Summer Days Beach Babes~

I love these pictures.

And I love them even more after using Shimelle’s Return To The Collection Sketch Four.

Who would have thought one collection would be so flexible?

I’ve used Crate Paper’s On Trend Collection for family pictures, a field trip, a first day of school and now beach pictures.

My layout~

And I especially love the idea of pairing a 12×12 layout with a pocket page.

With a 12×12 Pocket Page~

I was able to include 8 pictures on a two page spread. Yippee!

That meant I didn’t have to leave out a Hartly in a bucket picture.

They’re always a Summer favorite of mine.

Did you notice Shimelle talked me into breaking out the Gesso and Mister Huey’s?

I am proud to say that no walls or window trims were harmed in the process.

I like the texture it gives my layout and mimics the sand a bit.

I was able to dip into my Flea Market Project Life kit again and also put a serious dent in my Crate Paper The Pier embellishments too.

And that makes me as happy as seeing Ashlyn trying her best to squeeze into that purple bucket! He he.

Silly girl!

I used~

Crate Paper On Trend Collection: La Mode, Couture and Fad Papers, Border Stickers
Crate Paper The Pier Ephemera, Chipboard Stickers and Slide Frames, Flea Market Project Life, Gesso, Mister Huey’s Dark Calico Mist, Heidi Swapp Stamps, Daiquiri Thickers and October Afternoon Blue & Cream Mini Market Letters
