Tuesday Adventure

Happy Tuesday,

Oh I know for many of you summer is still under way.  Being a teacher I need to start getting back into school mode.  Last week I found out that I am going to be moving rooms (which is a good thing) so I went back into school to start boxing up my stuff and clearing out the new room.  I can't believe I only have a couple of weeks left of summer vacation.  Where has the time gone????

Cord Scrapbook Studio gave me the Aboard kit to work with from Studio Calico.  I must say I had so much fun working with this collection.  I wanted to try making a 12x12 background using my silhouette and then using some of the negative space with the pattern paper.  As soon as I saw the hexagon background I bought it.  I am a little late to the game with the hexagons.  It usually takes me awhile to try something new but I really love the shape!

This layout is of our Florida vacation from 2011.  We always do one new thing and last year we took a boat ride to the famous Cap's Restaurant.  This restaurant has been around since the 1920's.  Al Capone used to run his bootleg licour here.  My parents went to this restaurant on their honeymoon.  It was really fun and the boys really loved the boat ride.  It was a true adventure!

EVERYTHING is Studio Calico except the black cardstock

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new card sketch.  Hope you stop by!  See you then.
Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Well that turned out great! I'm like you when it comes to new trends, wasn't sure I liked the whole hexagon madness but it's growing on me and I like the way you did it in neutral.
