Scrapbooking Memories blog hop - Lazy days of summer

My first ever blog hop! And it's with Scrapbooking Memories, of all people and magazines! If you have joined me from Kim's blog, all is well; if not, go back to hers here. To the start from the beginning click here.

We are all doing different things, but there is a common thread, have you guessed it yet? My hint is: lazy
And here is my project:

  It's my husband's brothers, living the good life in Vanuatu. As you can see, they're working extremely hard... 

 ...about as hard as a pair of sloths in a tree...

I found this chipboard frame at Kaisercraft, it's a little bigger than 12x12". I painted it, crackled it, sanded it, misted it... the poor thing has seen 100 years of wear and tear in one afternoon.

The paper is all from the gorgeous new Tropicana collection, nice and beachy with a touch of vintage.

A lot of the embellishments, like the net, the beach sign and the charms came from the my2angels beach kit (click on the word to find it)

Would you like to know how to make this bottle cap embellishment? Click here to go to my bottle cap magnets tutorial, they are fun and easy and make great gifts for teachers and friends.

Thanks for dropping by! Please leave me a comment, have a guess at the theme, follow me and be a good little bunny and hop along to Sarah's blog here. Her post will be up Thursday morning.

Cheers, Geli
