Beaches And Pastels

I love summer. I love the heat and the sunscreen and ice cream. Most of all, I love the beaches! These images were taken by my husband at Laguna Beach. I really like them because they are not the typical beach photos with swimsuits and sand. It was late in the day and I was wearing some weird leggings. The light was just right and my husband took some long exposures, resulting in some unique Summer photos.

I started with perfect paper from Craft Smith's Summer Dream pad. Not only is this paperthe perfect color and matches the theme, it even has an appropriate title built right in!  I then matted it on solid pink paper and added embellishments like lace, mini tags, star brads and paper scraps.

The layout for this page comes from Stuck?! Sketches' July challenge. It really was the perfect sketch for the photos that I have and finding paper with a title corresponding to the size and placement in thee sketch was too perfect!

Lastly, I participated in Scrap Our Stash's July tic-tac-toe challenge and chose the squares "red white and blue," "stars" and "tags." It was fun taking the 4th of July themed challenge and putting a spin on it. It's still Summery, but not at all a portrayal of a patritic holiday.

That's all for now scrappers. Thanks for stopping by my page!
