Since we are approaching spring break for a lot of people and many will head to the beach, I was inspired to use the Swirly Shells.

For this card I used Colonial White cardstock for the background.  I then took Sea Glass, Chrystal Blue and Glacier to make the water side.  I created the sand look with Dessert Sands, Champagne and Cashmere using a sponge.  I then watercolored the shells.  I used Sea Glass glitter paper and Kraft cardstock.

Remember that this month you can save 25% on all of the Close to My Heart Thin Cuts!! So stock up now!

I have been working on my on my personal challenge of designing a layout every week so I knew I would do a layout and I just happen to have some Easter photos that needed to be scrapbooked.

Easter Layout ~ Penelope ~ Spring Critters ~ Overlays ~ CatScrapbooking.comI knew the Penelope paper would be perfect for my Easter layout.  Here is a closer look at each side.  I apologize but the Honey color looks off to me and I just could not get right.

Easter Layout left ~ Penelope ~ Spring Critters ~ Overlays ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor the left side I used one of the white overlays and trimmed it to go over the lower right photo.  I used the Artbooking cartrige to cut the photo frame and backed it with silver glitter paper.  I had to to use that adorable fox with the Spring Critter stamp set since my son’s Easter basket was a fox.

Easter Layout right ~ Penelope ~ Spring Critters ~ Overlays ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is the right side, I also used one of the white overlay on the upper right photo.
