2021: Spring Break 2021 – Pompano Beach – Lucky Fish and Pelicans

After spending a few days with my son, I travelled further south in Florida down to Pompano Beach to visit my aunt. As soon as I got down there, she wanted to go to her favorite restaurant – Lucky Fish – which is right on the beach, and I had an amazing Poke bowl. Afterwards we walked down the Pompano Beach Fisher Family Pier and took some pictures with the pelicans without getting attacked.

For the left-hand page, which features the Luck Fish restaurant, I chose a Hawaiian flower background paper as it matched the color of my Poke Bowl in the bottom left picture. I matted the three pictures of my food and the restaurant in another Hawaiin flower paper that had more browns in it, to help tie it to the right-hand page. Since we were still in Covid cautionary times they handed us a plastic card with an online menu to use. When I was taking a picture of this spread, the QR code tried to take me to the menu! I used Cricut Design Space to recreate the Lucky Fish logo and added it to the top of the page.

For the right-hand page I chose a brown wood patterned background paper to match the color of the sides of the pier and bordered the four photos in a seahorse themed background paper to pull some of the blue greens out of the water in the pictures. The flower in the middle of the spread came from the brown flower border on the left-hand page, and I used some sharp pointed scissors to carefully cut it out. I used my Cricut machine to cut out the pelican graphic to add to the page. I purposefully made it quite large for the page to help emphasize the large size of these amazing birds.

Moving forward, for most of my scrapbook creations I have also created videos that show me putting them together and talking about the experiences as well as the techniques that I am using. So please enjoy watching this spread being created and assembled:
