Dreamin of a Summer Holiday

For those of you on my side of the world, its winter here in Australia and a little bit freezing. It has in fact been an extra cold winter already here in sunny Queensland, much to my horror. I'm a summer person by far and really struggle with the cooler weather but unfortunately we all have to take the good with the bad...unless you live in Antarctica... because then its pretty much all bad!

So I thought I'd reminicse warmer days through a nice summer inspired layout featuring some pics from our honeymoon in Fiji from October. It was actually Spring but hot enough to be summer. Love that humid, steamy climate!

 And its a double too!
 This collection was perfect for a beachy theme layout. I love the effect of the fussy cut flowers from one of the papers. It looks like a hibiscus bouquet! I also loved the idea of using some cardboard underneath the main photo to give it the look of driftwood.

 Such gorgeous scenary! Definite the most relaxing holiday my husband and I have ever had in all of our 9 years together as we typically do a lot of sight seeing on holiday.
Materials: Kaisercraft seaside collection & tiny alphas; American crafts thickers; WOW chipboard.
