Hi all...Now that summer has officially turned to autumn, (HEAR that -it's AUTUMN so quit with the 30+ degrees days already!!! and a bit of rain would be nice!!!! )and I thought I really should get myself into gear and sort out some of the summer beach photos I have taken of the children. The photo in this layout isn't the most artistic or skillful - I don't think it is even entirely in focus - but I really loved the colours and the feel of it. I snapped the girls on their boogie boards while they were chatting and looking out for the next big wave. It gave me a feeling of vibrant colour and youth, so I reached for the wonderfully colourful My Little Shoebox papers and this was the result...
I really wanted to keep this page feeling clean and fresh so I put down the inks, put away the paper distresser and hid the kindyglitz and sandpaper. I did a little doodling along the edges of the page though, as it looked naked to me LOL. The circular diecut is MLSB from the Imaginary Friends range. The backing page is the reverse side of a piece of Crate paper (peacock). The flowers and butterflies are handcut from a piece of MLSB All in a Flutter - Flutterbys paper. Underneath all that handcuttness (LOL) are some Prima say it in Crystals. The acetate strip is a piece of Screen Prints Vintage Plaid that has been die cut using a sizzix scallop border. The title is Carolee's Creations, and the journal box is a Kaisercraft stamp Journal Boxes.
I'll be back in a couple of days with an Easter OTP that I have done for the M2A DT so stay tuned folks!
Thanks for stopping by... Hugs C xx
