Crab-y - Paper Issues

I am on a mission to document one of the best days of last summer.  
We spent the day at the Short Sands, with the Mastro's.  
We dug in the dirt, made a castle, buried people, splashed in the waves, boogie boarded and more. 

 Oh, we caught crabs.  
There is a little inlet with beautiful rocks when the tide is low.  
We went over there and searched for crabs and pretty shells.  Not to keep, but to see.
So, us girls found the crabs.  The boys came over and took pictures like it was theirs.  It wasn't!

For this layout, I used a fun challenge from Paper Issues.  It is called...

You must place all your goodies on the top 1/3  of the page, leaving 2/3 open.
You must play along by June 3rd.

I used 2 Fancy Pants collection.  The NEW Poolside and mixed it with the old Making Waves.

FUN - Paper Issues

Good morning!

Today I am participating in the Take 5 challenge over in the 

You can use any of the items on the list but you MUST use 5.  
This was super easy for me since I love to add lots of things to my layouts.
Here is the list....

I used: Pink, Blue, Flowers, Patterned Paper, Stripes, Bow, and Layers!  That is 7 things from the list!

Over Thanksgiving last year, my family went to see some dear friends in Texas.  
Since we were all girls, I used the girliest stuff I could find from the Paper Issues store!  I used Maggie Holmes Carousel collection made by Crate Paper.
I added a few flair for just the right added embellishments from A Flair for Buttons.

Love This Life - Paper Issues

Have you seen the Swag Bags over at Paper Issues?  I know I go on and on and on about them.  They are just that fabulous.  I love all the small bits and pieces that help bring a layout together in just minutes.  I am serious!  All I added were the 2 large sheets of paper, that matched what was in the Swag Bag and the Black thicker words and stars.  That is it.  

I took this photo some time ago of my cheesy kid at swimming lessons.  He is so cheeky and fun.  
I forget how small he was.  I hate that time goes by so quickly.  Too quickly.  

Anyway, go grab yourself a Swag Bag or anything else you need from the PI store for 20% off with code: Mary-Ann.
