awe: A lAyout for Sketch Inspiration & Scrapping Everyday Miracles

I think this may be the final layout about our vacation to Culebra Island, Puerto Rico!  Whew!  There was so much to see and do that I took a ton of photos!  One of our favorite activities is pictured here:  iguanan watching at Mamacitas Restaurant for lunch!  These iguanas are tree-dwellers, herbovores, diurnal (sleep at night like humans), curious, and yes, they can swim!!! 
I am just in AWE of the miracle of the infinite variety of God's creation, and that is the miracle many of us miss - especially when we are looking at lizards!  Most of us don't think they are beautiful, but I sure do! This layout was inspired by Challenge 21: Fall Miracles at Scrapping Everyday Miracles & a ScrapTwist to use paint!  I used the negative leftovers from a child's game to paint green acrylic polka dots, much like the tiny dots of color on the iguana skin - if you get really close! 
The layout was created around Sketch #344 at Sketch Inspiration!  I love using 2 photographs and all of the geometric elements! 
I used these products to create my layout:
Bazzill cardstock
Apple Barrel acrylic paint
American Crafts brads & photos corner brads
October Afternoon font stickers
American Crafts thickers title font stickers
Jillibean Soup green twine
recycled twill ribbon
