Nautical Scrapbook layout

Here's a layout cased from the June 2011 Stampin' Success (a publication for Stampin up! demonstrators).  When I saw the Open Sea stamp set and designer paper, I knew exactly what pictures I wanted to "scrap". 

I took these of Owen in August of 2007. He was just a month shy of turning 3. Our friends Tracey and Aaron invited us to their cottage in Morrisburg, ON. It's on the St-Lawrence where these large cargo boats (for lack of a better name) travel. Owen played on the shore for hours hoping that he would get to see a boat go by. 


He finally did get to see one... Now I have to scrap those pictures too. Stay tuned!

Email me if you have any questions about the products I used.
