Lets Get Shabby Free Choice Birthday

Challenge #36 is up at Lets Get Shabby, and because it's our birthday, we're 3 years old, you can choose any challenge you like from the past 3 years.
I've chosen Challenge #7 from December of 2009 which was all about Summer in Australia.

Do you remember when you were kids and you spent the whole day at the beach; your towel got so wet it became useless and the only way to get warm before you went back in for your next swim was to lay in the warm, dry sand? Ah, so good. This is my nieces Ella and Indi and nephew Beau doing exactly that.

I've deliberately kept this page simple, using muted "beach" colours and adding texture for sand with glass beads mixed into texture paste and some embossing with Ranger weathered white embossing powder which creates a beautiful, rough "sandy" finish.

                                                                                   Materials Used:.....white cardstock; texture paste; dry medium glass beads; calico strips; darkroomdoor stamps; antique weathered white embossing powder; clear embossing powder; distress stains; Dusty Attic chipboard; Prima alphabet stickers.

We'd love you to play along with our birthday challenge. Get all the details here and there is a great prize as well from Purple Onion Designs
