Summer Splash

I have had so much fun today playing with Cathy Krenek's soon-to-be-released SPLASH from Scrapbook-Elements. I was inspired by a few of my favorite summer songs, and I had the perfect photos for this kit from my Grandson Isaac's first swim. I just had to share them with you! I fixed a little play list as well so I hope you enjoy listening as you surf the web today!

"The Boys of Summer" is a song by Don Henley, written by Henley and Mike Campbell. It is the lead track and first single from Henley's 1984 album Building the Perfect Beast, and made the perfect page title for this cute page with the boys first experience in the swimming pool.
I was inspired by Spotted Dog Designs Template Topography no.7 for the layout design, and I used the Splash Kit as well as the Splash AddOn-a SBE July Posting Bonus

Eli (Isaac's little friend) is a very cool little guy! Here he is "Groovin' On A Sunday Afternoon"
with that adorable little butt crack shining, lol! Groovin' is a song from 1968 by The Rascals.

Summertime Blues, a song about the trials and tribulations of teenage life was recorded by Eddie Cochran in 1958 (Wikipedia). I changed some of the words to fit Isaac's obsession with his pacifier, even in the pool.

No summer song mix is complete without songs by The Beach Boys. They recorded Fun Fun Fun in 1964 and Good Vibrations in 1966; both were written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love.

Summertime was composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess but it soon became a popular jazz standard. I love Janis Joplin's version but my favorite is by Fantasia. I used those lyrics for some photos of the Mommy's swimming in the big pool.

For a complete list of credits, you can check my galleries in the next few days as I will posting them after the release of the SPLASH kit by CathyK Designs on Sunday at Scrapbook-Elements. And, in case you missed it, there is a little Splash QP freebie I made on the previous post!

Happy Scrappin!
