Here's a CAS card made with today's set - Get Reel:


As much as I love to color, the only coloring on this card was the little bit of aqua on the water rings.

 My second project is an envelope album, made using the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers' Resources section.   Here is the cover:


And here is the open album:



My late husband Tom loved to fish. That's him in the last photo with what was, I'm sure, his motto! The top photo is my oldest son, Doug. And the middle photo is of my late husband, my former son-in-law, and my two grandsons. It was taken during a vacation in North Carolina. The "Gone Fishing" sign comes from my PrintShop program.

I love your CAS card. That was the look I wanted when I started my "CAS" card, but it didn't quite look right, so mine ended up cut and put on a panel. I love how your fishing album looks. The slanted lines on the dp on the cover made me think of rain, which to a real fisher, doesn't stop them!!I am looking forward to see what you create using the Scenic Selections!
