LOAD 20 & 21 - Splash

Happy Hump day! I was up at 3:30am this morning for an early flight so I didn't get to post this layout last night. I am participating in the LOAD (LayOut A Day) challenge over at Let's Scrap and getting a ton of layouts completed for our Aruba trip. Here is another of DD and DH in the ocean as the surf spashes over them.

I played along with the Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday challenge - WILD. Not only are my pictures about the wild surf in the ocean, but I tried to layer coral cut from my cricut (Life's A Beach) in different wild patterns and mix up the colors I used.  I'm not normally one for a multitude of bight colors, but I thought this layout deserved a bit of "splash".

For the left side of the layout I used a sketch from Grand Diva's Creative Corner - October Challenge.  Here is her fabulous sketch:
Obviously the flower motif didn't work for my beach photos, so I used the cut coral and added pearls.

The right side of my layout is based on this great sketch from Let's Get Sketchy - October week 3.

I had too many photos, so I used the color block in the upper left hand for a 4th photo.

Here are a couple of close up pics:




Materials Used:  paper - Scrap Your Trip; CTMH, Bazzill, unknown scraps; splash title - Scrap Your Trip; journaling transparancy - LYB; arrow - Quickutz; coral - Cricut Life's A Beach; pearls - CTMH; border strip - K&Company; wave - Queen&Co.

Thanks for visiting. Join in the challenges, you won't be sorry!
