Adventure 41

Hello! Hope you are enjoying the weekend! We don't have any big plans, simply enjoying being home :) Last week, Scott and I were at our home away from home in San Diego relaxing and while there, we went to the International Sand Sculpting competition. Wow! What talent!!!

Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of Meredith and I that was taken while on a trip 9 years ago while vacationing on Maui. Time flies!!!
I made my own background paper using the Gelli Arts plate and various colors of acrylic paints. I cut 4 strips of the paper then stamped and heat embossed one of the beautiful designs from Textile Backgrounds. I also stamped the chicken wire image from Distressed Background Blocks as well as several images from Washi Patterns
I embellished the layout with a single hibiscus bloom from Tropical Sensations as well as two beautiful butterflies made using Fancy Butterflies:
For color and other tidbits, I joined along with the Color Stories Inspiration challenge #87:
The Scheme: Use ALL 5 colors (done)
The Evidence: Use at least 2 clues
butterflies, arrows, stitching
The Testimony: Write about a trip / Make your journal wander across the page
wrote about a trip to Maui and made the journaling wander

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with SCRAPfriends
Many thanks for visiting ~ Hope you enjoy the weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
