Epic Discoveries Await

So here's a little fun fact you may or may not know about me...I absolutely LOVE to scuba dive! Hubby and I are pretty adventurous people and have been on some pretty amazing dives.  Of course, we wouldn't intentionally do anything to risk our lives cause we have little munchkins and well, we hope to live full lives with them. But we do have our advanced certifications and have been luck enough to dive in exotic places like Belize.

When I got the Gossamer Blue August Main kit and saw all of the travel and adventure goodies, I knew that I had to start documenting more of our travels.  This one just happens to be all about me diving the Blue Hole with my hubby, Bryan, for a 2nd time.

How amazing is this ombre chevron paper??? It reminded me of the differing colors of the ocean and it was a perfect match for this photo of me jumping off the boat into the Blue Hole. I gotta tell ya, it starts out nice and clear at the surface and gets super dark when you're 130 ft. below.

Yep, that's me up there doing what I love.  It's so peaceful underwater when all you have are you, your thoughts and whatever sea life is around you. And speaking of sea life, you don't actually see much of it in the Blue Hole. We were lucky to be the first boat out that morning so not much was stirred up and you could see pretty far and that also meant that the sharks were still resting below. You see, the nurse sharks like to swim up from deep below to about halfway up our dive so many times, they are coming up with you. Yikes. I'm told they are the more docile sharks and are also used to the divers there.  Hmmmm. In case you're wondering, yes, we did see run across a couple.


I saw the little tickets above and I knew I had to find a way to squeeze the little alphas included in the kit onto them. I really like how it turned out.

Alright now, make sure to check out the August kits shown below and visit the site. Lori has some amazing things planned for Gossamer Blue.

 
Thanks for stopping by today. Now go on and get crafty.
