black sand beaches of Iceland

Six years ago, we vacationed in Iceland with my in-laws.  I still can't believe that I went there - it was so amazing.  We climbed volcanos, rode Icelandic horses, walked black sand beaches, went to the Blue Lagoon, snowmobiled on the tops of glaciers, saw the most amazing waterfalls.  I've been thinking lately that we need to go again!
I have so many pictures from this trip and this is the first one that I have scrapbooked - I'll have to get on that.  When I saw the gray Crate Paper from the Story Teller Collection in the March Studio Calico kit, I knew this was the picture that I wanted to create a layout with.  The photo is my husband on a black sand beach in Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland.
I started researching about the beach a bit online because I couldn't remember that much about it.  The beach was actually named one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world one year.  It is pretty amazing that I got to go there.
I used my Silhouette for the title and for the blue doily behind the photo.  Everything on the page was from the Studio Calico March 2012 kit.  The mist is Mr. Huey in Calico White.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great week!
