Happy as a Clam

TGIF! How was your week?? I've been working on this layout for a couple days and am "happy as a clam" to call it done ;) I really like how it turned out !! 

I used the new "Makin' Waves" line from Imaginisce and am entering it in their "sunny" July challenge:


Our niece, Alexandra, definitely was "happy as a clam in the sand" playing at the beach !! Forget the sandcastle, she was so content just to sit in the wet sand and play.


Look at that smile! :) :) I made a "photo corner" using surf boards I cut from one of the patterned papers in the collection, embellished with a twine tied button.


I love adding detail to the super cute die cuts from Imaginisce. I used yellow stickles and google eyes on the sun to really make him shine (above) and REAL sand from the beach on the sandcastle (below). The little crabby got google eyes too ;) Couldn't leave anyone out!


I cut my larger title using the orange chevron B side to one of the patterned papers using my cricut - and the subtitle at the bottom with mini alphas. I added buttons to balance out the opposite corner. I tore the craft paper to resemble more sand :)


Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you did something that made you "happy as a clam in the sand: :) Speaking of which, I'm also sharing this layout at Scrapfit for using a long title! 

Have a fabulous weekend. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain!
