First Vacation Layout

  We were totally blessed last week to be at Cape San Blas Florida. Adrienne's in laws go every year for a family vacation. This year they had an extra bedroom and graciously invited us to go along. I am amazed at their awesome generosity. And it was such a blessing to have a weeks vacation with 3 of my grandsons. Right before I left my keyboard decided that I no longer needed some of the letters so I had to order another one. Thus I came home from vacation to a new computer with Windows 8.1 (which is new to me)and none of my files and my new camera had 600 photos to download. I finally have managed to get the new computer set up enough to edit photos and use my cutter, let the crafting begin!! Really got my fingers crossed that it will not take me another week to get the second vacation layout done.
   Without further ado, I used this sketch from The Memory Nest
 And here is my take
 This was the last day there and Jeff was catching fish fast and furious. This was the very first fish of the day. I love seeing the body language of the boys when they get excited to see the fish.. It wasn't long until he had caught so many they didn't even notice.
  I used MTC to draw the fish background and also to cut the lure and the sign for the title. The papers are Lori Whitlock " A Perfect Summer". It really felt good to finish a layout.

 Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing a moment with me. I am honored.
Hope today is filled with bright moments.


  1. Super page and I love all those fish outlines on the bakground paper. And a new computer with new software is a nightmare, the idea fills me with panic, so well done for get sorted so quickly.
