B is for Borders - Scrapology October Challenge - Here Georgie, Georgie!

Our Scrapology challenge this month is a scraplift of Georgia K Keays, you can find her blog here.

I used Bazzill Olso cardstock as the basis of my page with Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss papers:
Barefoot Cutouts, Bubbles, Beach Bag, Stripe and Surf.
Each panel is cut and mounted onto the blue bazzill before adding to the page to create the borders. 

I added part of a doilly under one panel (mounted on 3d foam pads) with some prima flowers.
The title was cut with the Cricut Life's a Beach and faux stitched with a white gel pen.

Some of the Hibiscus flowers and leaves were added to the side with 3d foam.

The journalling block came from the Cutouts sheet and the remainder of the doilly and flowers were placed under the edge. The other tag was also from the cutouts sheet, only using part of it.

In Barbados we had a boat trip to see the turtles, we expected a few little ones the size of dinner plates.
The guide began tapping the side of the boat and calling "Here Georgie, Georgie" which made us smile, then the turtles arrived which were more than 1 meter across!
The guide affectionately had named them Fred and George.

This is the sketch we worked from...

And Georgia's original page.

Check out the Scrapology site for the other DT entries.
Challenge closes on the 5th November with another fab prize on offer for the winner.

Look at the gorgeous colour of that water! Love the detail in the title, Linda. It is so interesting to see both your and Lynn's layouts using the same papers. Fab detail!
