Welcome to the Caribbean

This is a layout of The Caribbean Beach Resort in Disney World. The paper is Making Memories, the embellishments are Prima and Making Memories. The letters are from the dollar spot at Target. I cut the pink paper to look like a postage stamp and used alot of white paint. I got the title idea from Susan Stringfellow. Thanks Susan. If you haven't been to her blog, check it out. So much Disney goodness!

I did this layout 2 different ways. Originally I was going to have a very muted look and try to make the pictures really show. I whitewashed the horizontal strip of paper to fit in with my whitewash theme. Then, I decided to use red letters and added the red flowers. Now I am not sure if I should use the whitewash stips or let the color show.
I think the pictures show up better in the layout with the whitewash, but it kind of looks off balance, so I thought I would post both until I decide. ;)

Oh wow! Thanks so much for the link so I could see this! I love both, how are you ever going to choose. I really love the whitewashed look and the way you did it with your title. Your photos are beautiful too! I love that pink building - was it like Aruba? can't remember. Looks like you were there for the wonderful summer weather with the overcast skies and afternoon storms. LOL! We plan to stay in the S.Trinidad Pirate rooms next time we go.
