First Beary Box Submission

So recently I have been watching a new scrap site, Love the people who run it, the ideas that are being posted, the products they carry, prices and most of all AMAZING customer service. I want to help grow this site and since they have started layout competitions I figured I would stretch my scrapbooker muscles and participate. I mean how can there be anything wrong with the potential for gift certificates while getting things done. So they give us a sketch, and we then interpret it. This is the sketch we were given.

This is my interpretation. I used pictures from the summer and really loved the way that the blue of the water and the sky worked with the red in everyone's clothes so I ran with that and added some glitter (because seriously, a layout isn't done without glitter!). It didn't photograph as well as I would have liked, but there is not such great natural light happenning in my house right now...ok there is none cause its the middle of the night.

Hope that everyone likes it, I love feedback.

Those sail boats are precious-- did you make those? Once again, great submission. Hope to see you at Beary Box again this week!

I did indeed make the little sailboats, and I pieced together the big one from a sizzix die.

Thanks so much, I enjoyed the challenge so I hope I have time again this week.
