A Nautical Page

Hi, guys!  Today I have a layout called "Tall Ships" to show you.
Supplies: background paper from McRice; woodgrain paper from KaiserCraft; all other paper from Bazzill; alphabet stickers from Bella Blvd; label stickers & button from October Afternoon; Candi dots from Craftwork; gifted baker's twine & anchor charm; red twine from Canvas Corp.; ribbon from ReStyle; enamel gear from C-Koop Beads of Duluth; rhinestone cabochons from Olla Podrida; black pen from Foray; red & blue pens from Zig; household mini stapler; upcycled tag.

I'm playing along with the City Crafter challenge blog, where the current theme is "nautical."  Although my home state, Minnesota, does not have any ocean shoreline, we do still get visits from oceangoing ships.  Duluth Harbor, on the tip of Lake Superior, is the endpoint of the Saint Lawrence Seaway.  The layout that I'm sharing today has photos of historical oceangoing sailing ships, which were visiting Duluth Harbor last summer.

 Here are a few detail shots...

The two navy blue half circles with little stars are actually two halves of the tag from an umbrella that I recently bought.  Since sailors use stars to steer, I upcycled the tag for this page.  There is usually some little upcycled element on my pages--it's like my trademark.  :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope that you have enjoyed this visit to the historical ship exhibit in Duluth Harbor!

I love the colorful flag photo. It looks like it's your background paper though. Did you have it printed large? Anyway, great layout! The anchor is just to perfect for words.

^Ann, the background paper (with the large scale mast & flags) is that photorealistic paper by McRice that Scrapbooks Too used to carry. I purchased it at Pine City Scrapbook Co. Located on 35, on the way to Hinkley, Duluth, etc., Pine City Scrapbook stocks lots of paper with local appeal.
