The Sights & Sounds of Santa Cruz

Hi everyone,

Popping in today to share a layout that I made with Scrapbook Circle's August Kit Island Paradise. One of my favorite things about this kit is the awesome alphas included in the kit.  I decided to showcase the alphas on my layout.

Santa Cruz Beach Layout

I recently went with my family on a day trip to Santa Cruz beach.  We spent a lot of time on the boardwalk where the kids got wristbands and rode the rides.  This ferris wheel along the boardwalk caught my eye and I couldn't resist snapping a few pics.  I loved how this close up shot turned out so much that I decided to enlarge it and use it on my page.  

I love mixed matched titles, and I think they add so much fun and interest to a page.  To create my mixed matched title, I layered some Elle's Studio tags along the top right hand side and then added in Scrapbook Circles exclusive cork die cut, and Basic Grey Grand Bazaar chipboard alpha's.

I also used the Bungalow and Tiki Torch add ons on my page (flair, HS card, chipboard pieces, stickers).  Overall, I had so much fun with this kit and I think you will too.  Stop by Scrapbook Circle today to pick one up.
