At the Beach!

Remember about my getaway the other day?  Oh, we found this paradise at home (Puerto Rico).   You might think that because I live in Puerto Rico, every corner can be a paradise for someone who doesn't have beaches around... but this is a beach resort with lots of beautiful spots and excuses to relax... but most of all, they are pet friendly!!!!  Not many places around admit pets in your stay... 

So this was such a special mini vacation with the whole family!!!  LOL!

I made this layout while I was there... yes, I even had some little time to make some layouts.  I started about four of them with the intention to finish with photos and embellishments later at home... and this is the first one I completed.

I used inspiration from the July Sketch from SEM, which you can see HERE.   I am entering this into that challenge...  The twist was to use a computer generated element, so when I got home I typed the journaling in the computer and printed.  Then I cut the text in strips, inked the edges and placed in the designated spot as shown.

The translation of the journaling goes something like this:  "In the quest of some relaxing days in the middle of so much stress, we found a paradise called Villa Montaña, in Isabela, PR.  The best of all, they admit pets.  Malbec was with us enjoying great moments.  July 21-25, 2012."

This is how the whole page look:

It was such a blessing to be able to enjoy a few days OFF and with the entire family, meaning my husband, my dog and myself!  :)  Thanks God.

I hope you liked my bright color, Summer layout!  I used Basic Grey patterned paper scraps I had from past projects, and combined with solid papers.  Also used some chipboard elements from Scrapbooking Supplies brand, and a sticker from The Girls Paperie.  Also some washi tapes to add some accents.  I even hand wrote lines around the edges of the teared paper just to give a special touch... you know I love imperfection!

I also linked this to the Outlawz' Twisted Thursday's Day at the Beach challenge.

Thanks for your comments....  You know I love them, don't you?
