Title Author Description


Our first assignment for March was to use bamboo grid paper and MM design #52. I used the pattern for page 1 and then for page 2 turned it upside down. I used the large title on page two and a tag for journaling on page 1.  Also, on page 1 used the new circle mats from Snap n Crop in brown.

The photos are from a trip to Mexico in 2011 to a cave. My husband wanted to go cave "cenote" diving.

The turtle was a garage sale stamp embossed in patina color powder. Notice the lizard's tail I left intact. The tag below is a dive saying that is very common. 


 This is page two the pattern is upside down.  This blurry bright photo is what it looks like when the diver is surfacing.  The ribbon is from Joann's cut by the yard. For the large title I used alcohol inks over plastic letters. The pocket is made from suede paper run through cuttle bug folder to hold journaling pages as a book.

 The blue pages that follow are the individual tags that make up the tag book.

These photos have a blue hue that is not on the paper - will have to work on my photo skills. The font used is salsa. Hope you enjoy the pages. Thanks for looking!

Love the lizard - I'll have to try that trick of leaving the tail out... Great layouts!

Very nice layout Julie! I love the ribbon across the middle, that's different and I love how it gives your layout texture! Cenote Diving looks very cool. You were able to take good photos which is always nice to have to document the journey. Nice job!

Nice job! I love how the CircleTiles emulate the bubbles from the deep. The lizard's tail is a riot and your photos are gorgeous. Just beautiful!

I think the circle mats in brown are a great choice against the patterned paper and the grid paper. The lizzard is great.

Letting the lizard tail continue outside the circle was brilliant! love it! Love the quote on your tag too - "take only memories and pictures...leave only bubbles."

Wow Julie! What an adventure! I really like the ribbon for the color and texture it adds, as does the turtle stamp. Doing a whole booklet with tags is a great way to incorporate a lot of details as well as meet the challenge elements. Using the circle frame and leaving the lizard tail intact makes a huge difference to the story the photo is telling,well done.
