Paradise Found

Don't know what it is about going somewhere new but I always have several photos of my destination from the plane. Is it just my excitement about the new adventure that awaits or is it that I have an itchy trigger finger that I can't hold back any longer?  I don't normally scrapbook them and if I do they are part of many photos and never the sole focus of a layout.  But when I was going through my photos to print I came across this photo and I really liked it!  The sun is peaking through the clouds spotlighting this beautiful island and I just thought it was beautiful.  So I printed it in 8x10 and did a whole layout about it.

I originally placed the title on the picture itself but found it got lost so I pulled our my trusty drywall tape and ran a piece across the bottom to place my title and embellishments on.  It seems to pull it all together perfectly.  If you don't have drywall tape head to your local hardware store or home depot and get some!  You will not regret it!  I love this stuff!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye - Good Day Sunshine Collection; Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts - Thickers; Embellishments: Basic Grey - Wander Fabric Flowers, Basic Grey - Wander Tabs, Brads, Drywall Tape and Prima Flowers - Flowers Sculpture Reflections Resin.
