Steveston Village

I'm still plugging away at my Vancouver 2012 album. Actually, I stand corrected. That should be albums as it looks like by the time I'm done there will be three. I think I need to really work on narrowing down the pictures I want to scrap.

Steveston Village was such a lovely place. It's Fisherman's Wharf came complete with the requisite fish mongers, traditional and exotic sea foods and seals anxious for the leavings. Something I'd never seen before was a vendor selling sushi right from the ocean.

The Village is also the place from which two major whale watching businesses operate so you can imagine the hustle and bustle. It was really great to sit on the pier on a sunny afternoon with an ice cream cone and people watch.

I had the perfect paper for my Steveston Village layout and was just waiting for the right sketch. That sketch landed in my lap yesterday morning from Scrapmuch? Its first sketch of the month is always a double layout and this one was just what I was looking for. Designed by Laura Whitaker it featured my horizontal pictures perfectly.

I just love the Bo Bunny Boardwalk series of papers. I've never before used so many papers of a collection in one layout. I just couldn't resist any of them.

For embellishments I stayed with the nautical theme using twine to mimic rope and, of course, the traditional anchor and ships wheel.

My favourite paper of the Boardwalk collection is the one you see here used for the corners of the layout. It has so many tones in it and yet one doesn't overpower another.
