Anchors Aweigh

I thought I had lost the pictures from this trip and found them yesterday.   This was a trip we took in 2007.   Arthur loves boats and had one when he lived in Florida and had talked about taking one out again on a vacation.   So he and I and Dad and Bruce drove to Florida and leased this awesome Grand Banks boat for 5 nights.  
I had made about five layouts from the trip but no more and then I couldn't find the pictures again.
So now that I know where they are I get to finish all the layouts I want from this trip.

For this layout I used the Make It Monday Sketch #60 at  "THE MEMORY NEST"    I kept it really clean and simple.    The cross line of color strips is actually the on this wood wash background paper, so one complete piece of paper.   I cut another strip of stripes from another piece from this collection.
Carta Bella - Beach Day and used an exacto knife to cut two lines on the background paper and then wove the cut piece under it.    If that makes sense at all.   :)

Check out all the details for this sketch and the others this month at   "THE MEMORY NEST"
