Paradise




 My girls on their first cruise!  Graphic 45 tropical travelogue papers were the perfect choice for this LO.  This is my take on the Paper Mixing Bowl January sketch challenge. I also entered this LO into Scrapfit challenge workout #84 using the aquamarine and teal color. http://www.scrapfit.blogspot.com/   I used the roll technique to create the waves, bling for the fish air bubbles and my white space is more tan than white to give the illusion of sand on the beach.  This time of year we are all dreaming of warmer places!  Thank you for coming and taking a peek!

Here is a hidden journal card.

I just entered this layout into the ARTastic February challenge all about a beach.  Isn't this inspirational painting by Charles Meere gorgeous!!  It has so much color and activities taking place.  I just love it. http://artasticchallengeblog.blogspot.com.au/p/current-challenge.html
