By The Seashore

Hey guys! Happy Thursday!!! I hope you all are having a FABULOUS day today! Are we ready for the weekend?! Oh yeah! I know I am! I hope to get some scrappy shopping in, but we will see. Shhh! Don't tell Brandon! He doesn't need to know! ROFL! Anyways, I have a layout I wanted to share with you today. I sat down to scrap last night and decided to dig once again into the fabulous April kit from Scrapbook Circle. I just love this kit. I love all of the American Crafts Dear Lizzy goodies. The colors remind me of warm spring days and fresh, salty sea air. So I decided to pull out a beach picture and scrap that. I started with some Coredinations cardstock...of which I am a huge fan! I sanded the edges a bit. I love roughing up this paper, especially for beach pages. It just reminds me of the rustic, shabby wood you would see on a beach pier or deck. I'm just totally in love with the look it gives! Everything on the page, with the exception of the cardstock, alphas (Pink Paislee), and bling are from my personal scrappy stash. I'm still on the mission of trying to use up some older supplies that I have. Also, of course, what is a page without some Helmar love? You know I used it! I used the Adhesive Runner on the whole page, as well as some Scrap Dots, and some Zap Dots. Here is the page:
"By The Seashore"
Up close of pic...Carter was such a little beach cutie! This is him and my Mom. Isn't my Mom hot?! Tee Hee! She is always dressed up so cute and is such a pretty lady. Now, if I could only have her teeny tiny frame and be a skinny minni, I'd be so happy! LOL! :) Love ya Mom!
(p.s. And ya know? I noticed, after I took and uploaded these pix of course, that my butterfly is covering up my 'y' on the word 'by.' So I think I will move it down a bit so you can see the 'y' better. So visualize it down a bit.)
I spritzed these butterflies, which were cut out with the Cuttlebug, with some Glimmer Mist in 'coffee shop.' I am new to Glimmer Mist as well and I LOVE this stuff! Awesome!
More dimension....Well, that is all from me today. I hope to sit down to scrap some more today and this weekend. I hope I can get a lot done to share with ya. I thank each of you for taking a moment to stop by today! I hope you all have a beautiful day and a wonderful weekend! Take care of yourselves and Happy Scrappin'!!!!!
Pin It!
