Using a sketch from Sketch Support (number 18), I FINALLY scrapped Laim and the dolphins. I've started this layout so many times and never finished it, as I never liked how it was turning out. I'm still not sure it is amazing, but I at least like it. The wave paper is from Paper Studio. The dot is from My Mind's Eye,a nd the stripe is from a cheapy kit that I bought way back when I first started scrapbooking. The dolphin/wave border was cut with Cricut's Life's a Beach cartridge at 11.5". The large dolphin was cut at 4:, and the "Splash" is 1.5". The water drops were hand cut in various sizes. I used Cuttlebug's spiral embossing folder to give it texture. The waves were sprayed with Stampin Up's vanilla shimmer Smooch Spritz. Diamond and silver Stickles add sparkle to the dolphins and droplets, and I also used Glossy Accents to give the dolphins a wet shine.

Anniversary Scavanger Hunt
Today was my anniversary, and since we wanted an off-beat way to celebrate, we went on a scavanger hunt for found objects and found letters to spell our name and est date. Hoping this works to show what we found today! I am still new to using 4 share to share documents! If it does work, this is a link to out scavanger hunt results. We want to go back out, as we aren't sure we love the "u" or "a." I'm just playing with which letters look best--found objects or found letters and which go best together. The final project will have 4x6 photos matted to read our name.

Christmas Cards 2011

Here are our Christmas cards this year. They are pretty simple, but when making 25+ of anything, simple is good! The embossing plate is from Cuttlebug. The snowflake edge punch is from Martha Stewart. The stamp is from Jolliest Time of the Year by Stampin Up. While the paper is not Stampin Up, the ink that matched it was: Cherry Cobbler. The butcher's twine is from Martha Stewart, and the glitter is diamond stickles.
