My original plan was to use up the rest of the paper that I used on the last layout, but as you can tell, that didn't happen!! Another layout without ANY patterned paper on it. What is this world coming to? LOL! There is, however, something much more special on this layout. The sand at the bottom of the page was taken right off the beach, just steps from our room at the Grand Pineapple Resort in Long Bay, Antigua. The sand there is very "shelly" and if you look close enough you can see the little bits of crushed shells in the sand. I had to get this on the page quick while John was still out golfing!! He is the one who always "steals" sand from wherever we go and then we put it in small jars labeled with the location. If he knew I took sand for a scrapbook layout, he would not be happy! LOL! Needless to say, I won't be showing him this page until he sees it in the book, and at that time I'll just tell him its sand from the beach at home! LOL! Hopefully he won't read the journaling!! The "F-U-N" stickers, the two shells and the tag at the top are what was left from the embellishment sheet by Little Yellow Bicycle! I rarely use EVERY item in a package so this felt good! No leftovers! The title letters are a font called LD Geneiveve and cut on my Cricut out of Whitewash Coordinations cardstock which I then embossed with a swirl/wave design and sanded to let the coral color show through a little. This layout looks MUCH better in real life...I couldn't get a decent photo at all without the photos looking to washed out or two dark, of which neither the original photos are!
Ok, enough from Antigua for today! John just got home from a golf tournament and put dinner on the grill! BBQ ribs are slow cooking for the next 2 hours, fresh Jersey corn and tomatoes....can't wait for dinner!
Oh, and no sketch for this one....did this one all by myself! LMAO! But it does qualify for the Monthly Challenge at Practical Scrappers which is to use something you would bring to or find on the beach! I'd say sand covers that...and the regular weekly challenge which is embossing.
