Fantasy Island layout

I just love the colors in this layout!!! I did for my daughters book of one of her many high school dances. I will be applying this layout to several challenges- I used the sketch from SOUS- which I love their sketches and was inspired by the other challenge they have, to use die two challenges are for Stuck on U Sketches and the other one was a recipe challenge over at Memorable Seasons to have the following :                 Scalloped edge- 2 pics- a banner- 3 leaves - and a pinch of stitching.

Materials used:
My Minds eye scalloped die cut paper
Bo Bunny peach dot paper
DCWV yellow paper (cricle chalked)
Basic Grey-teal paper
White cardstock for all cuts
Cricut Cartridges-Lifes a Beach/Straight from the Nest
Chalks, , rhinestones, Stickles,
blue embroidery floss for waves
Jim Holtz distressing inks- several colors
pop dots, yes paste
palm tree brad

I really enjoyed doing this layout-I could vision what I wanted for this layout and it all fell into to place so well- I like to make my own embellies so this was fun for me to do with all the leaves and flowers and stitching, inking and chalking- which took alittle bit of time so worth it.


  1. Debbie, this is awesome! Love how you've used the leaves to make a garland/banner across the page. Don't you love when a page turns out the way you imagined? Thanks for playing along with us at Stuck on U!
