Stingray City


Really trying to work on those cruise photos.....and these pictures fit into the Sketches in Thyme challenge for this week. We went to Stingray City on the Caymen Islands, and honestly, it was one of the best experiences of my life. (Not my daughters....check out her face!) We only have 2 pictures though...because of the water. I used Imaginisce paper, Thickers, painted chipboard, Martha Stewart border punches, and Making Memories Ribbon on this along with a little blingy arrow I had laying around. The stingrays were hard....no Cricut stingrays.....what to do???? Well, I found a sewing pattern.....trimmed it out on double cardstock (one side glittery white/one grey), and added details with my Sharpie. Lots of Versa Ink here there and everywhere and that's it!
Woo Hoo - this made the Sketches in Thyme Top 3 this week!
