What a Wonderful World

Hey there, readers! This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is What a Wonderful World. I decide to represent the theme with a two page layout of my family exploring the Clearwater Aquarium. Clearwater Aquarium is best known for the world famous dolphin Winter. Winter lost her tail in the wild, and was rescued by the Aquarium. There are two movies about her story. The Aquarium, to me defines what makes our world wonderful: people helping creatures in need.


I used the Seaside paper pack for this layout, because it has the perfect beachfront aquarium feel. For the left page, I layered the papers to feature a single 5x7 photo.


To embellish the left page, I used a Seaside Picture My Life card with this beautiful coral design. I also added a dolphin from the Life's a Beach Cricut Cartridge. I actually cut the tail off of the dolphin, and put it on the other side of the photo. I thought that was a clever way to represent Winter.


I also created my own B&T using a stamp that came from the Seaside Workshop on the Go. I stamped an entire piece of 12x12 sweet leaf cardstock with sweet leaf ink. The coral and the letters are also cut from Life's a Beach.


For the right page, I layered paper to feature four pictures.


I used flip flaps to hide eight more photos.




I again embellished using a PML card, plus some of the Seaside Compliments and Assortments. The journaling spot is actually from the My Crush Wildwood Assortment. I love how these cards match the Seaside pack perfectly!
