Surf and Sun and Iguanas Oh My!

I'm not sure why, but I don't usually take too many scenery pictures and very rarely make layouts with them even though I print them out.  I only scrapbooked this set from Puerto Rico because they would work perfectly with a weekly sketch posted in the Victoria Maria Scrapbook Group on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.  They are basically pictures from our spot by the pool (clockwise starting from top left): our hotel, the Caribe Hilton, one of the few iguanas we saw walking around the pool deck, my husband coming back from a beer run, the ocean and an old closed hotel on the next property.  It used to be the Radisson Normandy - I went there with some friends way back when.  It was very unimpressive and it was kind of torture staying there and seeing this beautiful resort right next door.

For this layout, I used up some October Afternoon Summer Time collection.  The background paper had a sun but I cut out another one from a cut-apart sheet and popped it up for some dimension.  I usually ink the edges for some definition but I like to outline brighter patterned papers.  With a lot of pictures and a lot of patterns, I kept the embellishing simple.  The title is American Craft Thickers (of course) then I pulled out some K & Company word strips and added some enamel dots to call it done.
