SOS June Sketch Challenge #15

When I saw the sketch for the June Sketch Challenge (#15) at Scrap Our Stash, I was instantly ready to get started.  I love this sketch!  

I already knew exactly which pictures and story I wanted to tell and here it is:
The journaling says, "Chacala, Mex  -  Where 2 spirited minds joined forces".  There is a couple of great stories about our time(s) in Chacala where the girl in the picture (only 10 years old at the time) and I pulled a couple of pranks.  Our favorite is when we filled the boat head (bathroom) with balloons in honor of her Mom and Dad's anniversary.  After all, that's what they found in their apartment when they returned from their honeymoon over 20 years before.  The best part of the story is that her parents were watching us from shore the entire time and never asked why we were laying down on the side of the boat (so we could hide while we blew up the balloons and shoved them through the porthole to the head.  I have a second page planned to tell the stories with one more picture.

The requirements for this challenge includes using the sketch and also using enamel dots or sequins.  I don't have the dots or sequins so I used my Ranger liquid enamel to make my own dots.  Be sure to stop by Scap Our Stash and look at all the layouts for this sketch challenge and the monthly stash challenge.
