in for a penny, in for a pound: idiom

If something is worth doing then it is a case of in for a penny, in for a pound, which means that when gambling or taking a chance, you might as well go the whole way and take all the risks, not just some
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In for a penny, in for a pound, I decided to do the other side of my picture-less lay out. I have also come to the conclusion that I don't need to leave a lot of room for journaling since my pictures that get taken at the beach usually end up being shells, birds, sunsets and beaches. So I opted out for a saying I saw on Pinterest:

I added some micro beads and Ranger's stickles to the seahorse.

Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge #123, Cool Off

Here are both pages together:
Also, I had a couple people asking me about the "surf / seafoam" on the paper. It's by Paper House.

Now let's hope that I'll find some pictures to fit the spaces I provided!

Aren't you going on vacation? I bet you will have TONS of photos once you get home and edit them.

BTW, I am not sure about that cryptic message you left on my blog, but you have me quite curious, now.
