Behind the Scenes - SOUS Sketch Challenge

Even though I'm layout-impaired, I keep trying! Eventually, I'll manage to have a layout come together and just look fantastic! I love the double-page sketch by Becky Fleck at StuckOnUSketches this week and decided to give it a try! Take a look:

Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

Behind the Scenes (at Seaworld)

I thought the Basic Grey Basics would be perfect for the background! It did look like it needed a pop of color so I added some Bo Bunny Double Dot paper in Brilliant Blue. It matches so nicely with the blue in the pool!

Page 1 - We were lucky enough to get a "Behind the Scenes" tour at Seaworld in San Diego! We met this majestic Beluga Whale in the Wild Arctic exhibit.

Page 2 - The girls got to "pet" the whale, feed it and we all got whale kisses! It was absolutely amazing at how smart these beautiful creatures are!

Here is a close-up of the Basic Grey - Basics Writer's Block. They were perfect for adding my sub-title and look great as decorative accents!

Here is a close-up of the Basic Grey - Basics Ribbon Doilies! They were perfect to finish off that edge!

Well, that's it. Again, not exactly how I saw it in my head, but I'm still happy with it! Thanks for looking!

Happy Crafting!
