The finale of the waterfall climb!It was a great accomplishment to conquer the falls! I used decorative edge scissors to cut the 12x12 page. I also used Martha Stewart Punch around the page to create the blue circular embellishments. Instead of creating page titles, I decided to mat a vellum scenic route sentiment with blue allowing it to coordinate with the page. Short and sweet!

I started with a glitter cardstock base made by Craft n Craftin' (GCS008 Ocean Blue 12x12). Using Bazzil white cardstock and Cricut Imagine Cartridge - Nursery Tails, I printed and cut the main image twice (once as a complete image and once as layers). Therefore, this card includes 5 cuts. I inked the edges of the white portion of the card and the butterflies adn dragonfly to make them stand out more.
As you can see in the second picture, I used foam adhesive to create different heights with the butterflies and dragonfly. I heat embossed each butterfly with clear embossing powder to give it some shine. I used my versamark pen to allow the embossing powder to stick and then heated it with a heat gun. Finally, I used smooch top coat to highlight the remaining smaller butterflies and added 2 colors of stickles to accent the message. No card is complete without ribbon so I added some at the bottom and attached it behind the bow with zots small glue dots. While the top 2 pictures are the stickles wet, The last picture shows the glitter glue (stickles) when it is dried.
Wish me luck! I haven't won any challenges yet but the winners are randomly selected so it's anyone's chance!

Doesn't this make you want to go on Vaca right now? We enjoyed the nightlife in Jamaica and the scrapbook wouldn't be complete without highlighting that. I used Die Cuts With a View adhesive mat stack for the journaling and mats and focused on highlighting our outfits, expressions and the feeling of the night. Aren't my hubby and daughter cute?! Notice that I keep the pictures of my family low because this book is for Crystal and her son. Sometimes simple is better when going with a theme. I used papers from the AC Moore clearance rack and a font from Cricut Cartridge Cuttin Up. I like to split up titles to allow the eye to center in the middle of the two page layout. That way someone can take in the whole spread instead of looking at them alone. What do you think of this layout?

I wanted to use a tropical color palate which is much different than my usually color choices. Tools I used are Cricut Cartridge Cuttin Up font, Martha stewart punch around the page stamps, destination stickers all about Jamaica, Creative Memories shape cutting system to make the large circle and circle shadow.

- Cricut Imagine - Lori's Garden (bird)
- Cricut Cartridge - Wild Card (flap from argyle card)
- cardstock, ribbon and letter stickers from my stash
The argyle part of the card was lightly distressed with an emory board. This was a scrap I had left over when I mistakenly grabbed my cutter instead of my scoring tool. I ruined an envelope I made but decided to keep this accent. And voila! It works well with this card months later.
