My niece Jill takes the best photos! Her daughter is such a great subject. This photo is so awesome, I couldn't resist creating a layout with it.

The journaling reads: The beach at the hotel was bayed off so the waves were so very mild which was wonderful for Lucy. She thought she loved the beach. At least she loved it for two days.

I used mirror image on the fish to get them to face each other. The seashells were cut/embossed from Core’dinations cardstock and sanded to bring out the detail.

I used these wonderful Spellbinders™ products:
S4-273 From the Sea
S4-205 Eyelet Pendants
S4-235 Fancy Tags
S4-016 Shells
S4-214 Eyelet Borderabilities Petite

And these other terrific products:
Core’dinations: Black Cherry, French Vanilla from The Chocolate Box collection
Core’dinations: Barn Siding, Antique Vanity from the White Wash collection
Paper: Upsy Daisy Designs: Sophie Love-Circle of Friends
The Paper Company: Bright Pink and Turquoise Shimmer
3L-Foam Squares (These are my favorite pop ups!
Glue Dots: Mini Dot n Go
The Robin’s Nest: Asst. Dew Drops
Copic Sketch Markers: R24, RV14, Y08

And that netting? It's from a bag of oranges I bought. You can use anything!

Please tell me what you think! Thanks for stopping by.
