Layout Event - Challenge #2

I squeezed out another layout while having fun with my cropping group on Sunday afternoon.  The Fiskateer challenge was to use the negative space from a punch in some way.  Because I was away from home, I kept it simple and punched the sailboats along the top and bottom.  To keep the sailboats upright at the top of the page, I cut a slit along the top of the picture mat.  Then I tapped it back in place from the back.  If I had it to do again, I would run the slit clear to the edge.  It would be easier to punch and it taped back together so well, you would never notice.
This is Bill on our Sailboat Sirius, in 1993 when we are in the Gulf Islands, British Columbia, Canada.  We spent a year there preparing our boat for blue water sailing.  (That means being out of sight of land for long periods of time)

Sandy, this is a beautiful layout and I want to be there right now! Love your title and your punch outs. Great "work"!

I agree with Lesa. Looks great and what a great sentiment! Bill is the perfect poster child for it!
