Playtime in the sand

Me and the kids headed off to the beach last weekend while Greg was away rehearsing for the first gumball theatre show on the 27th in Brisbane (go on, check it out!). It was our first time back at the beach this summer and the kids spent hours playing in the sand. If only all days could be so peacefull... The journalling says, "First beach day this summer and the kids are totally absorbed with playtime in the sand".

I used Shell's "Apple of my eye" LO as a starting point. We scraplifted it once before in a crop and I wanted to do another one.

I used foam strips for the title letter, an idea I saw on Leanne's page.

And I like the little hand pointing to the month:

The circle got distressed, torn, sewn, crumbled, rolled, buttoned...
What can't we do to paper?!

I started out with white lace and used some walnut ink to change the colour:

Thanks for looking!


  1. i really like everything about the design of this LO Geli...really lookin' forward to finding some pics to go with it :) tfs; btw Good luck to Greg - is the show based on the style of "whose line is it anyway" ? looks very funny and maybe u could use some of those pics on the website to scrap ?? xx

  2. An impro show is very similar to "thank God you're here". The whole show is based on random input from the audience. It's totally awesome and very, very funny.

  3. woot woot.. i love this page.. so bright and super fun.. coolio..fantasticall...

  4. Hi Geli, I just had to come & see what you are up to now. wow!

  5. This is way cool, I love how all your embellies are just perfect for the layout
