Back in 1995 we were living back on the mainland of BC in Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver. In May when the cruise ships are doing a change over from doing cruises in the Caribbean to doing the Alaska cruises they usually do these short 2 or 3 day cruises going from Vancouver to Seattle and back. I took my son and I on one of these cruises along with my sister and another friend. This is a layout of a photo of my son and I taken on this cruise. 

I used the paper line "Broccato Estense" from the Ciao Bella paper company. I distressed all of the papers on this layout and used some vintage photo distress ink on all of the papers. I did fussy cutting of some of the flowers in the papers, along with cutting out some of the tags and envelope from the papers. I layered these and other papers underneath my matted photo. I added some pretty blue and white roses, die cut leaves and some pretty blue berry stems and a Prima bird nest and small metal dove. 

I was quite pleased the way the layout turned out and I would love to hear your comments on the layout.
