I can't believe it is September and I've done my first layout of our travels in 2011 - Talk about way, way behind!!! 

When I saw this file created by LisaJane, I knew I had to skip ahead and scrap this photo of the Bodie Lighthouse.

BODIE LIGHT - May 26, 2011 - Outer Banks, North Carolina

JOURNALING:  General Information - Bodie Lighthouse observation trail

PHOTOS:  Images by Shetzers Photography

SUPPLIES USED:  Lighthouse cut file by LisaJane at FileKutz, BasicGrey Granola and Basics White patterned paper, Stickles Waterfall glitter, Stampabilities Black ink, Tim Holtz Distress ink in Faded Jeans, Doodlebug Design paper frills in Lily White, Diamond Glaze, Sand paper, mini pop dots, Recollections mini round gems, Recollections faux pearls, Autumn Leaves For the Record journaling stamp, Tsukineko Goose Bumps, Cricut Expression, Sure Cuts a Lot software, Bernard MT Condense font

TECHNIQUE TIP:  This wonderful file from LisaJane at Filekutz matched the photo of me in front of the Bodie lighthouse so well, that I knew that I just had to use it.  I wanted a fairly simple layout in terms of patterned paper but wanted to recreate the comotion that is always found near the seashore with breaking waves and lots of birds.  I decided to cut out several extra birds and waves from the cut file and re-create a seashore on this page.  A little glitter and diamond glaze to mimic the water and a little round gem to mimic the light in the lighthouse and I was all set.
