Hey crafty friends! I am sorry I have been out of commission for over a week! I was so blessed to be able to attend the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Charlotte! My best friend, Holly and I attended 4 classes and a crop, and were able to view so many beautiful samples of papercrafting projects at the vendor fair booths! I hope to post some of our fun pics very soon. Also, I am thrilled beyond words to have been chosen as part of the Fabulous Friday Design Team for Frosted Designs! You can visit their blog at http://frosteddesigns.blogspot.com. Be sure to visit Frosted Designs blog often, as you will find sketches, tutorials, challenges and lots of inspiration from very talented papercrafters from all over the world! You'll be able to see my first project this Friday, September 2nd

I just completed this layout for Sketchy Thursdays 8.11! This was a great layout to work with, and I may use it again! We love to visit Nana at Thanksgiving each year, and one of our favorite things to do is swim! For this layout I used products from Close To My Heart, Fancy Pants, and My Mind's Eye! For the waves, I used Cricut cart: Life is a Beach.

A simple styrofoam cup, a dab of acrylic paint, and a fan brush from Close To My Heart! The cup was what I had handy, but I would have rather used a reusable container!
Here is a close-up of my simple rough painting technique. I like the texture it added to my layout, and I didn't need to layer as many sheets of paper!
Here is the finished painted background sheet! Let me know if you try this technique! I would love to see your creations! **Please hop over to my Monthly Challenge Page, and enter my August 2011 challenge! **
