These were taken on our honeymoon in St Lucia. We were riding in the waves and having a blast doing so. We didn't have surf boards so we were body surfing which was very different. I will give you a run down of what I used to create this LO. The paper I bought at Joann's I believe it was Little Mermaid but I loved the glitter background since it wasn't over whelming and the sea horses. I found some ribbon at Michaels in the dollar bin and used that as a border around my pictures. Crave the Wave was cut out from Life's a Beach cricut cart and then I stamped it with glue and used MS glitter. I love her glitter if you couldn't tell already. We had lots of coconuts trees near the beach so I found some stickers at Michaels and used them for this layout with the sun and birds. It just brought back the day we had. I loved the waves I made using my gypsy to weld them together and then I bought some glitter paper from Michaels . Some of the shells are from the beach and some are from the CT stash.. Most of my shells were TOO big to use on a layout.





So what do you think? I love this one, as I love all of mine but this one just brings me back to St Lucia all over again!

Since this is a 5 day hop I'll be annoucing my blog candy on the last day. In order to be entered, you need to become a follower of my blog and comment on each day of the hop. Ok, now on to the next blog April http://www.curlsngrins.blogspot.com/. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you tomorrow . Have fun!

  15. Wonderful layout, Dana! As I commented on someone else's blog, I really enjoy seeing the completed layout with photos in place. They look totally different than they do without photos. Great job on this. I'm a new follower and will be back after the hop is over to have a better look around. TFS!
