A day at the Beach!

Hi all!
I want to show you a scrapbook layout that was submitted for a contest...didn't win...but I thought you'd enjoy the eye candy!

Speaking of candy.....I am going to offer my first ever blog candy really soon...so keep your eye open for it. I surpassed 20, 000 hits on this blog...so I'm gonna celebrate by giving you the chance to win some goodies!

Anyway...back to the task at hand...this page. I took this picture last year when we decided to go to Erie for a few days for a mini get away. I have always loved this particular picture...as a matter of fact....I am tearing up now thinking about it. It is sentimental crap so I won't bore you with that....my little girl is growing up so fast!
The base is close to cocoa. I stamped the sea shells from Seaside with versamark and embossed with detail clear embossing powder. My journaling was done with the Write me a Memory Journaling Font CD around the picture on the bordering blue mat. The picture was matted with a thin layer of chocolate chip. The accent shells were stamped onto watercolor paper with basic brown and then watercolored with an aquapainter and watercolor crayons. I cut each of them out and adhered them around the page.

Here is the entire layout:



The title "good times" was a rub on from the Urban West collection. I put it right on the picture.

Here are some closeups of the shells....the conch shell and the long shell (name???) has crystal effects on the "inside" of the shell...hard to see in pictures. I also showed a closeup of the dimension of the shells....had to get my stampin' dimensionals in there, huh?

Sorry if I bored you with too many pictures.....I couldn't stop myself! LOL!!!!
