…And Away We Go Layout

Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying your day.  Today I wanted to share a layout that I created with some inspiration from Paige Evans.  Paige is a very talented scrapbooker and I love the way she can come up with amazing designs and how she always thinks outside the box.

For my layout,  I used the Fancy Pants Nautical Collection and decided to go with an anchor shape that was applicable to the nautical theme. This photo was taking on a Hawaii Cruise I took and the ship was sailing beside the Napoli Coast.  This is a great way to use scraps of paper.

I machine stitched around the design and embellished with some Fancy Pants buttons, stickers, die cuts, chipboard, and a  mini bag that are also from the Fancy Pants Nautical Collection. To complete the layout I added some twine, and a flair button from A Flair For Buttons.  Below are a few photos of closeups:

This was so fun to do and although it was time consuming, I think the end result made it worth it.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an amazing day!
