Another Vacation Layout

I wish I was faster at getting these layouts done. It seems like it was such a long time ago that we even went on vacation! I guess because I've been pretty busy since we got back, that it's taking me a while to get them done. I've got them all done in my head, if only I could show you what they look like :)

This one is of our trip to Ripley's Aquarium. I can't say it enough, if you go to the Smoky Mountains, you really should visit the aquarium too. The girls loved it (the adults did too)! Any way, back to the details: The background paper is from the Paper Studio 180 pack, the cardstock is stuff I have on hand (can't remember the brand but I got it at Sam's club) I used my Cricut and Design Studio for the title (Opposites Attract for lettering and Stretch Your Imagination for the turtle) I outlined the title with my Cricut markers first, then I cut out the design. If you would like the .cut file or further instruction on how I did this please send me an email, I'd be happy to share. The other turtle on this page was done with the Life is a Beach cartridge. I jazzed it up with some Studio G glitter glue. The rest of the glitter on the page is Stickes. I dressed up the edges of all the photo mats with my Fiskar's wave edge punch. I added water color Dew Drops to look like bubbles.

Cricut items and Dew Drops are available from me, in my store.
