BEACH vacation

Yep!  That's what I could use right about now.  It is COLD here in New Jersey today (what is up with that Mother Nature?!?) and as I sit here and type this post my toes are numb and fingers are frozen.  Brrr .... Well since we won't be heading to the beach for at least another 4 months I might as well relive the memories a bit with this layout I created using the fabulous March kit Into The Woods from Studio Calico.  This layout actually uses bits and pieces from not only the main kit, but also several of the add ons as well. 

I loved the soft muted color palette of many of the papers in this month's kit and with this layout I was going for a whole sun, surf, and sand theme with the papers that I chose.  The wave paper from the Cosmo Cricket Salt Air collection is really fun and I fussy cut a strip to use as the border along the bottom of my KI Memories envelope as well as to hold several of my photos (not sure you can really tell from the pic but the photos are actually tucked behind several of the "waves" of the paper). 

I used my Silhouette to create not only the "BEACH" for my title but also this super cute sun embellishment that I then stitched to my page with a fun zig zag stitch.  And of course I added the "2010" stamp from the exclusive set included in the Sunny Clearing add on.  LOVE that stamp (I used it on another layout I'll be featuring tomorrow) and I can see myself using it over and over and over again!  That's all for me today - thanks for stopping by!  :)
