Challenge #45: Sailboat

Good morning, crafty friends!

In honor of Columbus setting sail on this date in 1492, the Design Team was challenged to incorporate a sailboat or sailboat inspired theme into their projects. 

On the evening of August 3, 1492, Christopher Columbus departed from Palos de la Frontera, Spain, with three ships; one larger carrack, the Santa María, nicknamed Gallega (the Galician); and two smaller caravels, the Pinta (the Painted) and the Santa Clara, nicknamed Niña after her owner Juan Niño of Moguer.   During this first voyage, instead of reaching Japan as he had intended, Columbus landed in the Bahamas archipelago, at a locale he named San Salvador.

OK!  History lesson over . . . take it away, ladies!
