Fishy Tails

Today I am guest designing for Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons!!
I used the cute set "Fishy Friends" for my projects. I knew right away that was the set for me since we just recently spent a month for vacation in Florida and my hubs took up fishing. He actually caught a bonnethead shark (its in the hammerhead family) and then he caught the weirdest looking fish that I found out was a Cow Fish (which is in the blow fish family) so this set was perfect!! I love the way the shark and fishes turned out! 

My first project I used the print and cut with my cameo and filled the base of the card and the layer of the card with "Summer Brights" Circles & Dots that is in the store. I used the offset to create a cutout in my accent layer so that you could see the paper from underneath and accent my shark! The twine is from Timeless Twine.

My second project is a quick little birthday tag. I used a shape I had in my library. I created an inset and then changed my line style to look like stitching. The sentiment I think is cute the font is one of my favorites called "turkey sandwich"!

Third project is my layout. I used the print and cut again for the backgrounds for my pictures. All from the Summer Brights. Now I am not a layout gal I don't seem to be able to pull them off but I still wanted to make one for my hubs pictures. He is so cute he was so happy to have caught these fishes! I touched the shark it was like velvet not slimy like I had envisioned. I did not touch that ugly fish though!
 See I really don't know how to layout a layout ha ha! 
Whatever though it looks good to my husband so that is all that matters.

Thank  you Lisa for letting me Guest Design!!!
