Paradise? Not always

So - I liked living in St. Croix. I "liked" it. Not loved it, liked it. I HATED hearing " oh, you are so lucky to live in paradise" all the time. SO.... I took that into my own hands and took pictures of all the things that drove me crazy down there (except the bugs - I was screaming and jumping on furniture when I saw those - nt grabbing the camera). I always told people that St. Croix was great for vacation, not so much for living all the time - you definitely have to be the right kind of person to really enjoy living there.

I really liked the crate paper pattern paper that came with the April/May scrapbooking kit from Unity. Loved it and had to use it with these photos. Found some thickers that matched almost perfect for the title - they are felt and soft

Stamps: Unity August store kit, Just my type
Ink: Tsukineko
Paper: American Crafts, Crate paper
Accessories: American Crafts thickers, rub ons
