Playing in the Sand - New Layout

Hello! We had a playdate, two birthday parties, and a million errands to run today. Tomorrow is yet another birthday party, and I am exhausted. Somehow in between all of this I finished this layout of Maddie in her sandbox. 


I created this layout using the Sketches4All - August "Summertime Anything Goes" challenge. I am Guest Designing over at Sketches4All this month, so I wanted to play along with this great challenge. The challenge is simple, create a project using the "Summertime Anything Goes" theme and use the sketch below:


I am also linking up with Paper Issues - Um Wow Chipboard challenge. I used a CTMH chipboard arrow, chipboard Thickers, and K&Company chipboard letters.

For my title, I used the word "Play" in "playing in the sand" for the Colorful Creations - August Song Challenge. This month the challenge is to use a word(s) from "Private Eyes" by Hall & Oates.

Finally, I played along with Scrap Our Stash - Stash Challenge #6 Summertime. This challenge is to create a Summer themed layout and you MUST include (3) or more pre-made Die-Cut embellishments from your stash! I used a lot of different die-cuts on this page including the large view finder for journaling, the details piece, the canvas cloud, the little star that I added a pop-dot to, the red file tab at the bottom, and the cork shape piece next to the fence. 

Here are a couple of close-up photos:



    
Materials Used: paper - Simple Stories; ribbon - Michaels and unknown; chipboard arrow - CTMH; border punch - Fiskars; Canvas shape - LYB; corkboard shape - LYB; stickers - Simple Stories, Jolee's; chipboard alphas - Thickers and K&Company; canvas alphas - Deja' View; cricut - George & Basic Shapes; view finder die-cut - Studio Calico.

Thanks for visiting!

I love the way you separated your title and it just finally hit me why I keep singing your title - it's almost "Playing in the Band" (Grateful Dead)! So much fun! I love your LO! The cork and the linen work so well with the sandy nature of your pictures! Thanks so much for sharing!
