Do you ever get an idea for something and then just have to try it as soon as possible? That was what happened for me with this layout. I wanted to created the bottom of the layout with the different patterns on the diagonal and kept adding little things until this layout was born.
I did a lot of hand stitching for this layout.
The picture is of my friends on a trip to Hawaii we took a few years ago. I found the picture after putting together most of the layout. The colors went together beautifully! I used the March Studio Calico kit for this and a few pieces from my stash. It makes me want to go back to Hawaii right away!
