Ocracoke Lighthouse layout

I was so excited about this layout because I absolutely love this lighthouse and I thought the layout turned out great. When we were there this past week, I made sure we got a picture of the lighthouse along with a picture of our friends. It was a great time and this will be a great memory. Of course I did not have time to make the second layout to match, but I will get to it this week, I hope. I used the sketch from Black Magic Sketches and it worked great for these pictures which could not be cropped. So instead of using four pictures, I used two. Also had to incorporate the color black and three colors,green, brown, orange & white, of four which were required. So I did the black with the stampin on the bottom and embossed the stamped letters on top with the black from Stampin' Up! Stampin' glitter, "Fine Galaxy". I also used the Scrap and Stamp Saturday challenge which was to do a layout about anything that involves water, two patterned papers, three embellies, and at least one stamped object in our layout!!! I do believe the lighthouse involves water, I used three patterned papers (which is retired Stampin' Up! designer paper). The embellishments were the 3 shells that I picked up on the beach (another water involvement) and the two flower brads from Stampin' Up! Thanks so much for looking.

Love your LO! I also love lighthouses and you showed this one off perfectly. The layering of the paper behind really makes the lighthouse look tall. Great job. Thanks for joining the SSS challenge.
