Today I am sharing a layout I have been working on for a while now. A couple weeks ago the kids and I went to “The Tall Ships of Duluth” and yes we did see the worlds largest rubber ducky. I will share a picture below. But I got some really awesome pictures of the ships.

So it was a matter of picking the pictures. I had a ton to choose from, it was putting it all together that I fumbled with. I put it aside multiple times and finally said I just need to get it done.

I used my all time favorite collection, Seashore. This is one of the best collections Prima has made.

I started by painting the wood anchor with crackle paste and then applied a layer antiquing cream, drying and then wiping it off with a damp cloth.

I wrote a message in my bottle, and added the rest of the flowers, art stones and spray.

It was a fabulous day with family and the kids. The weather was gorgeous and the memories where made.

Thank you for stopping by today.
