We're having another rainy, dreary day here in Colorado and while I should probably be working on the family Ark, I've been flipping through my pile of recent layouts and reminiscing. It's definitely got me dreaming of sunshine and beaches, so maybe after I finish this post I should go work on that boat. A few more days of rain and we just might be able to float right on down to the Caribbean!

This page features the new South Pacific collection from BasicGrey and it's definitely my new go-to line for scrapping our Mexico pictures. I used several of the journal cards as photo mattes, lining them up horizontally on a piece of beige cardstock and positioned it across the map paper. The scallop-punched border helps define that area, along with a bit of machine stitching.
I fussy-cut three of the travel tags from the Bora Bora paper and used them (layered with stickers & buttons on top!) to form a visual triangle around my center band. The white borders on these accents, as well as foam adhesive, help to pop them off the busy background.
I'm always mixing up type and fonts for titles, and this one is no exception! It's a combo of die cuts (white and soft aqua cardstock layered together) and the South Pacific alphabet stickers. I've popped up the word "paradise" for a bit of dimension - gotten love the depth those shadows provide!
So that's my mini vacation for today. Time to wade out and run some errands! Happy Tuesday!
