Been a couple of crazy weeks, but I finally finished this layout.  It is of my husband in our boat on Kentucky Lake - he is checking the screen - looking to see where the fish are.  At the bottom of my layout, I "borrowed" a couple of his little fishing lures from one of his tackle boxes - he has so many tackle boxes and lures - he'll never know these little ones are missing.

I am going to enter this layout in the 7 Dots Studio challenge for August-September 2015 - and the theme is vacation.  Below is the graphic for the challenge and a link under the graphic will take you to the challenge page.
