Surf's Up

Yes, I took a patriotic theme and used it for a coast photo. Was the perfect use of these colors, in my opinion! We recently went over and spent the day with some friends. One of our friends is a surfer and was in seventh heaven when I said he should just go surfing whilst the rest of us explored the beach. I, of course took some photos of him as well.

I've been waiting to use this giant lifeguard perch from The Cut Shoppe and finally got to do it! I love how the red first aid embellishment just pops too, as well as the camera flair from A Flair For Buttons

Evidence used: stars, something woven, fabric, wood, circles

Testimony is done on strips.

I struggled to think of what to do with these colors before I realized that they'd be perfect for these hummingbird photos from Costa Rica. Shooting hummingbirds is HARD! I have many, many more reject photos than good ones, but the joy of getting these guys in focus, in the frame is amazing!

Evidence used: damask, polka dots, wings/feathers, birds, metal, doilies

Testimony is about something I love, photography.

I used this week's CSI case to scrap some macro shots we took on a walk along a pretty little lane in the mountains of Costa Rica. It was fun to keep an eye out for interesting things that others might not notice.

Evidence used: chevrons, clouds, stripes

Testimony is on spending time outdoors.

Tropical Treats

Such a fun, fresh case, just perfect for my photos of a tropical treat we were served after an afternoon's kayaking trip in Costa Rica. It was a HOT day and we paddled for some time. How lovely was it to return to shore and find this buffet of goodness? Our guides whipped all this up, right there by the canal; we were very impressed and it was super yummy.

Evidence used: dots, clouds, fruit/veggies, mesh, leaves

Testimony is a 6 word memoir, "Kayaked mangroves, enjoyed tasty tropical treats"
