Beach Fun

Hello friends!  Welcome to this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 Cricut challenge, Water Fun!  My amazingly talented (and sweet) design team sister, Laurie, selected this week's challenge, and the design team responded with fabulous projects!!

My Water Fun layout is actually based on a card I made last month, Summer Beach Fun.  I liked the colors, the use of the doily background, and the seashells so much that I thought it might make a pretty layout.  

The elements of this layout were cut using two Cricut cartridges and an SVG file. The shells came from the Mermaid Party cartridge while the banner strips came from Bits and Pieces. The background doily cut is from an SVG file I purchased a few years ago at  

The photos on this layout are from my daughter and son-in-law's spring break trip to Atlantic Beach, NC with the grandchildren.  They met two of their friends there and had a wonderful visit.  And I have had a fabulous time scrapping their photos!

I strongly encourage you to visit the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog!  The team has crafted truly inspired (and inspiring!) Water Fun projects.  They are a very talented group.
