Swim Up Pool Bar

We have always wanted to try a swim up pool bar. The concept sounded so cool but none of the resorts we had ever stayed at had one until this trip. I was excited. I'm not sure why really but it sounded fun! After now having tried it, I can't understand what I was so excited about. First off it is impossible to sit on a stool in the water. I kept falling off mine and no it was not because I had too many margaritas! When I was a kid I remember spending hours trying to sit on a floatie in the water and always kept falling off no matter how hard I tried. Well this was much the same thing.  It was definitely an experience, one I am sure I won't be so eager to try again ... I will take my margarita sitting in a beach lounger instead!

I decided to break out my circle cutter for this layout.  I haven't used it in years!  I remember when all my layouts had circle and oval photos or even squares cut out with fancy scissors.  It just seemed that it was a phase that I grew out of.  But this layout I had two photos I wanted to use but the one of Steve was mostly pool so by the time I cropped it, it was a weird size and didn't work with my layout.  Then I thought hey why not make it round and I did and it looks great!  And because it was so cropped I had space to use another Status Update post it note ... I love them!

I love the use of brads as a frame from the title to elements!
