Biloxi Lighthouse

According to Wikipedia, the Biloxi lighthouse was erected in 1858 and has the distinction of being tended by female lightkeepers for more years than any other lighthouse in the U. S. One such keeper assumed the role after her husband died, tending the light for 53 years! Having survived scores of hurricanes, this lighthouse today is a Mississippi landmark and tourist attraction. 

I created the layout below  with a photo of the historic lighthouse and an awesome digitally cut lighthouse from The Cut Shoppe. Their Land Ho cut file set also includes an anchor as well as a few jolly good phrases.



Cut from a grey print paper, my lighthouse was inked for dimension: black ink for shadows, white for highlights. A washi tape banner picks up the yellow, red, and navy of my papers:


Layers of patterned paper, an anchor-print string envelope, postcard journal card, anchor pin, and coordinating enamel dots complete the page.


Who can resist anchors? Not me, that's for sure! ;)
