Florida Scrapbook

Whew...feel like its been so busy as of late...but I am almost done my Florida Scrapbook, about 5 more layouts to go, but I was anxious to share some of the completed layouts with you. Above is the first page...I know its hard to see, but the small strips are major cities along the way, with the time and temperature...the paper is a Florida map that I bought while down south.

This is the place we stayed...loved it, right on the beach

We went to St Petersburg to the Morean Gallery to see the Chihuly Collection...loved that...most of the photos are from a brochure as pictures were not allowed in the gallery

I think we hit this flea market 5 times in the 14 days we were there...huge, we've got nothing like this in Canada

The Pier in St Pete's...

The Long Pier, walking distance from our hotel...all kinds of wildlife and juts quite far out into the Gulf

Went to see Manatee....toooooo exciting... these gentle giants...soooooo cool to see so many of them in the wild

Beach shots

Here we rented scooters for a morning...what a blast that was...we drove from North Redington Beach to Clearwater, and back to Treasure Island...
When Rebecca and Max arrived, Dave and the kids took out the kayaks on a rather windy, wavy day...they all tipped them, but they had fun

Took some very old chip letters that were pink and black with designs on them, and painted them with Tim Holtz crackle paint...I think I need this paint in every this product

Some embossing and sanding...

Starfish bought at a local shell store..

The "A" sandcastle was glued and covered in actual sand I brought home from the beach...and inked halfway up my title

Thanks for looking...most of the pages were inspired by the Page Maps books I have, love them for inspiration...the last few will be posted when I get them all done.
