Beachy Fun!!

Since it is still so incredibly hot down here in Alabama (we are still hitting high 90's everyday), I figured I might as well work on some fun summer layouts! The beach dies from the Aug under the Sun Release are so much fun and are such must haves for all of your summertime activities.

For my layout today, I am featuring the Cottage Cutz Pail and Shovel die. This die is another one of those great dies that comes with several different shapes any of which could stand alone. In my pictures, my girls were carrying their sand bucket to use to hold their crab catch. Therefore, I just used the bucket to accent my title. I "hung" the bucket from the curve in the letter "s" from my title to emphasize the bucket.

I also used the Cottage Cutz Loops Edger to add some accents around the layout. I LOVE theses edgers because I did not have any ric rac the right color and I was getting irritating and then I remembered my edgers! Of course once I started looking through my edgers, I found my Loops one and decided to use that one instead of ric rac. I hope you have a great weekend and get a chance to do a little scrapping, too!!

What beautiful layouts, Ruth Ellen! Your pail and shovel die works perfectly with your wonderful photos. I love the arrow pointing to the crabs, and that loopy border. Those are some precious and happy looking little girls! Thanks so much for sharing!

I love the way you showcased the pail with the crabs. The arrow and circle draws the eyes right to it.
Nicely done! Great photos! Looks like a good time!
