Got Crabs?

Hello! Hope your week was wonderful! It has been hot, muggy and rainy here lately....oh well! We are still managing to have fun.

I am "supposed" to be packing for our trip but....I took a few moments to scrap a picture I took of the two little ones at Ft. Walton beach. We stopped there on the way back from Disney a month ago....now this beach has oil on it. Very sad....

I created this quick layout for the American Crafts challenge this week. The challenge is to create a layout sharing what you are doing on your summer vacation that uses two or more AC products.

One of my kids favorite things to do on the beach is dig for sand crabs. They will dig for hours filling a bucket just to let them all go. But....they do this without fighting, which makes it one of my favorite summer moments too!

Here is the page.
For the title, I used some Mini Market Ledger stickers (October Afternoon) and then I cut the number 4 from Everyday:Long Time No See designer paper (American Crafts). I used my favorite letter stickers from American Crafts to spell out CRABS (Sarah Script).Here is a close-up shot of the sun---I used an Amercian crafts rub on (Mini Marks-Pounce Phrases) on top of a Jillibean Soup sprout to create the sun. I cut some American Crafts fabric paper (Garden Gala) to create the rays for the sun. Finally, I added some gemstones around the edge:
Here is a detail shot of the bottom corner. I used another rub on (Pounce Phrases) on top of a smaller picture of the two kids. I added stickers for the date. I cut the birdhouse from fabric paper (Garden Gala: Dear Lizzy/American Crafts) and added a patterned chipboard shape heart sticker (Thickers-Dear Lizzy/AC) on it. The flower is from Details Adhesive Layered Embellishemnts-Chatter- Dear Lizzy /AC)....I removed the flower layer from the background felt to use with another chipboard shape on top of a punched circle. I layered this on top of some Everyday ribbon (American Crafts):
That is it! Back to packing :)
