Make Waves

 I made this LO for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Kraft Challenge. I used the box my cell phone came in, thanks FedEx! LOL! I feel like I just got an Oscar and thanking FedEx! LOL! The picture is of Tammy taking a picture of Tyler & Scott at Ft Macon State Park/Atlantic Beach! I didn't zoom in on Tyler, because my when the sun is shining so bright it's hard to see thru the little peep hole/viewer on my camera. I think the pic turned out great as is!! The paper is Colorbok Bright Ideas and I thought the waves/swirls on the page would be perfect with the pic! The title- "Make Waves", subtitle- "a change of scenery". and wave/swirl on the left are K&Company and I colored them with my Candy Shoppe pens and Gel Roller Clear Star pen! :) The word "sunshine" is Making Memories Clear Stamps Flutter, the sun sticker is Hallmark, the bling & swirl on the right  is Sticko Rainbow Swirl, the flip flops were a RAK, the surf's up sticker is Sticko that I've had for awhile- I don't remember the collection, and t he blue strip behind the journaling is Colorbok Bright Ideas. I tried to stick to the same colors- blue, green, & silver and added yellow, orange & red after adding the flip-flops! I used "a change of scenery" because Daddy, Tammy, & Tyler were here visiting, at the time, from CT after seeing so much snow! God makes the waves, not us, so I chose that title since there are waves in the pic! The journaling states that "Tyler started liking the beach this past Labor Day and was watching the waves. The water was too cold & the weather was actually pretty nice!" I realized afterwards that it wasn't Labor Day, it was Thanksgiving 2010, because Scott didn't go with us Labor Day! Oh, well! I let my secret out! LOL! I didn't want to change it after I already had it glued down!

I'm getting excited about the Newsboys concert coming next Friday night!! I can't wait! I've never seen them in concert! They've changed band members more than any other Christian group, but I still kept up with them since 1993! Shine was the first song I remember of theirs! 8 Days!! March 9th can't get here fast enough!! :) TFL & Happy National Pancake Day!!
