Gone Fishin' - SOUS Diecut Challenge *Crustacean*

Hello there!

This week's Stuck On U Sketches diecut challenge was to use a crustacean. Ummmm, I have to admit that I had to dig deep for this one. :)  But, I figured I could add a cute little crab to a layout about my husband's fishing trip, this past summer.

He had taken quite a few photos, so I knew that it would have to be a two page spread and so I thought I'd make it look like Project Life. I managed to get 12 photos on onelayout! Woohoo!

Papers: Tim Holtz, Glitz Design, Fancy Pants, Graphic 45, Bo Bunny, Pink Paislee, Bazzill Basics; Cartridges & Files: Going Places, Plantin Schoolbook, Stamped, Indie Art, Jennifer Collector of Hobbies SVG; Stamps: American Crafts, Scraptivity, Unknown Alpha, American Crafts roller date stamp; Diecuts & Stickers: Fancy Pants; Buttons & Gems: Glitz Design, Fancy Pants, Misc: Unknown brad, Magic Mesh, Jute, American Crafts Flair, Embossing Powder
I have to admit that I love this litte crab! He fits right in with Brian's lovely orange coveralls. You can find this SVG file and many other ocean creatures at Jennifer Collector of Hobbies. The steering wheel is from the same collection.
The stamp on the tag is one that I created from two different set. The original stamp, said "Eat, Sleep, Camp". Using some sharp scissors, I cut off the top and bottom off the stamp and substituted the word "Camp" for "Fish".  Unfortunately, I purchased the stamp set at a garage sale, and I have no idea who the manufacturer is. But, they are very similar to ones Hero Arts or Studio Calico make.
So now it's your turn to submit your crustacean diecut creation to the SOUS blog. We can't wait to see what you will come up with for this challenge!
Thank you for all your kind words. They mean more to me that you will ever know.
