Under The Boardwalk, Down By The Sea...

Hey y'all! I hope you are having a fabulous day! I have a new post going up over at the "She's A Sassy Lady" blog today that features some Momenta goodies and I wanted to share it with you here as well.

 I don't know about you, but have you ever had one of those days when you sit and stare at blank paper in your scrapbooking room? This happened to me a few weeks ago when I created this project. I had been on a big sewing kick, working every single day, scrapbooking from dawn until dusk and all creative mojo was at rock bottom. So I started to dig through my Momenta supplies and kept going back to their flourish stickers. I just love their flourish stickers and all of a sudden an idea that I had seen a while back hit me...to use the flourish stickers as 'sea weed.' I had seen this idea from the talented Erin Morehouse. I have had the privilege to design with Erin on a couple of DT's and she is amazing! Her work always speaks to me. Check out her fish project HERE. I wanted to make sure I gave her proper credit for scraplifting her sea weed idea. Thanks Erin for the inspiration! You rock girlfriend!

Here is the card that I created...

This is a card in the shape of a fish bowl. The fish bowl is from the Create A Critter cartridge.
 Aren't these stickers as cute as can be? The puffy stickers from Momenta are wonderful from dimension.
 For the 'sand' in the bowl, I used some crinkle ribbon bunched up.
 My sentiment stickers are also from Momenta and I added a bit of bling around the edge of the bowl.
For the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment and added the word 'Friends' from the Life Is A Beach cartridge.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you have enjoyed this project! Have a fabulous day!
Happy Scrappin'!!!

Wonderful fish bowl. Especially like the gem bling, ruffled ribbon & the flourishes that are the plants.
