Catch the Wave

Happy Saturday!!  It's only 102 degrees outside!  Not bad..considering the heat index yesterday was 115!
Needless to say, I have been at my desk scrapping allll day.  It's way too hot to venture outside.

The July challenge from More Than Words was to be inspired by the word "beach" and "seashells".  We also were challenged to add seashells on our project somewhere.

Here is the challenge board:

I had lots of pictures from our trip to Typhoon Lagoon in Disney, so I worked on this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:

And came up with this page:

I reversed the center of beach text paper.
I hand cut a circle and used inks on it, but didn't like the coloring so I went over it with markers.  Still not happy with it...
The chipboard circles are from Creative Embellishments.
I used 2 different ink on them to get a color close to what I was looking for.
I then added some fun wave and seashells stickers from Jolee's.
The font on the letter stickers is one of my favorites!
I wish I could find more like that!

I'm happy with the results - but it also reminded me that i need to shop for more colors in inks and markers.  

Thanks for stopping by!!
