KIU Jan 2010 - Summer LO

ok done another LO last night .... this time for the KIU Jan challenge. You had to create a LO based on Summer, well when i was on holiday I took a photo of my Havai's and Suncream which I thought I could scrap as they are my Summer Essentials! If I dont wear suncream I burn.... i think i actually squeal when I see the sun my skin is so fair! damn the fair skin, wish I had the Jamaican skin which is in my family a few generations back! Oh yeh n i always wear my trusty havaianas, i have quite a few pairs but the silver ones r my fav!

My Summer Essentials

I have really used a lot of bits n pieces here. when i went to go n get some kraft out of my stash low n behold i had none!!! wtf?? how can i run out of kraft, so thought i would use some old trusty corragated (sp) card as the base..... K&C paper, Prima packaging with tissue paper glued to it, maya road envelope stamped with prima stamp in white paint, netting, lots of twine, prima vine, heidi swapp alphas, MLS alphas, scrapware chipboard, Pink Paislee Artisian Element AND all the shells etc are from Starvation Bay my mum collected them for me and I said to her that what on earth would I want them for?? well here they are!! she had stashed them in my glovebox for me to find!


the envelope has some journalling in it about where the shells are from and how they ended up on this page.....

this one bit


Until next time :)
