Waiting for the ferry

I'm starting of with a couple of pages for the guys using my Counterfeit Kit called "Back In Time" Project Life Album.  The notes from Mom and Dad's album were sometime in 1991.

 
I used the Cricut to cut the "Ferry" out of the Going Places cartridge.  I know it's not a real ferry but it was the closest, I added a couple of heart rhinestones to the windows as both Dale and I used to ride them to work. I didn't have enough of the capital R's so I used two small ones instead.



 I used the D'Vine Swirl embossing folder on all of the red cardstock. I added the stamped birdies as they reminded me of the sea gulls.



The above picture shows the layout in the sheet protectors. The journaling reads: It was always an adventure waiting for the ferry. Running on the beach, chasing sea gulls, picking up sea glass, rocks and sea shells.

Thanks for stopping by.
