Lasting memories sweating with the oldies

This week at Lasting Memories we are sweatin' to the oldies
using a "summer" song lyric from the 50's to 70's.
 For my song I choose  Sitting on the dock of the Bay by Otis Redding 

I thought it fit my photo of Sunset at Nye Beach really well

"Sitting on the dock of the Bay
watching the tide roll away"
For the Layout itself I'm using a slightly modified Skecthes in Thyme #80

I spaced the photos out so they don't over lap and my accent elements actually touch the edge of the photos

Also for this challenge I'm incorporating Scrap fit step class #5 
Ombre- defined as having colors or tones that shade into each other.
I used four different colors of close to my heart ink pads ( yellow, sunflower yellow, orange and watermelon) and just ran them across a golden rod piece of card stock

 Creative memories frame chain border punch with centers punched with standard hole punch
 on a scrap of the ombre

Hope you're inspired to join us at lasting memories for this weeks challenge.

Make sure to stop by and welcome Stacia back to the team. 
After a well deserved break she's up and running and supplying this weeks prize
