Sandtastic

I am working on my album of our families trip to Monterey. Today I have a page I made for the album that I am entering into the challenge at Once Upon A Sketch
You were to use this sketch:

I did some machine stitching and cut the seagulls with my Life's a Beach Cricut cartridge at 2 & 2 1/2"




Supplies used: cardstock - kraft; patterned paper - boogy board, hawaiian stripes and marina from Beach Bum by Fancy Pants; alphabet stickers - Mellow by Basic Grey; journaling spot - Jenni Bowlin; seagulls cut from Life's a beach Cricut cartridge; sewing machine and brown thread

Your comments make my heart happy, thank you!

Esther-I love he title. The color combo goes with with it too. I had to giggle when I saw the sea gulls. I grew up on Lake Huron. It has been a few years since I was there and I had forgotten about the seagulls until I saw your LO! Thanks for a rush of home memories! LOL http://visionsofpaper.blogspot.com/
