Citrus Twist

We just recently got back from a great trip to Atlantis. It was a wonderful time for bonding and just enjoying some much needed relaxation time. Atlantis was a lot of fun. They have an amazing water park that we took full advantage of. It did rain several days, but we still found activities that kept us busy. One of the coolest things we did was swim with the Dolphins. Ryan and I donned wet suits and got up close and personal with a dolphin named Meg. It was absolutely amazing. Well worth the arm and leg they charged us, LOL. But, seriously, it was an experience of a lifetime.

Here I am kissing her nose. She proceeded to give me a huge splash of water in my face right after the picture was taken!

 And here is Ryan dancing with her. The told us to put our arms out straight. Then she came out of the water and lifted up her fins. We grabbed the fins and then shook our booties to dance with her. It was so fun!
I'm sure you'll be seeing a layout using these two pics sometime soon!

So, onto scrappy stuff. I have a couple of layouts to share today. They are my last two Citrus Twist pages. I really enjoyed working with CT for May!

This page documents my newest scraproom purchase - a Rasko cart. I just love it. It holds all of my mixed media supplies.

I created the swath of water color by first painting on a transparency. I used plenty of water and then laid the paper on top of it. The title was cut with my silhouette using the font Stencilia. 

This page documents things about Ryan as he turned ten. I wrote about all of his favorites right now - Minecraft, being with friends, reading Big Nate books, etc.

 Well , that's about all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope to see you again soon!

Great photos and layouts, Anabelle!
I love that stencil font you used for your title-- and that cart! I've been trying to figure out how to make it work in my scrap space because it's just so lovely!
I also love your layout about your son. He sounds a lot like my son: Minecraft, Big Nate, etc. He's ten, too. I should get him to do a favourites list that I can scrap...
