Scrap Around the World- January Challenge

Hello! Today I will share you the January challenge at Scrap Around The World, hosted by Kim Ewins from Australia.
Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like,
 using one image, several of them, all of them or even just
 one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!  

Here's my inspiration...
I was inspired in the sky blue and ivory colors of the moodboard and worked with Maja Design papers for this page.  This is a memory of a family/friends trip to Aruba, years ago.  I love the beach photo so I tried to make a wave draping the blue paper and I always love to incorporate jute in my pages to give this rustic look and one of the mood photos has balls with perfect!

A different angle of the flower cluster and the draped.

Flowers and trinket by Prima.  The burlap butterfly by Pink Paislee

I masked the background with a Prima stencil and molding paste.  My tittle is a Spanish stamp by Latina Crafter and means..."Unforgettable Moments"
