Tropical Vacation

Isn't this background paper pretty.  It caught my eye immediately.

I matted the photo with vellum and twisted a length of ribbon randomly with some pretty white flowers.
The Palm Tree is by Jolee's.

Bird Watching

Bird watching is one of Turbos favourite things to do.  Whenever Rick hauls out the ladder to fill the birdfeeders (which is every couple of days, those greedy birds) Turbo is right there following him up the ladder.  I'm worried Rick is going to trip on him one day and fall. 

I even used some stamps on this layout.  The red cardstock has leaves stamped on it. The butterflies are also stamps.  The rest of the brown images are rubons.

This layout is up in Unforgettable Memories at the moment.

Making Memories Great Escape layout

This was one of those 1/2 hour layouts.  Mostly because the MM hibiscus foil from the Great Escape collection was perfect and didn't need a lot of extra embellishments.  The little flags are from the same collection.

I had some Prima flowers that matched the foiling.  I used one page out of the spiral journaling Just Chillin' MM book under the photos and a strip of the blue varnished postmark paper from the Passport Collection. 
I added a MM rub-on and some MM travel tags and called it done :)

Day is Done

Some more photos from Tan's Mexican vacation.  I called it Day is Done because obviously these are evening photos. 
I used one of my large Glimmer Screens and Pink & Gold Glimmer Mist on my black background.  The edges of the layout are painted with a white paint dauber and then I stamped a text stamp on it.  It looks really neat close up.

River Nymphs.

As soon as I spotted this Karen Foster reed paper I thought of this photo.  Breanna and I friend swimming in a reedy back channel on the Peace River.  Tikanii enjoyed all the warm water too.

I cut the doily in half and used some metal tape to create a banner at the top. 
The transparency under the photo is 7 gypsies.
MM tag and MME tag.
K&Co butterflies.
And, of course, a few Prima blooms.

A tropical 2 page layout

I played at the Colour Room again.  I thought this colour combo would be perfect for Tanis' pictures of the iguana at their resort.

The two pages aren't quite lined up properly.  The 'resort' sticker and 'scary' are supposed to be straight across.

The papers are Karen Foster and Bella Blvd with a Bazzill Cardstock base. I sprayed Frost Glimmer Mist over some paper doily masks for my background. And some grey magic mesh for texture. A Prima crochet doily, flowers and leaves.  MM journal pages and a wood frame.
