First layout

Hi all!!

Hope all of you are doing great. Indian friends must be battling heat that too if you are in metros. Hope some rains come to cool the heat.
Okay now onto my layout. The first travel layout I've ever made.I did make baby scrap book layout some time ago but this is the first time I'm making a travel layout.

Although the DT's at Lulupu have given fabulous instructions on "how to make a layout" , I was not able to make one like one of them :(. I did use some gesso but was not very confident (u can see that on the camera picture). I will surely give a try in the future.

 But have made this layout using some basic instructions given by the Lulupu design team.
So this layout is a simple one. Hope you like it.

I've used "Yes please" paper pad and bird washi tape. (both were BGC'S prize for my win there)
Since the picture has a boat and the papers are not so feminine, I've tried not to use flowers. Have used buttons instead for embellishing. I've left space on the tags to write about the trip. Hope I've done at least some justification :)
