Lobster Trap

When I first saw this By the Tide set in the Spring Catalogue I knew I wanted it so I had the lobster for scrapbooking our trips to the Maritimes.  It's taken me this long to get it though.....and I'm loving it.  What a great set for masculine cards and memories.

The colours I've used are Night of Navy, Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler.
I oh-so-carefully used one of the Oval Framelits to cut out part of the lobster so that his antennae stuck out....really, I just didn't want that big an oval on the page. I had seen demonstrators partially cut before - but hadn't tried it myself.  It is a bit nerve racking!

The Soda Pop top has been squished through the Big Shot before I  adhered the anchor image and the anchor image was stamped onto the Natural Cotton Ribbon in both Pool Party and Cherry Cobbler.
The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches this week.

I hope your mid week was great and your raring to get to the weekend. 
Thanks for stopping by to visit.

I love this. It looks like a lobster bib you get when you eat at seafood places.
