Aye, Aye Captain

I got a little time to scrap just for fun (not that DT layouts aren't fun, but you know what I mean) when Tracee was here. I used a couple of challenges over at A Cherry on Top as inspiration. One was a 3-word title challenge, which also required some stitching, and the other was a "my mood challenge" which was to use red, white, and blue plus stars and stripes. Here's my layout:

Tracee and I used the same photos from our trip to the Chesapeake Bay and challenged ourselves to use this sketch:

And some details. The ship's wheel is a Silhouette cut file. Those letters are by K&Co. I've had them in my stash forever. The anchor brad is by Teresa Collins

I raided my stash to find stuff that would go with the theme of my page and found this Heidi Swapp chipboard palm tree that's probably been in my stash for ten years. The tag was cut from a Pink Paislee (Atlas Collection) paper. I added some jute and a silver anchor charm for some texture.

That pelican is from an old October Afternoon sticker sheet. The little crab was cut from an Echo Park paper from the Under the Sea collection. The puffy starfish, I think, is Jolee's. The wood veneer stars are by Studio Calico. 

I always love challenges because they give me a great starting place and often get me going through my stash to discover things I might not have used!

Holy Crab! {CSI Case File No. 234}

We've got a brand-new challenge over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Here's the page I made using photos of Tracee and me goofing around with my selfie stick. We were in Chestertown and there were a bunch of sculptures sticking out of the water. We thought it would be amusing to make some "scared" faces in front of this giant crab claw.

Here's the Case File. Clues I used. Evidence: animals transparent stuff, dashed lines, triangles, rub-ons, plus signs, sun, scallops. Testimony: Document a summer getaway.

Here are some details. The cute little puffy starfish is a Jolee's sticker. The triangles in the background are rub-ons by K&Co, and the plus signs were made with texture paste and a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop. 

The little fish were cut from and Echo Park paper.  The flair badge is from A Flair for Buttons.

Here's another puffy sticker from that Jolee's pack. So cute with the googly eyes, and a little shimmery too.

I hope you'll come play with us. You can see Tracee's page with the same photos in our reveal. And don't forget--we have seven sponsors donating awesome prize packs and gift certificates for our players:
