It's A Beach Thing

Hi there ...

We've had some storms here ... Lots of rain too
I'm glad for the coolness ... We don't have air conditioning here in the UK ... Well, some may have it ... But I don't know anyone who does because we never really need it ... But I could have used it this last month ... Sleeping has been difficult ...

Anyhow, I picked up the new digital paper set from Pink Petticoat recently which is beach themed and I got to play with it at the weekend
I had a plaque that has hooks on it ... Never used it ... It just didn't fit in with anything ... So I pulled it out and decided to create something with it


I guess I should have photographed the 'before' ... but I didn't ... I just went right ahead and slapped some paint on ...
I'd had this idea in my head since I came back from Cornwall ... being on the coast and full of fabulous beaches ... you can imagine that there are lots of pictures, plaques and souvenirs with  beach themes - and plenty of well worn flip flops around! That's how I wanted these flip flops to look ... 


After covering my painted plaque with 3 different papers from the Pink Petticoat range and then sanding it at the edges to give it a 'worn' look I set about making flip flops, drawing a template and then cutting them out of cardboard and paper - adhering them together then adding foam soles 
I kind of like them ...


The rope like everything else was in my stash and the flowers were once upon a time ... earrings
I've been hoarding travel themed stickers and things for over a year ... promising myself I would do some scrapping to memorialise our cruise ... It just didn't happen (yet) ... so I used a few on my plaque


Whilst I really like this ... you know, I don't know where I am going to put it ... It doesn't exactly fit in either ... maybe my shower room .....
Oh well, I had fun ....

I'll be back tomorrow with the City Crafter Challenge ... Till then 
Thanks for stopping by 

Have a great day
