I took the opportunity to scrap some pics of our recent cruise on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas. This double paged layout is of our excursion on Day 4 of our cruise. Our Port of Call was St. Thomas USVI and since we have been to St. Thomas before we decided to take a boat tour to St. John USVI. After the boat tour from St. Thomas to St. John we were able to spend a few hours at a beautiful beach at Hawk's Nest Bay. It was just like a little piece of paradise and we practically had it all to ourselves. We had a wonderful time soaking up the sun and the kids loved jumping the huge waves and swimming in the ocean! Unfortunately, I didn't get any good pics of the huge waves. For my layout I used Teresa Collins Tell your Story 12X12 papers. I used the NEW Journal it - Calendar Basics and NEW Document it - Days and Dates and the Insert it - 3X4 Insert Die-namics.
I created my title using the High-Rise Uppercase and Lowercase Alphabet Die-namics and I also used some of the letters and numbers from the Accent it - Calendar Components and Story Starters.
I added a few MFT Tangy Orange and Blue Raspberry buttons tied with Hemp cord here and there to embellish and cut a few small butterflies with the Butterflies Die-namics and Notched Tag Die-namics.
Here is the second page of the double spreed. I flipped the sketch to accommodate the pictures that I had and to change things up a bit. I also added a few little sentiments from three PI stamp sets and stamped them on pattern paper cut with the Sentiment Strips Die-namics.
I used the Insert it - 3X4 Insert Die-namics and the Journal It - Top 10 and the Accent it - Flags and Tags and Howdy Die-namics.
Here is a close up of a little embellishment that I made using the First Class Friend Stamps and Die-namics, the Accent it - Tags and Flags, and my Circle STAX Die-namics.
Here I used the Jumbo Fishtail Banner Die-namics, the Accent it Flags and Tags Die-namics and the cute little heart die from the Accent it - Calendar Components.
