  Today I am sharing with you a layout using a photo of my niece and her family as they happily vacation at the beaches of Tulum, Baja California.  I loved using the rich browns of Ruby Rock-it's Kinda Krafty paperz and the Scrap FX laser cut chipboard pieces to bring forth the beautiful colors of the picture!
I used a We R Memory Keepers punch on the 2nd paper and stamped some  some reeds in white to partially show around he edges.  It is foam dotted to the striped background paper. The Scrap FX flourish, title and twisted branches add focus to the picture.
My supplies:
Scrap FX chipboard
I hope you are enjoying the blog hop and have found some new ideas and inspiration to spur your own creativity!  Don't forget to leave a comment at each blog along the way to have a chance to win one of the wonderful prizes from Ruby Rock-it and Scrap FX!
Your next stop in the blog hop will be with the awesome Misty Russell.
