Beach Babe

Beach Babe

I am seriously longing for beach days right now.  Anybody?  It’s to believe that it has ever been hot enough here for my kiddos to play on the beach but this big rock is sometimes enough to sheild the cool, coastal breeze.  My kids love to play in the sand regardless of the weather!

To create this layout, I used some yummy Lily Bee Design Hello Sunshine pattern paper.  Appropriate don’t you think?  I made my black border with Spellbinders Parisian Accents and my tab with  Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles.   I also put together my own flower and butterfly embellishment using some Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist as well as Rose Creations and Fanciful Flight.  On the Spellbinders blog, you can read a tutorial on how to make a banner using Banner Basics Three and Sparkle n Sprinkle glitter!

My three sweeties are off to school today for the first time in a week and a half.  They were dragging their feet just a tad and I was wishing we had just a few more days together.  Hoping that summer will get here quickly!

If you noticed a new look to blog, it is still under construction.  But, I did want to let you know that I my beautiful banner was designed by Viola Mahr.  She has some fabulous vintage items in her Viola’s Etsy shop.  Her creations are amazing and I must say she is one very talented young lady!

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
