Maggi here to share some summer with you ’cause it is that time of year when many of us are suffering from the winter blues and yearning for summer.   Grab a cup of your fave and forget about winter, if only for a moment, while checking out this layout.

I’ve combined some great chippies from Creative Embellishments (CE) with Graphic 45’s new Sun Kissed paper collection.  I mixed tan acrylic paint and gold glitter with Prima’s White Sand Texture Paste to create my sandy beach.  I anchored CE’s seagrass chippies stained with Lindy’s Starburst mists in the sand.  Over on the right is a cute little chipboard crab nestled in amongst the navy Little Birdie flowers.

The photo is framed with a chipboard Steampunk Chain Frame that is heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Marine Embossing Enamel.  The frame also comes with gears that I buried in the sand.  They get their rusty look from Lindy’s Starburst Mist.
