Ready for Summer?

Ahhh....life in the Midwest....it's winter time, cold, gray and icy.  Course, we don't have 30 inches of snow....I feel for my East Coast friends!

So I decided....who couldn't use a little sunshine right now?  I know I could, so I'm sharing a project that I had published in Scrap n' Art magazine this summer:

It was created using Paper House products...including their cute cork and die cut cardstock stickers!

The die cut sand castle has just a sprinkle of glitter....the cork'd stickers match up with the Colorways perfectly!

To give this an even more beach feel....I used a sanding block around the edges of the photo.

Another gorgeous die cut sticker....the seashell looks real, right?  It's wrapped in a piece of net and foam taped to the block.

The starfish is another die cut, and the glass knob was a dollar find at a craft store.

This is one of my favorite projects of our beach trip this past summer....I love home decor that is pretty and functional....and better yet....captures those precious memories! 

I really hope you are enjoying sunshine wherever you are....if not....it's time to create your own!
