My Little Beach Bum Book!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!!

I am excited to share a fun, bright and quick project with you all today!!

I LOVE to make lists...I get great pleasure from making a list of things that I have to do, and then crossing them off as I get them done...I guess that makes me a bit Type A right (grin!!).

I found this SUPER cute (and super bright) tropical lined notebook at Michaels last week at lunch (and it was in the $1 bin too!), and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be PERFECT with any of the images from the Beach Bum set from Taylored Expressions!!

I started by stamping my sand castle building cuppie twice in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I colored the cuppie, sand pail and sand shovel with Copic Markers and then cut them out. I then colored the entire image and framed it with Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities. Using Foam Tape from the Taylored Expressions Store (my absolute FAVORITE way to pop up my images!), I popped up the cuppie, pail and shovel!!

I anchored my image on a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock that I ran through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, and added TONS of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles (I LOVE these!!!).

I finished off my happy little book with TONS of fun, bright ribbons!! I am going to keep this on my desk at work to brighten up my work day!!

Thanks SO much for taking a look!!!

Oh gosh, this is SO bright and SO fun!! I love it!!

....and I'm totally the same with lists and crossing things off. Matter of fact, sometimes I write down something that HAS already been done JUST so I can cross it off. Yeah, I'm the life of the party, huh? ;)

ADORABLE book - from one list maker to another. I even write my #1 as "make list" so that I can experience the immediate satisfaction of crossing something off and having already accomplished something, LOL.
