UNDER THE SEA BLOG HOP

Welcome to the 'Under The Sea' blog hop. You most likely have just come from my friend Ashley's blog, but in case you missed it...  http://theglamoroussideofscrapping.blogspot.com/
This is my two page scrapbook layout featuring 'the aquarium' pattern set along with the 'photo mat fun' set from Designs on Cloud 9.

Page 2
I believe that my favorite creature in this layout is the clam. I used foam tape under his lips to make them stick out more!
I love how sparklie this rainbow fish is too. It is hard to tell in the pictures but the school of small fish have purple sparkle accents too.
Here is a close up of the stingray and a bit of the octopus with their googly eyes.
This picture shows how sparklie the photo mat paper is, as well as some great sea life creatures.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my 'under the sea' scrapbook layout. Please feel free to leave me a comment, and look around at the rest of my blog as well. Ok, now onto your next stop...

    1. Thank you so much for the compliments TammyS. The pieces are so great and easy to create. The mat paper was a different story. I got that on super cheap clearence because the top coat (whatever they use to seal the paper) was cracking and curling. Luckily I could use the right amount for the four squares:)

    1. Thanks so much for the awesome comment. You are right there is a lot going on. I was wondering if maybe too much, but that seems to be what sells on ebay. I will list it and see. As far as the phot mat files goes... so much fun. This set comes in short ones (what I used) and the longer ones. It includes the 'back ground' as well as different 'waves' that go across. I prefer to sew my mats, so I am not sure I will use these often. But still great. Good luck.

    1. Thanks so much Candace. My dream has always been to be a greeting card designer. I feel like it is a struggle/challenge for me to complete layouts. Each week seems to get better though. Thanks again.
