Catch a Wave~ Vellum Challenge

This week at Pratical Scrappers we were challenged to use vellum. I have a ton of vellum and I knew that I wanted to use this picture of my son Trevor at the beach this summer. (I know it is kind of hard to tell but I posted a close up of his head so you could see him...) My awesome sister Tracie took this picture! She rocks!

I had many ideas of how I wanted this layout to look and I went through a few sheets of vellum before I gave up the crazy idea I had and went simple. I used the George cartridge from the Cricut for the oval journaling. (I made the words in Microsoft word with word art). I also used Lifes A Beach for the waves on the top of the picture cut 3 times and then stickled. I used Graphically Speaking for the "Catch a wave"also cut several times and then layered. Then the big wave was cut in vellum. I LOVE how the Cricut cuts vellum by the way! If you haven't tried it you should!

The paper is from last years Summer Stack. I am sad that summer is over (my kids go back to school in a few hours!) but I am excited for the new school year! Hope your summer was fabulous!
