Beach Day

The sun is not out today, and I am itching for Spring!  So, I pulled out my Surf's Up paper and delved right into the heart of summer.  This is such great paper, so I thought I'd scrap some of the photos from our excursion in Grenada.

On cloudy days, I struggle with good photos of 2-page layouts, and this is really so much nicer in person!  On this excursion, we had a little nature walk before actually spending time at the beach.  There wasn't much nature to speak of along the way rather it was a hot walk to a very secluded beach.  However, Jerry and I were just okay with that!  The really beautiful part of nature was the Caribbean Sea at the end of the walk.  Jerry and I really are like two kids when it comes to water.  We love being in the water, and we're not afraid to shed our shoes, get our clothes a little wet, and just plain enjoy the journey.

You must know by now that one of the things I love about CTMH is that everything matches.  For someone like me that loves to cluster, it is a paper dream come true!

I've used the April Stamp of the Month with sorbet and goldrush ink (stamps are GREAT embellishments - and when April rolls around, you will see loads of this set!), Wooden Mini Medleys, Trinket Wooden Shapes, the Surf's Up assortment, and brown & tan sparkles.  The letters are the Irresistibles Houndstooth Alpha that I colored with sorbet ink.

Little by little you'll get to see this wonderful cruise in layouts!  I hope you are having a most blessed day!

What a SPLENDID layout!There are so many things I love about this one. Centering everything across the two pages make this such an eye-catching a visually appealing layout ... not to mention your knack for clustered embellies! You made the sun shine for me today. Thanks!
