Toes in the Water

 I'm trying to finish up a couple of layouts for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  I really should not have waited until the month was half over before starting, but I am really happy with my progress.  I kept this layout pretty simple as the guys normally spend a couple of days a year at the beach with friends so I thought this background paper was perfect.  I added a sheet of vellum to help highlight the title, photo and journaling spots.

I again dug into my stash of pre-made elements and pulled out some birdies and the decorative label in light blues and the stamped one.  Since I had made the layout with the overlays I cut one apart and added it to this page. 

Thanks for stopping by.

28 layouts and you started mid month? Wowzers. Look at you go! I am sure that level of productivity deserves an award.
