April Showers

Even though it's raining here at the moment I am posting a bright sunny beach layout! A little bit of sunshine to brighten your day.....

I made the frame by cutting out the middle of the Kaisercraft paper and roughened the edges. Then it was adhered to the background sheet with mounting tape to raise it up slightly. This makes it easy to slip embellishments under the edge. The "Beach baby" & "wonder" are from Memory Maze Designs. Wonder was inked and then heat embossed using coloured utee and beach was inked and then topped with mica flakes. Assorted shells and beads were used to embellish the center of the layout. The thin strips of paper were cut off the the manufacturers strip at the bottom of the Kaiser papers. These are good to use as border strips or embellishment pieces and it makes the most of your papers.

We spent a bit of time at the beach over Easter since the weather was perfect so I am keen to make some more beachy layouts. Here are some catchy beach phrases for you......
Fun in the Sun, Beach baby, beach bum, splash, sandcastles, beach babe, catch a wave, paradise, surfin' safari, sand angels...
Embellishments for your beach layouts can include....
shells (fake & real), gems, pearls, beads, buttons, mesh, muslin, diecuts, chipboard, texture paste, sand mediums, driftwood.......
Have fun creating your own Easter memories.
