the Coast is Sunny
Apparently getting a sunny day on the northern California coast is a matter of luck. We were certainly lucky last September.
I've been watching Nichol Magourik's videos each week on Two Peas in a Bucket's YouTube channel. She is doing a scrapbook page from "Start to Finish." My two page layout is based on one of her layouts. I just love the half circles for anchoring the title. They really made this one. I also took the vertical border from another of her videos. A band of photos really keeps the focus on these shots of our bright and sunny day at the beach with our friend, Susan (shown on the left). I just loved the expression on Lenny's face when he tried wading in the Pacific. I knew that water would be cold so I just walked through the course sand and explored a little.
As I mentioned yesterday, I seemed to be hooked on spritzing. After cutting the 'sunny' title on the Cricut in cardstock, it looked a bit dull compared to those glitzy Thickers, so I spritzed the letters with iridescent gold Angel's glimmer mist.
Thanks for visiting with me today. Be sure to leave a comment on Monday's post - linked here - for a chance to win my blog birthday candy. Comments must be posted by tonight at 9 Eastern time.
