I am so glad to be part of the DT for Totally Gorjuss, such a lovely team and Net always sets us such lovely challenges and this week is no exception. Our theme is Holiday and I immediately saw that as the excuse I needed to spend time making a scrapbook layout with these two pics from last year's Florida holiday which included a trip to Key West. If you ever get the chance to go there, you really should, it is fabulous. I'm not one to laze on a beach but it was beautiful to walk on and the sunset celebrations are legendary. I have used a strip of some old K&Co paper which has been torn. The banners have been made from a free pad I got recently, Fancy Pants Beach Babe. It was perfect for this layout, even having some little turtles on one piece. The chipboard pieces are K&Co, the stickers were bought in America. We are sponsored this week by Heather's Hobbie Haven.
