I didn't have any water themed pictures or boat or pirate type scrappy goods, so I googled the word nautical and studied images. I decided to use a nautical colour theme of red, white, blue and a touch of yellow. I used clean lines, so no fancy border punches for this one! ;) The stars helped with the theme as well as the banner. I used the jute as it reminded me of rope. I wanted to use a sketch that had a circular element to represent a life saver. Here is my sketch that I created to use.
It was a really fun challenge! Play along for the monthly prize if you have some extra time during this busy time of year. I have not been scrapping much these days. I am enjoying the company of my sister Susan and her family. They have arrived from Quebec and are just waiting for the moving van to make it's way across this vast land of ours. Maybe tomorrow???? It all depends on how many snow storms there were along the way.
I'll leave you with this seasonal vintage image! :) Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
