Starfish

My sister, her SIL & son plus me and my 2 kiddos all went to Sea World.  The kids had a good time touching the starfish and a turtle that was walking around on some open grass.  They got to see the dolphins, sharks, penguins and misl fish.  We are hoping to go back another time later in the year. 


I used a Sketchabilities sketch which also happens to be the sketch for July at The Moments.

I started scrapping this page and couldn't find the right journaling card, tag, etc...So I decided that why not journal right onto my page.  I have seen other scrappers do this but never do it myself.  I'm not sure why I just don't.  Well, to my point, I thought this would be a great challenge for my July Challenge at Sketches 4 All.

I love, love to use color on my layout and this one is no expectation. However, my main color is craft/tan.  Now this is a color that I almost never scrap with.  Which just happens to be the point for the month of July at Scrapbookers Anonymous.

  9. LOL, yes they are called embellishments or embellies. Scrapbooking has its own language.

  11. I've only just started using kraft too (mainly 'cos i couldn't find any anywhere LOL!). I think it's that feeling of being scared to spoil it or make a mistake that puts people off journalling straight on the page. It's overcoming that fear that allows us to create.
