I used a photo from a cruise that I went on last year. This picture was taken when my sister and I were on our way to the lounge for some drinks. I decided to use the “Tic Tac Toe” row that had Flowers, Doily and Twine. The papers that I used for this layout are from the DCWV Classy Copper paper pad. I combined a small die cut that says “hello” and a copper foil thicker to create the title “HELLO CRUISE LOUNGE”. I used the Creative Memories Floral Circle punch and one of the copper foil papers and to create a doily. The background of my layout was created using a floral patterned paper with a green polka dot patterned paper as a mat.
The picture was matted with white cardstock, green patterned paper and then a pink polka dot paper to make it stand out from the background.. I also layered several journaling cards from one of the patterned papers under my picture. I cut the doily in half and tucked half under the right side of my layout and the other under the left side. I fussy cut some of the flowers from one of the cut-aparts and popped them up with some foam tape. I used the EK Success Flowers and Leaves punch and the Stampin’ Up Build a Blossom punch to create some flowers and leaves.
I punched a hole in the top of one of the journal cards and added some white twine and topped it with a bow that I created with a white and gold metallic twine. I used the EK Success Confetti Butterfly punch to punch some butterflies from the copper foil paper. Some banners I cut from one of the papers with a pink background and tiny words in copper, the butterflies, a flare button and pink enamel dots finish off this layout.
Here are some closeups of my layout.
And, here’s a full picture of my layout.
