Back to the beach

I decided today I was not going to work on anything.   I have tons of laundry to do.  I dropped the kids off at home and took a drive all by myself to Archiver's and Joann's.  I was hoping that A's would have the new Splash Dance line from Imaginisce....but nooooo...why would they do that??  I only have a really nice gift card burning a hole in my pocket specifically for that line!  So I settled on green Glimmer Mist, adhesive and some other stuff I didn't need.
As soon as I got home, I jumped online to Generations Crafting and ordered Splash Dance!  So there!  I feel great knowing it will be here soon!
And...I was so energized after online shopping, I dove into a beach page.  The sketch is #110 for Creative Scrappers.  I think it's the last one for the month so I wanted to get a jump on it and ended up finishing it.
Solid cardstock for the background and the centerpiece.  I used Tombow markers to draw the dark brown outline on the centerpiece.  Then I sprayed the heck out of it with Aqua Glimmer Mist.
The wavy piece was cut from a sheet from the We R Memory Keepers White Out line.
The title stickers are from the winter set from Bo Bunny...lol
The chipboard swirls and flowers are from K& Company.
The photo mat was a piece that my co-worker and I had made while we were goofing off at work one day.  I had it laying around and it worked perfectly with this page.  
AND...it also qualifies for the challenge at Practical Scrappers!  
Not bad for someone who wrote off scrapping for the night....


  1. Wendy....don't you just hate it when you know exactly what you want and can't find it when you get to the store?!! so frustrating!!
