Everyone has a happy place right?  Mine has always been Islamorada in the Florida Keys.  I've been going here since I was a little kid and my dad and his family went all while growing up too so it's pretty much a family place in our eyes.  This layout is a simple reflection on the beauty of the ocean...I love the ocean oh so much and my heart is always longing to be there, maybe someday...

Lots of layers including the amazing American Crafts POW Glitter Paper in silver I can never have too many sheets of this in my stash and think I'll die if they ever stop making it.  I just realized how much I love that aqua/mint mixed with red, talk about a "pop!"  I have so much washi in my stash and figured I should start learning new ways or at least make an effort to add it to my pages so I lined the bottom with a nice gray stripe, love the boldness.  A lot of the layers were from my Studio Calico kit this month too, always fun.  A few splatters here and there of Mister Huey in Inky Black and a little sticker from Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and a Captured Die Cut from Chic Tags, you can't go wrong.

I've also come to the conclusion I have a love for these nice thick wood veneer arrows, love love love.  I made my title nice and simple and stuck with the gray color so it didn't draw attention away from the photo and all those layers of goodness.

A little tag placed on top of the right corner of my photo tied with twine, a star (who doesn't love stars, I think I have an addiction...) and a little Studio Calico paper clip flag.

Thanks so much for stopping by <3
