Barefoot in the sand *Sketch 'n Scrap* - Creative Imaginations IOD (Beach Cottage)

Brenshevia made a beautiful sketch as a bonus challenge for December.  Go and check out the blog at Sketch N Scrap to see how the other designers interpreted this sketch.

Here is my layout.  The photos are of me and my sister Ansie while in Kidds Beach in December last year.
 Supply list: Cardstock for mounting photos:  Bazzill; Pattern paper: Creative Imaginations IOD (Beach Cottage); Epoxy stickers and shell diecuts:  Creative Imaginations IOD (Beach Cottage); Swirl rub on:  Cosmo Cricket; Flowers: Prima; Title: Silhouette; Border punch: Martha Stewart.

 I am loving my Silhouette.  I cut the two shapes on my background as well as the title with it.
 Some lovely epoxy stickers.

A pretty Prima bloom always finishes any project.

Here is Brenshevia's sketch.
