Another layout from my February vacation. This is Orange Beach, Alabama. We've been there before, and I have dozens of pictures of it in another scrapbook, so I just wanted to highlight my favorite photos from this trip. I used paper from CTMH's Fanfare paper pack for the background with white cs for matting the pics and a stripe of outdoor denim cs for the stripe on the right page.
I love this picture, and it's obviously the highlight of the layout. The worn look of the Fanfare B&T paper looks beachy to me. I sewed (by hand) around the pic and added various buttons in blues and whites. It's all very simple, except the sewing is tedious. I got the layout idea from the book Playing with Paper by Angelia Wigginton.
I drug out the CTMH white daisy ink for the title. It's pigment based, so it's a little messy to use, but it always looks great. I think it adds to the weathered, beachy look of the layout. I used CTMH's Delightful Alphabet stamp set. The outdoor denim cs strip is water distressed on its vertical edges.
