Friday 2/8 Scraplift Challenge- "NJ Lighthouses"
Looking through Cheri Thielekes' lovely gallery it was a hard decision picking one layout to scraplift. I finally chose her page,
"SLEEP, SLEEP, EAT & SLEEP" since it inspired me to try out the new Pocket Life Products I've already purchased but been afraid to use. I also liked Cheri's use of the blocks for photos and journaling, since templates and boxes are so outside my comfort zone. I'm not quite up to Cheri's success, but was pleased with my results.
For This Layout I used:
SNU SS Embellishment Templates: 8.5x11 - Pocket Life 6301
CRO Pocket Life: Rustic Charm Cards
CRO Shabby Shores Collection Mini
and my own photos
"Sandy Hook Lighthouse
Sandy Hook Lighthouse, is the oldest working lighthouse in the United States. The light was built to aid mariners entering the southern end of the New York Harbor. Sandy Hook Lighthouse was restored in spring 2000, and is part of the Sandy Hook Unit of Gateway National Recreation Area administered by the National Park Service."
"NJ Shore Lighthouses
I took this photo from a window in the twin lights lighthouse. It looks out over Sandy Hook point and the Atlantic Ocean. Sadly, so much of this area was devastated in Hurricane Sandy and most of this National Park still remains closed with not much hope for summer opening."
The Navesink Twin Lights is a non-operational lighthouse & museum in Highlands, NJ overlooking Sandy Hook Bay, the entrance to the New York Harbor & the Atlantic Ocean. Its unique design & twin lights allowed ready identification by mariners, allowing a rough determination of their location approaching the harbor. "
