Playmates Beach Layout






You will be seeing a ton of beach layouts since i am trying to finish our vacation album from last year. I did not get to do much while i was in school, and i am so happy that i finally get to work on these pages. It is nice to look back now and see how much my son has grown with in the year. I used the K & Company Sea Glass paper, Coordinations paper, I embossed the "water" with a sizzix embossing folder, and of coursed used my Cricut for some die cuts. I used the Life's a Beach cartiridge for the chair, the palm trees (which i welded with my gypsy), the umbrella (i used the new Hide Contour feature for this to make layers. I love it!), and the Beach Ball, I used Everyday Paper Dolls for the post that has the word Beach on it. I also wanted to make a sun at the top, but didn't really like how any of the die cuts looked, so i decided to make a lollipop flower for the sun. I put diamond dust around the Tim Holtz adage ticket as well as the sand castle chip piece. I used Rock Candy stickles on the palm trees and the turtle. I had a lot of fun making this layout. I am going to journal right next to the flower. I did make a title called Playmates, but i did not like how it came out when i cut it on the cricut. I used Life's a Beach for the weld, so i have to redo that.

Thanks for looking! Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think about it.
