Deadliest Catch

Most of my photos from this Alaskan cruise were of the scenic variety. Glaciers, bears, wildflowers, eagles, etc. It's nice to have those pretty pictures of the landscape and nature reminding us of the beauty of that region of North America. But it's even nicer to have a few pictures like the ones below...silly photos of Tommy and I having fun on our first shore excursion. Here we are in our bright yellow windbreakers, playing around with the nets and traps near the docks, pretending to work the fishing boats. I titled this page, Deadliest Catch, after the TV show that my boys used to watch.


On the layout I used a mix of older patterned papers from October Afternoon and Basic Grey, inking some of the brighter prints with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper. Even the chipboard title letters were given a grunge look. A light touch with a Staz-On ink pad dirtied them up nicely. The small banner adds a little something to this sparsely embellished page.


These are the things we'll remember best about our trip to Alaska...goofing off, having fun, doing the unexpected. Silly us.
