End of summer pages: Beach pages

My son LOVED Sand Beach at Acadia National Park. I had a lovely picture of him there and used it to scrap his memory.

I don't like using themey papers, so I pulled all the beach colored papers and products from a Studio Calico kit (most were actually office themed--October Afternoon's 9 to 5).

I pulled blues and greens to mat the photo, then add strips along the left. I also used my good old Fiskars Boundary Waters punch to add some theme--just a bit! I added blue and yellow stickers to the top of the mat.

Next--more of those darling wood grain birds, walking in the sand with my son.


I added some stitching, then put journaling strips inked in blue to the right.
So tell me--am I the only one who doesn't use themed products the way I'm supposed to? :-)

those birds are so cute! i love how you played up the beachy feel using the different sea colors! It's amazing how the beach looks tropical in your photo considering just how cold the water really is!
