Wild dolphins

This summer we have had visitors no one can remember have seeing here earlier: wild dolphins



Patterned paper: American Craft (Project life). Vellum shapes: Studio calico. Alphas: Jillibean Soup (red), Basic Grey (blue). Buttons and ric rac: unknown. Flair: The Paper Bakery


Journaling says; "On irregular times wild dolphins have visited Aarefjorden this summer, not the regular harbour porpoises, but the real common dolphins. J & H were lucky and got to swim with them, and lots of us could watch them from either land or boat."

Details:


I don't do Project Life, but the AC Nautical PL collection is perfect for any layout featuring our life by the sea

 Instead of inking up the edges of the cards (to make them pop more), I have oulined them with a black pen. Not perfect lines, but it softenes up the straight design.




I haven't scrapped much this summer. We have had the most lovely, warm summer ever,  it has been too nice to scrap, and we have been busy just enjoing the time off. This means I have tons of photos to scrap, and I needed some fresh ideas to get me started again.

I was browsing for inspiration when I stumbled upon the sketch blog Sketch-N-Scrap and their skethches made it so easy get going. The layout above is made with the August 1th sketch by Lisa Hidy:





If you are in need for a sketch for inspiration, I strongly suggest a visit to the Sketch-N-Scrap blog - they have lots of great sketches for both layouts and cards!
