Sail Away With Me Blog Hop

If the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility...

Now that video should really set the mood for our trip across the water!  Sail away with us to view nautical creations of all kinds by our lovely line up of crafters.  Today's hop should be smooth sailing! If the sails were set correctly you should have arrived from JEARISE.  Should you veer off course the first stop on your hop is Alicia and she can get you back in the right direction.

Now on with the hop!
 I decided to make a layout of myself standing on the edge of the ocean. The paper is from MAMBI/ Me & My Big Ideas Ocean kit as is the Relax sticker and the chipboard design at the top. The photo mats are Recollections kraft 4 x 6 stack collection. I bought the sequin trim from The Vintage Rose Emporium- it's a closed Facebook store/group, but I can request for you to join if you'd like. Kim's prices are reasonable and she sells some awesome scrap stuff! I used my XYRON Create a Sticker 150 to attach the trim and somehow it flipped when I ran it through. I decided not to include any journaling since the pictures speak for themselves. I would title the layout Down by the Sea Shore as imbedded in the bottom left corner of the paper.
Your next destination is KIM.  We hope your enjoying your journey!

I love that you made a layout of yourself. All the scrapbook pages I made and I never made any including was as if I didn't exist, LOL I love the background paper you used, perfect for this layout. The embellishment in the corner is great, too. Love the pictures, too! Loved hopping with you!

Your layout is so beautiful! I am from WI and only saw the ocean once in FL.

First of all, it's wonderful to see a layout of yourself. I always forget to do that! I also love the subtle paper pattern that doesn't overpower your beautiful photos.

Nice layout of the ocean and you. I love the picture of the wave by itself. That'as a nice touch. The pictures go nicely with the papers you used.
