Our Greatest Treasure

Its a beautiful sunnny day today a nice change after several rainy and overcast days.. The pool people were here already to see what we need to get the pool opened this summer.  This has me thinking about sprucing up the yard, shopping for bathing suits and getting our beach permit.    No, I think I'll scrap.  This is a layout I made using my Close To My Heart Foot Loose Paper Packet.  Just looking at this paper inspires summer thoughts. 

Last summer we went to the beach with our son and daughter (in-law) and our two little grandbeauties.  Pop Pop and the girls had so much fun hunting for treasures that came in with the waves and were buried deep into the sand.   Little do  they know........

                                  Our grandbeauties are our Greatest Treasure.

This is a layout I made using the Footloose Paper Packet From Close To My Heart.


The flowers were made using the exclusive Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

I cut the flip flops, startfish and leaves on the cricut using the Life's a Beach cartridge.  I made the flowers on the flip flops with the Art Philosophy Cartridge they are tiny and so cute. The straps are a chain type ribbon from Michaels.

Click for Idea Book See page 38-43 for entire FootLoose Collection
It comes with 6  12x12 double sides papers and 6  12 x 12  pieces of cardstock.  Order # X7151B.
There are two coordinating stamp sets that work beautifully with this paper pack. Under the Sea, (whimsical fish and phrases) and Just Chillin ( beach umbrella, chair, pail and shovel etc.)

We also have the Workshop on the Go Footloose Kit.  This a a great option.  Everything you need pattern paper, cardstock, an exclusive (to this kit) coordinating stamp set, wooden badge buttons and an instructional brochure.  Order # G1036  for everything you need to build 4 beautiful pages.

I will be entering this layout in the following challenges
