{Tropical Boy}

Ethan loves the beach so much that he can talk about our trips with much gusto even after several months! I wish that as he grows up I can show him how beautiful our country is. It is a dream for me and Jeff to visit, if not all (coz that will be quite impossible to do) of the islands of our country - atleast maka-1/4 man lang hahaha!

The photo was taken 2 years ago infront of the beach hotel where we stayed. We were welcomed with shell leis and Ethan wanted all of our leis all to himself!

For this layout, I used Inspired Blueprints' Sketch #23. I've used my stash that I bought 2 Scrapfests ago hehehe (except for the Tinkering Ink that I bought last April).

I used Love Elsie ledger paper as the base, then added the Rhonna Farrer Aqua Twist pp. I matted my photo on Rouge de Garance pp (1st layer) then with Tinkering Ink pp (blue with dots, 2nd layer).

The cluster of flowers is composed of 3 papers from DCWV (light blue Hibiscus), Karen Foster Design (blue Hibiscus), Tinkering Ink (yellow).

matls used: Love Elsie, Rouge de Garance (Urban Art-Urbaine Collection pp), Rhonna Farrer Aqua Twist, Tinkering Ink Beau Jardin - Jardin and Retro Metro - Flossie, DWV, Karen Foster, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, Chatterbox letter stickers, Scenic Route bracket chipboard, Zig and Uniball Signo pen; Photography by Jeff Lopez

I love the bright summery colours that you have used. Contrasting the colours on a neutral colour is brilliant.
