I used a photo of the kids playing in the river taken during the last summer vacation in France. The weather was so hot, it was only nice when you were in the water so the die-cut “Sunny” had to be used!!
I decided to use the Treasure Island collection which is just perfect for almost all of our vacation photos! My favorite papers in this collection are the metallic ones so for my background paper I chose the sheet “Pirates Paper Metallic Copper”. How I love the result. The photo was layered on even more beautiful specialty “papers”: first a piece of lime colored vellum, next on a piece of clear sheet with a map and last a “normal” piece of paper featuring multi colored sailing boats.
I also added a couple of cards (two journaling cards and a bingo card) and after adding a few die-cuts (clouds and arrows) and a flair my page was as good as complete! To finish it all off I used my sewing machine and added a few drops of ink.
