Beach Boy

Hello friends! I hope you had a great week. I must say, I am loving the colors in this month's Clique kit. And since I live 4 blocks from the beach, I have a good amount of beach photos to choose from. I am a big fan of taking candid shots and scrapping them. It's a good thing because my son does not like it when I take his photos. Sigh

 
 
I am sharing a layout where I played with a variety of patterned paper to create a fun background for my layout. I selected a few patterns that I felt, matched the photo perfectly. Once I had the background designed, I added the photo and started adding embellishments.
 
 
I decided to add the vacation vibes frame on to the photo to use as a place to add my journaling! I used a slick writer so my ink would not smear. Then I added a few die cuts! LOVE the wave die cut.
 
 
I used the chipboard alphas from the July Kit paired with the silver metallic alphas from this month's kit to create a fun title. Oh, and I had to add the smilies! So cute.

Thank you for visiting today!
