Scrapbook Challenge

Hello Ocean

Blue And Coral And Glimmering Gold

Sometimes I wish I had more diverse photos besides cats, selfies and tropical vacation photos. But since I don't, here's another page full of photos taken in Oahu , Hawaii.

This was another page where I kind of winged it on the color palette. I just picked up the Authentique Utopia Collection paper pad which is perfect for all those tropical photos I have. All the papers have a fun vintage Hawaii vibe which is really unique. I used a few of these prints a well as other left over paper scraps to make multiple photo mats. I edged one side of each mat with Fiskars Paper Edger Scissors for some added interest. 

I mounted the photos on paper from Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Vellum paper pad and embellished with items from My Mind's Eye My Story Mixed Bag, Flea Market Fancy Gold Camera Paperclips, Kimono Washi Tape (love the flamingos!) and Jolee's Boutique flip flops. I threw in some coral colored doilies too.

This page was done for the March Scrap Our Stash tic tac toe challenge. While the challenge was St. Patrick's inspired and my final page was definitely not, I was still able to use it as a source of inspiration. I chose "mini alphas," "gold" and "washi tape." The gray and pink alpha stickers are Hazel & Ruby's Gone Typo Bitter Banner Alpha stickers.

This page's sketch came from Stuck?! Sketches March challenge. I downplayed the circular element and focused on the square shapes. I really liked what Kelly did with the sketch and was inspired to do something similar.
