2 Ocean themed layouts

Hey..over at Design Dollies they do THREE challenges every can combine them or do them all seperately.....

So, in this post are 2 layouts that combine all 3 of this weeks challenges:
First challenge is an Elements challenge to use WAVES....  I used an old Sassafras line called Whale of a Tale and fussy cut and popped the waves at the bottom.   

Challenge 2 & 3 ---  This layout is their COLOR challenge & sketch challenge COMBINED.
COLOR:...Royal Blue, Teal & Orange...yep, I cheated a little and dug out Basic Grey Marrakech.  --- 
SKETCH:  When I saw the sketch, my initial reaction was NOT too positive...(making it a good challenge right?)..... I am so glad I stuck with it....becuase I LOVE how simple and nice this layout turned out!!!  Lesson learned!!!!
YOUR NAME IN THE SAND:  If you can't see it well, it's Joseph writing his name in the sand and then the tilted photo is a photo of the "finished" name....
