Shell We Go To The Beach ~SOUS Die Cut Challenge Crustacean~

Shell We Go To The Beach?

 I remember when I had started on the Cricut message board that I had posted a project with something misspelled. I had comments letting me know, private messages informing me of my error. I laughed...and then deleted the comments, LOL! 
 I bring this up because thanks guys...I already know!
 My title...
 But let me tell you, I had a heck of a time deciding on paper and font. This was my third time cutting and so my 3rd set of pattern papers, another new font...

 Shell We TO GO The Beach? 


 Oh well...moving along...

 This fun challenge....let me see if I can get this spelled right (auto corrector ready?) our 
Stuck on U Sketches die cut challenge...

 Crustacean (shells, shelled sea creatures, crab, lobster, etc)

 I was inspired by the Project Life like block designing for this and really enjoyed creating this way!

woodgrain base paper, MME Bramble Rose
yellow chevron and yellow/pink arrow design: Fancy Pants; The Good Life
yellow ledger and pink for word labels: Crate Paper; Farmhouse
blue polka dot (behind title words): Kaiser Craft; Check In
blue behind shells and yellow stripes: Paper Studio: The World Awaits
pink map print: Crate Paper: Storyteller 
Papertrey Ink, text background stamp in Scattered Straw
(tone on tone stamping on yellow ledger paper for title piece)
Die Cuts~
font, for title
shells, word labels and arrows
Silhouette Store/Designer Edition Software
heart paper punch
Basic Grey Fact and Fiction for diecut pieces, chipboard,
transparencies and flare/cloth brads
 Lil' Davis bottlecaps
American Crafts bakers twine
Stickles in yellow, diamond, baby pink

 For someone that never knows what I've used...writing thing down in a notebook as I create is super helpful! And all for YOU! =)  Can you stand how much printed paper I used! Geez, I literally had out 10 stacks of paper choosing prints for this! That hardest time to date on picking papers! Ugh!

 Hope you love! For the struggle this was, I'm really happy with the turn out...these photos each, are treasures to me! They each deserve their own scrapbook page...maybe someday...

 Well thanks for stopping by!
