G45 By the Sea

I think By the Sea is such a delightful collection and it was the perfect collection to scrap these photos of my great niece at the beach.  Her Mom is probably trying to remember the outfit she is wearing because it really is hot pink.  Thanks to the wonders of Photoshop it is now red!  That hot pink just looked awful on this paper!!

I fussy cut a lot of the shells and starfish and tucked them in all over my layout.  I cut out part of the title paper, By the Sea, and used that to set my scene.  I backed it with My Anchor and popped up the entire top page so as to have a slight shadow box effect.

The sea oats were cut with a Spellbinder's cat tails die.  Then I sprayed with Lindy's Grab a Guy Gold and glued on microbeads for the oat heads.

Lots of Petaloo Darjeeling flowers.  You can see how the top page is popped up the make a shadow box effect here
