Spring Break wishes!

So here in Oregon, Spring Break is winding down, but I know that elsewhere Spring Break will be starting up. And for lots of us, Spring Break equals a trip to the ocean!
Up here the Pacific is COLD, a bit too cold to swim in, but the beach always makes for AMAZING photos. And amazing photos, always make for GREAT layouts. Combine that with incredible, shimmery paint and just can't lose.

Here are 2 different layout ideas for you to use for any forthcoming spring break beach trips or any beach/lake photos that you might have gathering dust:
Spray your background with Penny Pincher and Jeni B Bleu Vibez to perfectly match the sand and sea!

For On The Beach, I was inspired by Miss Lucy Edson and a challenge that she hosted at inspireME, where the two of us are on the Webster's Pages Design Team together. She had a great challenge to print photos on patterned paper and then I combined it with my favorite technique of spritzing my photo paper..and the two together were complete magic:
A quick shot of Rolling in the Hay Vibez, adds a nice neutral shimmer without distracting the eye

So there are several ideas and colors that will help bring out the best in any beach layout that you create!
Happy Spring Break!
