all, I am so excited and thrilled to be a Guest Designer at Whimsical Wednesday this week for their challenge to create a layout that has to do with "humor".  I love all the different challenges that they have each week.  They are so much fun and inspirational.  I am honored to be joining this amazing Design Team this week!


Now for this week's challenge, "Sense of Humor", it could be interpreted by incorporating funny pictures or cuts/images or by words that have to do with humor.  I decided to be inspired by some very funny pictures of my husband and friend at his birthday party last year.  You see, after lots of drinks, they decided to have a jumping contest into the pool.  Let me remind you, these are grown men and they thought they were Spiderman or Karate Kid... the pictures say it all!  Every time I see them, I crack up.  So I thought they would be perfect for this challenge.  


I decided to look into my sketch folder and found one that worked with these four photos.  The next thing was to come up with a great title for these hilarious photos.  This took a while, I didn't seem to come up with the right one, but then I remembered a name of a boat I saw recently that I loved and I knew I needed to use on a layout and it just worked perfectly for these pictures.  So with my title, AQUAHOLICS, the layout came together.  Now, I used these chipboard letters I've had forever and as soon as I got to the last letter, I realized that I didn't have an "s" - I hate when that happens!!!  So I had to rig it and I did so by manipulating an & sign.  I added a couple embellishments and voila!  Here's the layout...

So be sure to join in on the fun at Whimsical Wednesday and enter the challenge!
I hope you've enjoyed my layout (and my funny photos!).  Thanks for stopping by!
Be sure to leave a comment and let me know you were here!  I hope you come back tomorrow for yet another layout you won't want to miss (with some other funny photos)!

  1. I am so excited to see you are the guest designer! LOVED finding your blog last week. You create amazing stuff and this is no exception. So funny, love the title. I am definitely an aquaholic and that is my new favourite word. Love the mix of patterned paper and the way the middle photo is offset from the run of photos. Looks fantastic!
