Saltwater Fish Tank..

 My husband started doing saltwater fish tanks about 5 1/2 years ago.  When we got married he had a 90 gallon tank.  He loved the tank and really enjoyed taking care of the fish and coral.  He started to teach me all the different things about the fish, feeding, cleaning, and over all care of the tank.  I have to admit I wasn't nearly as excited about it as he was.  After awhile I realized how neat it was to see all the different things growing in the tank, and I really began to love having it in our home.  We upgraded soon after we were married to our 215 gallon tank.  This is one of our favorite hobbies to do together, and I found out during his recent deployment that it just isn't the same doing it without him.
Here I have done a double layout of just a few pictures of our tank.  I used Glitter Pink Coral for the base.  Then my mom-in-law cut out the starfish from the Glitter Starfish paper and I glued them onto the corners of my paper.  I also used a few of the little green starfish on each page.  I framed the picture on the right with a thin Glitter Purple Crackle border and a thick Glitter Pink Crackle border.
Above is a picture showing the great glitter paper. I used my Criut with the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge to create my teal coral here in the bottom corner.
This is the right page really showing off the beauty of the fish tank and all the cute page details.
Here is a close up of the adorable seahorses I made, again with my Cricut and the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge.  I thought these were so cute when I added them to the page, there are also a few more of the teal coral I made.  This was such a fun layout to do, and I loved working with all the bright colors!!

Happy Crafting,

Such a great combination of the water papers, and It feels like the page is part of the tank too! Great job.
