Anchor's Away

Monday, July 20, 2015

Hey Good Morning! It's time for a new Issue at Paper Issues. Today we have a fun one for you, a Chip off the Old Block,  sponsored by Paper Issues. If you play along, you have the chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Here are some ideas you can use: use chipboard, activities to keep kids from saying they're bored, being "on board" a ship, surf board, family traits (chip off the old block), use July, August or Chip Off the Old Block printables that will be in the store this morning.

If you are not familiar with Paper Issues, here are just a few places to look them up:

For my page, I used one of the printable that Danielle created for this issue. I got so excited when I saw the large anchor. My sister and son went on a nautical adventure last summer and this gave me several ideas.  I grabbed the Fancy Pants Making Waves collection. I knew there was a deep navy and some anchors in there too. (By the way, anchors are something I didn't see my self being able to use. Glad I was able to change that.) I also grabbed a few die cuts from last years Fancy Pants Nautical Collection. The page name together quickly. I cut the title on the Silhouette and that was it.

Yes, these two had quite the adventure. They were treated to a day aboard the USS Spruance Naval Destroyer last summer during Navy Days. They toured the ship, learned it's history, and even ate with the sailors. That is something special to remember.
