Hilton Head!

Hi this is Bekah from shalomcrafts.blogspot.com!  This week's challenge was
a 'how i spent my summer vacation' project.  Being that school just started
back up and I'm a busy mom on a budget; I decided that the only whole sheet of
paper I would use would be my background.  The rest of this layout was made
using my scraps.

In my mom needs to get this scrapbook caught up frenzy, I made this entire page
in 20 minutes.  From layout to cut-out to glued down, 20 minutes.  You
moms know how it is.  So now all I need to do is print up my photo, and add
some journaling and done!


We love Hilton Head.  It's a relaxing, quiet vacation spot.  


I made the sand dunes by tearing the light tan colored paper along one edge.
 Super quick!


To save time piecing together the lighthouse.  I cut it twice, once in
maroon on 'blackout' function and then the regular cut in white, layered and
done.

Recipe:

DCWV paper stacks, Brights and Neutrals.  (Green is the only one from the
brights stack)
The photo mat is cut at 4"by 5 1/2" to fit a 3 1/2 x 5" photo.
Grass was cut using the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge;  cut at  2",
cut 2.
The lighthouse was cut from Life's a Beach cartridge, cut at  11 1/2" once
in blackout (maroon) and once main cut (white).
The lettering was cut at 2".  

Thanks for revisiting my all to quick summer vacation.  Shalom!

I really like this layout..The lighthouse is so nice..My mother loves lighthouses and in the old CB radio days her "handle" was lighthouse.. Would you be interested at all in making and selling me one that I could use on a layout for her? Vicki
