I adore dolphins!

I think everyone loves dolphins, but I had the privilege to not only swim with dolphins while we were on a Caribbean cruise many, many years ago, (the day I fell in love with them), but I also lived right on the beachfront along the Dolphin Coast for several years.  We had dolphins swim past every single day and I NEVER got tired of seeing them!  I have THOUSANDS of photographs of dolphins!

My family would probably describe me as a little obsessed, to be honest, because for 9 years living there, every single time I saw dolphins swimming by, I would shout out, ' DOLPHINS!!!' then rush outside with my camera.  I just didn't want to miss them, and didn't want anybody else to miss them either.  What a privilege!

This gorgeous image is one of the brand new releases at Digi Doodle Studios.  It's called Malibu Rain.  

I've doubled up and flipped one of the images so that I could have two of them facing each other.  I've coloured them with markers and added in an ocean behind them.  I've used a Sizzix heart die to cut them out, and to cut the other heart behind the image.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood pack.  I wanted to keep the papers 'softer' than the image, so it would pop.  My flowers are Green Tara and 49 and Market.

I've added several laser cuts: the bubbles and seaweed are Scrapaholics; the little heart shaped reeds on the top left are 2Crafty; the sentiment is KaiserCraft.  I've sprayed them all with white Gesso.    The white swirls are Anna Belle embellishments.  I've also added a strip of white wispy stuff and tiny shells collected on our beachfront.

The day I fell in love:
