For this layout I used the new Cricut CTMH Artbooking Cartridge to create the shapes :) The new shapes are the surf board with the overlay, the paradise title and the wave border.
I used the layout from the new Make it From Your Heart Vol. 2 that is available in the new Idea Book which debuts on August 1st, 2013.
