Fortunately, there's a stamp set to recreate this memory! The Lilypad Lake stamp set (#146496) and the coordinating Lakeside dies (#146351) are retiring the end of this month, so I enjoyed using it for this challenge. I colored the bird like a great blue heron, and created a regatta with the sailboats:
For the background, I did a soft Blueberry Bushel wash on a piece of Shimmery White card stock and stamped the ripples in Mint Macaron on the bottom two-thirds of the sheet. The sailboats were stamped in Blueberry Bushel, colored with Blueberry Bushel and Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Markers, die cut and adhered to the "lake". The top Mint Macaron layer was embossed with the new Old World Paper 3D embossing folder (#153200, available June 3). Then an oval window was die cut out of this piece using the largest oval in the Layering Ovals die set (#141706). The great blue heron is watching from the shore amid the water plants die cut from Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce card stock.
