Shmashing

We spent our summer holiday in North Cornwall this year.  With its stunning beaches and huge waves, we all had a whale of a time.  We even had great weather on the whole. A little reminder of one visit to Polzeath beach...
The kids had a Shmoo Shake after a particularly hot afternoon.  I couldn't resist the cheesy title.
 Lovely Jackie cut out this chevron background on her Silhouette for me (gotta get me one of those). Having sat and stared at it for a while, I decided to go with putting lots of patterned papers behind it to build up the background.  I think as long as you use the same colour palette or tones throughout it works.


I added more bits from Dear Lizzy.  They go so well with The Dude with 'tude Boutique Buttons

 A layered up some odd papers from various places adding some random washi tape, journal spot (Maya Road) and paperclip (Habitat).


See those blue alphas?  They're Heidi Swapp and have been in my stash for years!  I couldn't bear to use them for all this time but I have to shmove on!


I sneaked in another button from the Typing Pool.  Just love these guys - so versatile!

Thanks for popping in.
