“Please Do Not Swim” 12″x12″ Double Page Scrapbook Layout

Today, I’m sharing a two-page tropical-themed layout. My husband and I visited a beach in Mexico last year that was surrounded by several salt water marshes…with several very scary looking crocodiles living in the marshes. There was a small sign out front that read: “Please do not swim with the crocodiles.” Just in case anyone was tempted. We thought it was hilarious so I took a picture of the sign as well as a few pictures of the crocodiles.
 
For this layout I used five different paper piecing files from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs: I used the Alligator file for my crocodile, the Mermaid Paradise file for the palm trees, sun and seagulls, the Duck Pond file for the rocks, the Bring on the Rain file for the clouds and the Wave and Scalloped Border file.
 
This is a standard 12″x12″ double page layout featuring three 4″x6″ photo mats.
 
 

 
The title was created using Arial Bold and Impact fonts. 

 
Products used:
Paper piecing files: Alligator, Mermaid Paradise, Duck Pond, Bring on the Rain and Wave and Scalloped Border
Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch
Paper: The Paper Studio – A Day at the Beach and The Paper Studio cardstock
