I was fascinated by the Belugas at the Vancouver Aquarium. They are gentle giants.  Most of the time they look like they are smiling at some joke they'll never share with you. Aurora and her daughter Qila would glide effortlessly through the massive aquarium as if performing a ballet. I watched them in fascination for an hour. A memorable experience. 

The sketch for this layout is from Scrapmuch? designed by Laura Whitaker.

The colours used were perfect for the marine theme of the layout. For this page I used the papers, plus two additional printed ones, from a Scrapmuch? Project Kit called "WOW". You might wonder why I didn't just make the kit as suggested. Actually I did. Confused yet?

What happened was that I ended up with two of the kit. I liked it so much I guess I bought another one not remembering I already had the first. There's something to be said for making up your kits on a timely basis.

So having made this page from the sketch and one kit, I made the second one as suggested, adding one of additional papers from the first page for continuity, ending up with a two page layout. I think it all worked out well in the end.


  1. Fantastic job with the sketch and I think it was meant to be buying two of the same kit and this double pager is fabulous! Thanks for linking up with ScrapMuch?!

  2. I love this layout and you have such awesome pictures. We are talking about going to Vancouver later this summer. I'll have to put the aquarium on our to do list now.
