I used Let's Scrap two page sketch challenge, as well as Quick Quotes' Rosettes challenge to kick start my layout. All the paper, with the exception of the sharks, was cut with Quick Quotes paper and chalked with their Very Berry chalk. The "Looking Good" quote is also from Quick Quotes. Here's a close up of page one.
Here is a close-up of page 2. To create the Rosettes, I used my Boxer board to score my paper strips in 1/4-inch intervals. The sharks, fish, and waves were created with Life's A Beach and Birthday Bash Cricut cartridges. The journaling along this page reads, "Swimming next to the shark tank at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. - Summer 2012."
I am entering my layout in the following challenges:
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything but a card
Totally Gorjuss - Anything Old (Cricut cartridges)
