Bahama Blue - MMDT #7

For this project, #7, we were to use the Bahama Blue Grid paper, the page pattern of our choice, and one or more of the following elements:

*FREE download from

*Handwritten Journaling


When I saw the color, I knew I wanted to scrap my recent snorkeling photos from our trip to Jamaica.  The blue color is beautiful!  Then to decide on a page pattern.  I originally thought I'd use pattern number 50 as that is one of my favorites, but then my photos didn't lend themselves well to that pattern.  I took a look through my pattern book and decided on Pattern #32.  This pattern is called "panoramic mosaic", and I thought it worked well with the many photos I had from up near the top of the water!   (NOTE: Page patterns can be found by going to, clicking on Tami's Blog, and then clicking on Page Patterns!  There are a lot of really great ones!)

I filled in the rest of the pattern with photos of fish, coral, and the ruins of a shipwreck. 

For my element, I chose stickers and used the clear bubble-looking alphabet stickers for my title. 

I also mounted a small clear sticker from Cloud 9 Design "Simple Thoughts/Journey" collection.  I mounted the sticker on an Almond Cream tile and then cut it in half to fit the 1-inch squares.  I also used Almond Cream tiles to mount my two 4 x 4 photos in the corners. 

Enjoy! :)

I feel like I am there under water snorkling along with you. I want to reach out and touch the coral. This is just beautiful. The title is genius - looks like it is under water.

I love your underwater photos and how you showed that you were there... enjoying it. It reminds me of our last trip to Hawaii and brings back those tranquil memories. Great job!

Diane, I hope you get to try it! It is truly amazing. This last trip, we had the good fortune of having one of the water sport staff come in on his day off and take us out on a private snorkel at 8 am...before others were out there. It was amazing!

I'm jealous! It's highly unlikely that I'll ever snorkel . . . but it looks so up close and personal. It's like a 3D acquarium. And mosaic is the perfect medium for sharing these take-my-breath-away images. Wow.

I like how your title - underwater shots - has a look like water bubbles. Your photos are great. Looks like you saw a lot of amazing stuff.
