Beach Bums Layout

A little of a later post today, it's been a pretty busy few weeks so I enjoyed sleeping in a bit this morning!  So nice.  I have been plugging away at our Disney/California album and I'm happy to say that after this months scrapbook club, I am almost done.  I think I have one more 12x12 layout and then a couple of my pocket pages to finish up and it will be done!  So nice to check something else off my project list.

Today's layout is a simple one using some new patterned paper called Maritime.  The colors (Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White) worked perfectly with the beach photos. I loved that this layout can be done using 1 sheet of patterned paper, a couple 1/2" strips and 2 sheets of cardstock.  The two wider vertical strips are 3"x12", then I flipped it over and the diagonal pattern is on the back so I cut a 4-1/2"x12" strip - and cut that at 9".  The 9" length went on the left and the 3" strip on the right.  The red strips are 1/2"x12" which I cut from another pattern in the same pack.  The  banner was created using bits and pieces.  Quick and easy!  At this point I just want to get it done, so my family can enjoy it!

Here's a closer look at the pages...
The title was created using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz die which is retiring:(
Both of them look so young in these photos (2012).  They grow up so quickly!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a creative day!
