My Little Beach Babe

When I saw the sketch over at Stuck on U Sketches, I knew I had the perfect photos to use. These pictures are of my daughter playing on the beach in Maui. We went for a walk one afternoon and the sun was just right and she was so playful... I couldn't help but take a few pictures! And being the ham that she is, she gladly played along! LOL!! I would really like to just freeze her at this age... is that possible?! (Maybe that is because my oldest daughter is turning 20 today!! I am soooo old!) Anyway... on to the LO!

I used DCWV paper (Fun in the Sun Summer Pack) and DCWV (Christmas Cardstock Stack)
Cricut Cartidges used: Easter (The doily type circle), Opposites Attract, Life's A Beach
Stickles: Cotton Candy, Stardust, Spiced Marmalade Distress
Thickers chip board stickers that I painted
Ribbons, brads, and vellum were all things I had in my stash!

I used vellum on the seashells and pop dotted them to give them the dimension I wanted. I added a little Stickles and I was good to go!

Challenges for this LO:
Stuck on U Sketches (sketch)
Practical Scrappers (use die cuts)
Die Cuts R Us (color - Sugar Rush)
Creative Belli Blog (ribbon)
Pile It On (Non winter colors)
Happy Scraps (Girly stash)
