Embellish Something

This weeks challenge at Stamp Something is to Embellish Something...using at least three different embellishments on your project. The sponsor is My Little Ribbon shop, who donated the gingham ribbon and Cosmo Cricket chipboard button piece shown on my project below. It was the chipboard button and die cut "you make me smile" piece that inspired me to create this page.

The print on the button is the same color as the new Baja Breeze, and Baja Breeze makes me think of the beach. The beach makes me think of the Lazy Days wheel & Just Beachy set, and how I haven't made any scrapbook pages with these sets yet...so I dug out these photos of my son when he was an adorable five year old enjoying a day at the beach. (he's now a handsome 18 year old who can be quite a parenting challenge at times...so it's good to occasionally look back on those "cute years". I'm sure all you Mom's of teens can relate! lol) Anyways...his beach towel not only had a shade of teal which I planned to use for the background, but also Melon Mambo... score! I think this makes a perfect fun in the sun, beachy color scheme.

I also used: 12x12 Textured Taken With Teal & Basic Black card stock,Taken With Teal Craft ink, Photo Corner & Cute & Curly Label punches. (the little brackets were made using the Cute & Curly punch) The letters were cut using the Big Shot and the Go Slim Bigz dies. I also tried out a circle cutting tool I picked up after watching a demo at a scrapbook convention I recently went to. It's called the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. It works like a compass, so you can cut any size circle you want just by adjusting the setting. It sure made it easy to cut the rings I used on my layout. The best part is that it only cost 10.99.

Today looks like another hot one...too bad I won't be spending it at the beach! I'm sure I will make time to hop in the pool for a while. Stay cool, enjoy your weekend...and go embellish something!
