This layout brings back some good memories of the lobster pound in Maine which is located just before crossing the bridge to Bar Harbor. My husband's father used to take him to eat at this pound when he was a child. I think he enjoyed it even more as an adult.
To assemble this layout, mount a square of red card stock on an 8x8" black page. Stamp the corners of the red with black Marvy Matchables ink using the leaf stamp from the Elemental Doodles' Create a Basket stamp set. Mount the pictures on light gray, medium gray and black card stock; place on page. Cute a black card stock rectangle, punch the corners with a ticket punch from Stampin' Up!, and run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. Mount on a larger rectangle of medium gray card stock; punch the corners and glue to the layout page. Mount a lobster embellishment from Jolee's with foam tape on the black rectangle. Use rub-ons from One Heart ... One Mind to embellish the page; stamp flourish under the word "entree" using a stamp from the Elemental Doodles' Create a basket stamp set.
Today was a fun day. We went to visit friends who own a ranch in East Texas. Part of our visit included lunch at a wonderful Italian restaurant and ... my fave ... a visit to the scrapbook store. Tomorrow promises to be good also since my Coast Guard son called today to let us know he is here from Alaska for a visit and will be over tomorrow to see us. This calls for a celebration ... a fireworks display is in order.
