Fun in the Sand

Its summer in Manila!!!

Sometimes hot,  sometimes rainy,  sometimes cold.  Oh,  I hate this weather changes  because of global warming!

Its a beautiful day today  and I here I am, alone in the corner of our room.  My son is out with his grandma and cousins while hubby is at work.  Yeay,  playtime for me in my scrap area!!!  Before,  I hide in my happy place  let me share with you my page that shouts summer!!!

These photos were taken during our summer vacation last year in Singapore.  We stayed in Sentosa and very near the Siloso Beach.  We had so much fun and we love going to the beach before and after visiting other places in Singapore.

Supplies: Patterned paper - Bo Bunny, Pink Paislee, October Afternoon, Websters Pages; Chipboard - Alpha (thickers), Key (rangers), clock (diecut from sizzix), button (Websters); others - washi tape, bakers twine.
 Close up on details:

 Painted white paint on the chipboard  before applying perfect pearls and bits of opal dusts:

This lay-out is inspired  from the sketch of Get Picky  and photo inspiration from Bellaidea's blog.  I used the green color of the garden and added the clock piece to frame the photos  as "gate".

Thanks for dropping by  and have a great weekend everyone!

This is beautiful, love the diecut background you've chosen, and the super-cool art-medium techniques you've used on the circular chipboard and the "sand" title letters...great work with both challenges!
