My first project I did a scrapbook page of my husband and I. This was our first time by the ocean together. We were in connecticut visiting my sister Sarah and we took the day to go down by the ocean and collect seashells and rocks. We had a blast. So for these pages I used the seashells we found on the beach to frame a picture of us and to the accent the rest of the pictures. I also glittered all the seaweed, sayings and seashells with MS fine glitter. I love how this turned out. I hope you like how it turned out as well!!!







Well I hope you like what I did!! Like I said I did use a lot of MS glitter the paper I love its blue and white glitter swirls reminded me of the waves. Seashells are all from the Beach in CT.  Lots of love and time went into this project. :)


Since this is a 5 day hop I'll be annoucing my blog candy on the last day. In order to be entered, you need to become a follower of my blog and comment on each day of the hop. Ok, now on to the next blog April http://www.curlsngrins.blogspot.com/. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you tomorrow . Have fun!
