On the Beach with this week's challenge at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog

This week at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Dazzling Ace Designs!!!! Of course it's always Anything Goes but this week with an optional twist - on the beach!!!!! 

When I saw the images from which to chose from, I was immediately drawn to a picture of my mother and grandmother in their bathing suits at the beach which then became my inspiration: 

  • Recollection brown card stock for size A2 card with DCWV The Linen Stack as the background
  • image is pre-colored with chalk around the edges
  • wanted a vintage photo album feel thus the need for the corners attached to image which were cut using built-in Essentials to Cricut E-2 using black Recollection cardstock
  • silver high heel charm from Miriam's Crafting Supplies 
  • sentiment, "The best thing about the Good Old Days . . . We weren't good, and we weren't old" had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC was chalked around the edges with and mounted on scraps 

  • seashells both on the front and on bottom of sentiment are Darice Stickerz
