At the Beach...

Good day fellow bloggers...Sandi posting here today with a layout of my sweet girl. I made this using papers from IOD Beach Cottage collection and lots of goodies from Your Memories Here Store. I won the complete collection in a giveaway IOD had on their Facebook  Like page and I tell you it is gorgeous...perfect for beach pages! The flowers are from Prima  and I also added a little Prima Lace to the corner and behind the flower cluster
 Some of the flowers were white so I changed their color with Glimmer Mist and I also did the same with the seam binding. I had always used hot glue to fasten my embellishments because it was fast but if I decided to move it after, I ended up tearing my paper. But now I use Helmar Quick Dry Adhesive and I LOVE dries really fast but also allows me to move my embellie around a little if I am not liking it's placement.
I whitewashed the look of my layout by using gesso and the little glass bottle was originally filled with glitter but I emptied it and filled with sand from the beach behind our house. I punched some of the butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch and added Prima E-Line pearls for the bodies.
I am loving the little kite that I made from a couple different papers from the collection. So be sure to check out the YMH store and I would love for you to visit my blog! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
