Summer beach pages

Another thing I love about CTMH stamp sets is making my own paper designs. I wanted beach papers that matched James outfit and the blue in the swing. I could have spent many many hours shopping around for beach paper with those exact colors - or instead order the cardstock colors i wanted and make my own pages with the stamp sets "Daydream" and "footprints". I also used the Imagine book for the layouts.

I imbossed gold glitter on the tiny sea shells. Then I cut them out and added them to the page.

On the next two pages I used the embossing pen to emboss parts of the seashells i had stamped on the bamboo paper. This added just enough sparkle...

Thanks for the idea, I love the bit o' glitter on random sea shells.
