Froggy Frog JUMP So HIGH...

"Froggy Frog touch the sky!"
(and then you jump in the pool)
That is the chant the kiddos learned at swim school years ago.
After Ian and Daddy went back n forth over WHO was going to go off the diving board; Ian clearly just wanted to watch Daddy and wanted NO part of walking the white rectangle let alone bouncing off of it. It was time to make jumping into the pool fun!
"Come on Ian, let's start here on the side, you be a froggy."
He started with a noodle, but the security it provided wasn't necessary for long!
Soon Ian was making like Kermit!
He was having such a hopping good time the girlies could not resist getting in on the action too!
Showcasing frog stature, frogs mid jump, frog legs, and frog tongues...
it all had the mama frog hopping for her camera!
And then up in the studio paper piecing frogs
(not for eBay this time~ARTish Paper Piecings on eBay)
but to go with this week's Pixie Cottage Challenge #25

Here is the complete (very layered) layout I created to share our 'pond' with you...

The frogs will be entering these challenges:

This is the Sketch Pam designed this week as part of the challenge.

Be sure to link back your new creations to
The Pixie Cottage Challenge #25 for a chance to win!!

I have highlighted the 3 portions of my layout where I included Pam's Sketch.

En lieu of the lower flower I have 3 designer made to match swim wear

Love You This Much FROGs by ARTish



and Sierra...

(pink of course!)

Below the closeups of them catching flies I layered a ripple of watery beads...I added to the sleek feel of froggies using Glossy Accents...
So next time you go swimming why just walk in using the steps!?
Remember our little chant! ;)

It's sure to make you smile!

Have a wonderfully safe, fun and creative rest of the summer!
(stay tuned~ I have a feeling some little froggy is getting brave enough for the diving board!!)
