Sailing on Salem Sound-Summer Fun challenge for Bitten By the Bug 2

Welcome to the Bitten By the Bug 2's Summer Fun challenge.  I scrapped a pic from a summer trip to Massachusetts a couple of years ago.  We took a ride on a frigate and learned about the maritime history of the region.

I played around with several anchors and settled on these two. One from Close to My Heart Flower Market and the skinny one is from Stand and Salute.

The waves were super fun to play around with and easy to create a 12" border without pulling out the 24" mat.
