First of all, please don't ask me what NOSS is. I have no idea what the heck it stands for. LOL. Nidhi was in this NOSS Sailing Championship last year, and I wanted to document that. :)

I have a 'water' challenge on the October Afternoon blog - please do check it out if you have time to scrap! I know people are so busy during the holidays, but sometime it's nice to have one rest day to do something solely for your self-enjoyment, don't you think?

The B side of Reference Section patterned paper from Public Library reminds me of the sea, so I decided to use that as my background paper. I cut my white cardstock into sections and stitched them back onto the background paper to create some interest rather than having a flat white background with a border. This must be my favorite thing to do nowadays, I've done this many times lately. :)
For my photo focal point, I layered Corn Maze, vellum, Bonfire pp and a couple of tabs. I playfully stamped one of the tabs because that's what this layout is about. My daughter, playing at sea. I believe we can learn so much while playing and it's not like I want her to go out and earn a living as a sailor, so this was play. :)
I used Daily Flash Navigate alphas for my title. Just how perfect is that for my layout? I squealed out loud when I realized that as I usually start my layout with a photo + story, not products. Such a happy coincidence! I hid my journaling underneath the photo cluster and finished my layout with a printed circle tag and a sprinkle of Pop Drops
I hope you'll play along with Mandy and I. Share what you make with us in the OA Flickr Gallery You can also share with us on Instagram. Use the hashtag #octoberafternoon and tag me @sashafarina as I'd love to see your take on this challenge!
