Lily Bee | Makapuu Lighthouse

Last week was “Fun In The Sun” week on the Lily Bee blog.  For this theme, Becky Williams and I decided to scrap some vacation photos.  You can see the entire post and both of our layouts on the Lily Bee blog here

For my layout, I used a photo from our December 2011 vacation to Oahu.  We went on a hike to the Makapuu Lighthouse and enjoyed some gorgeous views along the way.

Supplies:  Destination Collection (Atlas paper, Luggage paper, Tickets paper, Boarding Pass paper, Souvenier paper, Postcard paper, Letter Stickers, Label Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers), Sweet Shoppe Collection (6x6 Tiny Tablet)

I made the large sun on top by cutting out a half circle and mounting it on foam adhesive.  Then I pierced some holes in the shape of lines radiating from the sun, and used the twin in the Destination Embellishment Bundle to create the sun rays.

I mixed some banners that I cut out from paper, along with a chipboard banner to create different textures and depths.

I used this Fun In The Sun cut file from the Silhouette online store and cut it out using the yellow airplane paper from Destination.

I used mostly blue and yellow colors on the layout, with brown and red thrown in.  I really like how it turned out!  :)


  1. Beautiful layout, Christine. I like the Makapuu title on the sun and how you have the twine rays cover the top of the page.
