Calypso Summer


It's a Flamingo Party and what better paper to use to save my granddaughters photos than Close to My Heart's Calypso Workshop my Way paper packet. All those flamingos were perfect for this project. After all, if you are going to have a huge flamingo float you have to use a few flamingos to record the moments. I think this vibrant paper shouts out Summer Fun!

I cut out the mermaid using the Cricut cartridge, Life's a Beach and instead of using the mermaid cut, I decided to use the relief instead and then backed it with pink.

I'm entering this layout in:
@ Cut It Up 100th challenge- Congratulations ladies in reaching the 100 mark!

I just love the diamond shapes they used for a background on the scrapbook page.

on both sides. You can use the other

It's covered in luscious pineapples,
the sign of hospitality and warmth.
