Summer Love

As you can see in this photo of my son and his fiance that they have water behind them. Although this is not the ocean, it's a lake on the mainland called Harrison Lake I still decided to use the Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" collection. I just kept out any ocean type things on the paper not on the layout. 

For the background paper I used one of the pieces that  looked like wood strips. I distressed and inked the paper. I then took one of the pieces that was a light blue color and tore a large corner piece and added that to the background paper after I distressed and inked it. I then used 4 of the bottom strips off of the papers, distressed and inked them and laid them from top to bottom of the background paper. I then cut two pieces of the paper from the collection, one approximately 2" x 9" and one 1¾" x 9" and cut them both like a banner at either end. I distressed and inked both pieces and laid them from left to right on the layout. 

I matted the photo with one of the dark blue papers from the collection and then added a piece of cardboard to the back of the photo to pop it up on the layout. I added some Prima flowers from my stash along with a small metal bird in a bird cage and then added the sparkly chipboard title "Love" to the layout. Here's the finished layout.
