Traveler's Inspiration Challenge {5}

Hey everyone! Well I survived school clothes shopping! :) We just have a few more things to pick up before school starts. I can't believe Summer is almost over, it went by so fast! I have been wanting to do Tina's Traveler's Inspiration Challenge this week, but I have been so busy, that I just did it today! The inspiration picture is from the talented Claudia (aka-Clouds), she actually saw this everyday growing up! How amazing is that? I lived at the beach when I was a small child, but the beach was nothing like this!! The picture reminded me of the trip to Destin, FL. last year. I have made another layout from this trip for the Traveler's Challenge {3}. I am making a whole album of this trip, so I thought I would add another page to it! The picture in my layout is my view, while I was laying down on the beach! I loved the sand and the water so much there! The sand was like powdered sugar and the water was the prettiest blue and green! I could have sat there all day long!! We plan on going back for my 30th birthday in October, I can't wait! The inspiration for the colors, was from my swim suit and I just had to use some of my new punches that I finally found at Michael's! The scallops reminded me of the circles on my swim suit too! :) It's a really simple layout, but I wanted to focus more on the picture of the view! I am still working on taking pictures of layouts, I needed a darker color behind the layout, so guess what I used? My High School Graduation gown! No lie! It worked, so I guess that's all that matters, right?! OK, so here it is!
Here is just the picture!
Supplies:
Paper- My Mind's Eye,SU!, white & black cs
Stamp- Autumn Leaves-journaling stamps
Ink- Versamark- watermark
Accessories- American Crafts- Thickers, EK Success- large scallop, Fiskars- small scallop

Have a Blessed Day!
