Be Yourself

Our family had so much fun on our vacation to Monterey/Pacific Grove! I got a few shots of us being silly at Asilomar Beach.  I wanted these funny photos to be the focus of the layout so I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  Also with 5 large pictures I didn't want the layout to get to busy.  I used a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and am entering it in this weeks challenge there as well as the challenge at Whimsical Wednesday.


Here is the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:


For Whimsical Wednesday the challenge this week is to design a scrapbook page, any theme of your choice, but it must include something interactive.

I put my silly smiley face on a pig tails chipboard spring, so it would move.



A close up shot of the title.


Supplies used: cardstock - blue, green, light grey; patterned paper - Barefoot Word in Barefoot 7 bliss by Bo Bunny; journal sticker - Remarks by American Crafts; pig tails chipboard spring by Piggy Tails; title and face cut at 2 1/2" with Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge, sewing machine.

Hope everyone had a great start to their week!
