My Little Shoebox - Sky's The Limit

I have a few fun projects to share with you today. They were all created using In Bloom by My Little Shoebox. This line is so whimsical you can't help but take a creative leap outside of the box!
This layout titled "Sunshine Boys" is probably my fave! I designed it to look like a beach scene; I even used real sand.
The boys and I went on a field trip to the lake with Xander's daycare this past Summer. Neither of them had any interest in getting in the water...Xander even cried when I tried to put him in. They were just content with playing in the sand.


I adhered the 1st part of the title with foam squares so that I stood up from the background a bit.



The sand is from a beach in Bermuda. My mom collected some for me and I decided to put it to use. I tore 3 strips of line paper from this collection, fovered them with wet adhesive the covered with sand. I tapped off the excess sand and sprayed them with Creative Imagination's super seal to stop the sand from falling off.

I drew the shovel by hand, traced the crab on cardstock and pieced it together.

This is a quick layout featuring another photo from our family photo shoot.

Here's a close-up of my handmade flowers

Into every life, a little rain must fall...
Here's the story behind this photo.
I got a little creative with the mittens here. The "fur" cuffs are actually clouds that I cut from patterned paper.

Thanks for taking a peek, have a wonderful week!
