Hi everyone, I’m Helen of Scrapbooking Fun.Biz and I’m so excited to be able to share a 12x12 scrapbooking page I created!
As you all know it's not that easy to get good photo's of older boys, so I’m only using one photo to scrap. Our kids are older now and vacation time is done whenever the opportunity arises, so this mid week mini vacation worked out perfectly for us and our older son. We planned to do some fishing, so we planned a charter boat fishing trip! We really enjoyed the chartered fishing, so we did the boat thing the next day too! We caught so many fish and just incase you're wondering who caught the biggest fish on this trip.....it was me! It was a Walleye!!
For my 12x12 scrapbooking page I didn't want to use to many embellishment, so it didn't look feminine. The photo I used is of my husband and our oldest son as we're waiting for the charter boat to leave the dock. For the base of my page I used the 12x12 School Days Multimedia Pad by Martha Stewart.
I couldn't find a bobber in any of the Cricut images by PC, so I had to create my own. I also wrapped some twine around the two "i" to make it look a little more nautical.
I used one of the Cuttlebug embossing folder from the Asian Bundle on the cloud cuts and I added some Pearl Ex to give them a little sparkle. I also use some Gum Arabic to adhere the Pearl Ex, so it wouldn't all rub off.
I used some twine to wrap around the bout and the hand writing on the boat is the date and I made it to resemble a boat license. The waves are embossed using one of the Cuttlebug Wedding Borders and I also used the Pearl Ex on them.
