Good morning everyone it's Belinda with another fun layout!!  It is almost Thanksgiving, can't believe the year is almost gone!  I don't make pages by the time of the year, so this might seem a little off for this time of the year.  Here in Texas you can go to the beach anytime of the year.  However this picture was taken in Oceanside, CA during summer vacation.  We really had a great time there and spent almost everyday at the beach.  I would like to share my beach layout with you!!

You will be able to find all the instructions and products used on this layout HERE!

I made the sand by tearing 2 strips of 12 inch white cardstock.  Once I liked how it looked I inked the cardstock with versamark and embossed using Hit The Beach embossing powder.  This really made a nice look, just the right amount of sparkle!

I them stamped the cars, surf boards, palm trees, fences and flip flops from the Surfin' Woody stamp set.  All of these images were colored using copic markers, cut out and stamped with versamark and embossed using Sparkle embossing powder.  The flip flops were embossed using Dark Night.

To create the water I repeat the tearing of cardstock using blue cardstock, on the top and bottom edges I used Dimensional Glue and Waterfall glitter.

I used a 4" dolly to create the sun and tucked it under the blue cardstock. The sparkle you see is Evening Glow.

To add those soft clouds to the white cardstock, I used half of a medium scallop punch, punched twice onto cardstock to create a mask and soft pastel chalks.

To finish off the page a cute banner and letters for a really fun page!!

Looking forward to next year's fun on the beach!  I always have a wonderful time on the beach with my 2 favorite boys!!

Hope you all have a for wonderful Thanksgiving.  I know in my family we have many blessing to be thankful for!!!
