Yes, this is in my kids' sandbox and yes, I did get a little bit of sand in my Thickers, but I think it was well worth it!
Here on the "boardwalk" you can get a closer look at my collection. I followed the selection of cardstock pretty closely, along with the addition of the text paper. I just love the turquoise colors, so I included several different patterned papers in that hue. On the far left are 2 different wood grains and the obligatory chevron (I do love them, it just seems that they are always in there!) and a chevron mask for the off-chance I can't find some of that zig zag pattern. The only exact match I had was the Mini Market stickers in orange, so in they went along with a light turquoise set of Thickers. Here are some close-ups of my embellies:
Some orange chevron (there it is again!) ribbon, My Mind's Eye brads, and a stamp set with similar images as the original kit.
I used my Cricut "George" cartridge to cut out those blurbs out of ledger paper.
The Pink Paislee chipboard hexagons from their Nantucket line are just as quaint as their namesake. I wouldn't mind my Seaside Villa in that location! And some wood veneer shapes from Close to My Heart are a perfect souvenir.
Just love that vintage slide from Jenni Bowlin Studios and that "vintage" woodgrain boat and frame came from a stash swap over at Lain Ehmann's Scrap Happy membership site. I think it is from My Mind's Eye from several years ago, but I loved the woodgrain. Just goes to show you that if you hold onto stuff long enough, it comes back into style!
So, are you convinced to spend a few days at the "Seaside Villa"? I wouldn't wait too long to book your stay. Before you know it, there will be a "NO" on the vacancy sign. Grab your scissors and your sunscreen and join me for an enchanted retreat.
