Danger: Falling Coconuts!

I decided I would try out the sketch for the June Guest design team challenge on Sketchy Thursdays. I really like their sketches. At first, I wasn't going to submit it because I am just not sure if my SB pages are "there" yet. I am definitely still evolving in this craft. Then I thought about it and figured "why not." It doesn't hurt to submit and in the end, even if I don't get chosen, I have another page completed.

To that end, I had some photos of the damage caused by a coconut falling from the palm tree into our courtyard. I also just happened to get the PP I had ordered from Club Scrap. On a side note, I simply ordered the Castaway PP b/c it so very much fits a lot of the photos I have taken in Florida and the Bahamas. I am still not so sure about becoming a monthly subscriber. So back to the LO, I used some of the castaway PP as the background for this LO. I fussy cut the palm trees so I could slide white CS under the branches. The coconut diagram, "Oh nuts" die cut and the journal spot are also from the Castaway collection.I cut a small danger sign from a piece of creative imagination acetate. The red PP  and (on the 2nd page) the teal PP are Making memories passport collection as is the blue ribbon border. The red ribbon is Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo. I inked the edges of the CS and chipboard arrows with Catseye colorbox ink in moss green.  The arrows are making memories jigsaw arrows.

This is the single page inspired by the Sketchy Thursdays June guest design team sketch( found here: )

and the 2 page LO showing the complete coconut story:
