Beach Babes.........and Kimmie's Kandy Winners!!!


Aren't we just a couple of the cutest 'Beach Babes' you've ever seen?? *giggle* Nothin' like tootin' yer own horn, huh?? Heehee! I would never say that if I wasn't sittin' beside my gorgeous daughter.........or if I was actually wearing a bathing suit!!! Baahahahahaaaa!

This is probably my favourite layout from National Scrapbooking Weekend. Like I mentioned before, I went to a wonderful all day crop at my local scrapbooking store and had a great day of fun and scrappin'!! Sometimes I have a hard time at those things just because I'm not in my own little craft room and I'm so used to knowing where everything is and being able to reach right out and grab it, rather than diggin' to the bottom of one of my mammoth totes and saying 'I know I brought it...it's in here somewhere!!!' That's totally frustrating and funny at the same time!!

Anyhoo, this page just really fell together just right and I was super pleased with it. I used these six pictures, which, believe it or not, Emileigh took all but one of them, including the ones she is in!! The colours in them are so yummy and matched the Blush Basic Grey papers so well, I just ran with it!! I used the solid blue/green sheets as the background pages and then took the coordinating floral page and used pieces all over the layout as embellishments. First I cut a quarter circle out of it and used that as a title background piece on the upper left hand side. Then I cut out some of the large flowers, small flowers and leafy designed pieces, dtp'd the edges of them and used them all over the layout. I also used a wide strip down the right hand side of the right page.

I did the title using a chipboard letter 'b' which I painted with brown paint and then roughed it up with sandpaper after it dried. I tied on some pink grosgrain ribbons and the rest of the title is done using my Cuttlebug Hippie Chick alphabet. Then I had some of this great white ric rac and some delicious Prima Flowers that just happend to match perfectly!! It is a very 'beachy' layout for a very 'beachy' day in Florida!!

AND, the randomly drawn winners for the sketch challenge are: Michelle, Paula and Donna!! Please email me your snail mail address and I will get your prizes out to ya!! That was a lot of fun and maybe we can do it again soon.....are ya game???
