We are a total beach family, we love going, aquariums, anything beach related and we are totally there. These photos were taken a year ago, on our Cali trip, and we went to the Cabrillo Aquarium, a fave of my husband's. I played along with the 10/10 sketch from the My Scraps & More Sketch a Thon and added in the twist of negative space. I also used it towards The Paper Variety's seascapes challenge- Ocean, Sea or Nautical themed... easy enough for us. I used Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air line, which was perfect!!!!

Here is where I played with the negative space. I punched circles down the farthest right side of the patterned paper and then added some chipboard embellies in the center:
adding some bling on the waves:
Yup, that's my crazy family.. my hubby with the shark and the kids as lil grunions.... ( I think they make really cute fish.. wink wink)
