For my project I combined the Surf and Swim Collection from Trinity Arts with several Clearsnap products to create a two-page layout of last season' s T-Ball photos.

I loved how the more theme neutral B-sides of these papers allowed me to choose my own occasion, even though they are perfect for beach photos. For the background, I used a mask to spray Smooch Spritz in Navy Twinkle.

Also used several of the Design Adhesives (Sentiments, Banner Wishes, BBQ) with Designer Foils (Cherry, Seaport) to highlight the visual triangle.

See the cute little banner Design Adhesives? Love those and don't think I will ever get over banners - they make the perfect embellishment!

Also did a little stamping on the photo. Chalk inks are perfect for stamping on glossy surfaces. I also used them to hightlight the edges of all the papers for a bit of extra dimension. The Primary Petal Point has all the colors you need to coordinate with this paper pack.

And that's all from me today! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win!

WOW! I love all the work you did on this double page layout. It is so cute and the accents with the foil lettering and colored edges are fantastic. Your use of the inks, foils, smooch, and papers is fantastic. Great job!

This is such a great layout. I like that you used Beach colors for something that's not beach themed at all, but it's perfect! Love all the orange and blue!
