Seeking Adventures

So yes, I'm into a "beach" phase here - pulling out all the beach photos to scrap! This one was taken earlier this year at Changi Beach. I chose these papers from MME because they match the colours in the photo so nicely, and I just love the postcard design.

I did some major tearing here, for a really distressed and vintage look, and came upon this idea to actually tear a large chunk of the paper out from one side and insert my stamped journaling under it. I like how this turned out.

And not to mention some lovely and very matching embellishments from Prima. I love their new crystal and pearl flourishes with lace attached. Aren't they gorgeous?

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
