For the SBB August :Fun in the Sun" Challenge... we were to capture the essence of summer, with bling of course! Twist was to incorporate shells, sand or the sea in to the layout.
You may not realize it but I used sand on the lower right corner and a bit spread on the lower left corner. I'm not thrilled with how it turned out. The sand is really pale.
I blinged up the one area of sand to make it look like the ocean. I used shells that we have found on some of our vacations. The bright colored shells and star fish are actually from the bridal shower that friends threw for me.... I saved them and finally had something to use them on!!
The surf board is cut from a pp.
I fell in love with the funky paper clips while on a school supply gathering trip at Staples. Thought they fit the 'tude of this page (think "cool dude" and "Hang ten").
This photo is one that I love. Just took it last month and it is actually good of all 3 of my boys!
