5 fun facts:
1. Most of our vacations involve the beach/ocean so we can scuba dive.
Our most exciting adventures have been in Belize where we've encountered
hammerhead sharks at The Elbow and nurse sharks at the Blue Hole!
2. Although I dated my hubby for 2+ years, we got married 3 days after
he proposed... we had a "weddingmoon" on a beach in St. Lucia! And yes,
we went scuba diving in the morning and got married that afternoon.
3. I recently got locked out of the back of the hotel I was staying at,
not just my room, and it was quite amusing walking around to the front
of the hotel, going into the lobby with freshly showered wet hair in my
pj's to get new keys! I find new ways to laugh at myself on a daily
4. I'm no stalker by any means but I have been known to go to extremes
(don't ask, don't tell) to meet my fave singer, who happens to be Rob
5. I have met the most amazing people, some who have become my closest friends, because of this hobby!
SHE SELLS SEASHELLS by Heather Leopard
Heather tells, "I wanted the main focus of this page to reflect how
much fun my daughter had picking seashells so I layered distressed
papers and embellishments and topped it with this photo of her showing
me one of her handfuls of shells. I completed my designer’s triangle by
enhancing the pre-printed design at the bottom and adding another set of
embellishments at the top. I wanted to create a fun title for my page

HAPPY DAY BY THE SEA SHORE by Heather Leopard
"I originally scoped these two pages out as a one pager but decided to break them out into two separate pages that could stand alone or go together. The title flows together very well from the previous page but by adding the Happy Day sticker from the Remarks Book, this page can be read as a fluid title if it is viewed as on its own page. To draw the eye around the page I created mini scenes. I wanted these scenes to show the magnitude of my daughter’s quest to find as many shells as she could."
