Beachy LO's ~Generations Crafting~

Beach Boardwalk

Let me just start by saying I was so excited to use this line of papers! Oh my gosh! I think these were the sweetest ever and the gloss accents on the papers just made them that much better!

You can find Imaginisce Splash Dance HERE at Generations Crafting.

I used Lifes a Beach for my title, welded in DS. And a few acrylic, glitter accents. I also had the chance to use the new I Rock tool by Imaginisce. It is a small, light weight tool that sets bling onto whatever project you may be doing. What I like about it (well one, its pretty cheap and if you don't know me by now...I like cheap) is that you can buy compacts with a TON of gems and a ton of sizes available per compact. I just think thats pretty cool!

Ok I am also posting today in hopes on not missing any challenges that I am trying to include with these. Here are some:

Pile it On~ I have to start here because without these fine ladies and the challenges that they part take in, well I'd never know where to start! LOL! This week, Stickers! Most of my titling was done with sticker alphabets.
Papertake Weekly~ ice cream colors...both LO's really do remind me of sherbets!
ABC Challenge Blog~ Xtra dimension. For this LO I popped the entire stripe at the bottom, as well as my clear accents. I love how that made it look in person! (my second page is rather flat, which may be one reason it didn't quite work out for me)
Charisma~ Bling, easy with my new IRock tool!!!
If the Shoe Fits~ Circles, Bling and Paint. I guess most of this you can see for yourself, except the use of a paint pen for some writing.
The second LO was inspired by Sketches In Thyme but I missed that by a day (dang!)

Ok I think I will call the sketches quite, I am sure I missed something that I wanted this included in (I'll just beat myself up for that later! LOL!)

This LO is a trip to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk. I love it there and so do the kids! I ADORE these photos of them!!!

So I put this together and it just didn't turn out like I would have liked. I know its the upper tag and its placement, as the fact that I don't have any dimension. But anyways...this was a first family trip. Jordyn turned 4 months old and Scotti was just about to turn 2. We were in San Louis Obispo at a conference for my husband work. He is no longer in the position but was an arson investigator at the time.

This was my first time with many of these challenge blogs, thank you for having me! I have really enjoyed the blog hop!
And thank you to Generations Crafting for the opporunity to showcase you're amazing products!

I have these same papers but alas no current pix to go with them, so guess I'll have to dig around for some old ones of the kiddos! Great job!
