Beach Frame - Party Prize

My friend Carmen came across this fantastic Graphic 45 paper at Tuesday Morning a few months back and picked some up for use to split. I was of course thinking about my cruise layouts but decided to use some for a frame since there was quite a bit of it.

Supplies Used:
12x12 Memory Frame
Graphic 45 On The Boardwalk
Ranger Memory Slide
Shells from Puerto Rico
Starfish Charm
Colorbox Chalk Ink

 All the images are from the Graphic 45 paper. I did cut around the men from a different sheet of paper but I thought they were just too dang cute not to use. I love the vintage look of this and I might need to make one for myself!

I had a heck of a time getting sand in that little blister for the Memory Slide and I think it all ended up falling out anyway. I am really going to have to practice using stuff like that. The other items stuck in there well and went so together so nicely with the theme. I still had some shells from one of my cruise's and then added a starfish charm that my friend Carmen had given me in an assortment she had sent.

I was afraid the frame looked a little plain compared to my other ones I had made for prizes but there were a few guests who really commented on liking this one. One of them was BFF Karen, who of course lives for the beach so it only made sense she would love this one!


  1. I saw that paper at my TuesMorn, too. I thought "What in the world could I use that on?" I think I'm a bit baffled by all the bold patterns in G45, but you rocked it. So now all I need to do is go on a cruise, buy the paper and do some layouts. LOL!

  2. Oh I like this, Okie. Love the vintage look and the guys in the old timey suits are too fun.

  3. great layout. i have this stack in an 8"x8". i never think i want the 12"x12", then i see something like this and wished i had the bigger size.

  4. OMG, that's a great card... And Lucy is looking very happy to be a part of your scrapping world, lol. I love you shelving in your scrap room. Can you tell me how to get an update on cricut, I just got the new cart Baby Steps and like most of us that uses CDS I would sure like to update to use my new cart, Thanks so much for your help...
    Have a wonderful Day, Hugs
