Sand Dude!

It's HOT outside!  No better place to hit than the beach!  For as long as I can remember, the moment my son hits the beach he dives into the sand to begin building a castle.  In this layout, I included some sand to help capture his ‘true love’ for the beach. 

I had fun embellishing this layout with lots of different things.  To begin with I used several pieces of pattern paper to create the banner. 

I decided to add the sand under the title so I used a Spellbinders die to cut out a wave. 

I ripped some a soowang tape sheet and folded it half back and placed the wave over half the sticky area.

Next I dumped the sand that I had collected over the sticky part and pressed it down.  You can buy scrapbooking sand or you can be sentimental and use the real thing! Next I pulled out the rest of the backing of the tape, added some pattern paper and trimmed it down to fit on my layout. 

I also used Spellbinders Nautical shapes too accent my page.  Using them as a stencil, I left the paper in the die and adding some liquid adhesive and then poured on more sand.

I was excited to find this trim in my stash of stuff.  It already had shells hanging off of it.  The perfect touch!
