Catch a Wave

Whew, I think I'm squeaking in on time for two challenges (fingers crossed!)  The first, and this one totally inspired the photo I chose, is one from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge:  scrap something from your bucket list.  Since my first surfing attempt was an "epic fail" (quoting the youngsters here - do your kids say that?), I've always wanted to try again.  One day, I'll take lessons and stand up on that board, or die trying - and that is a definite possibility, as the cute Aussie lifeguard tried to tell me back in 1995!

Here's a close up of the title:

I used a bunch of cut files from Silhouette, including the title, to complete this page, and I had a lot of fun messing around with sizes and scraps!

The other challenge I had in mind when creating this layout was a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy

Love the angles and layers on this sketch!  

Well, that's it for now.  Oh wait, I wanted to show you some more wildlife pics I took from our deck the other night:

I had no idea that Vanderhoof is some sort of mecca for these birds!  They fly over the house probably a hundred times a day, from the field across the road down to the river, and I think they're so beautiful!  Loud, too, honking from dawn to dusk!  Jason says they're snow geese, other people say they're swans - if you know offhand, please enlighten me.

Happy Easter to all!  



  1. Great take on our challenge Roxy - love your design!!! So good to have you here again with us at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - hope to see you here again soon!!

  2. Love this Roxy! You are rockin' the Cameo my friend!! Thanks for playing with us at LGS! It's nice to see you here again!
    Oh, and Jason's right, they're snow geese. They look a LOT like swans and I tend to mix them up but they are in fact snow geese. We'll get flocks in the hundreds in the fields around our place - they are beautiful for sure!

  3. Love it a well done page with a great store to tell.. love the snow geese pictures as well.. take care

  4. Fab layout Roxy, love how it feels really "beachy" :)
