Summer is coming to an end

And next weekend we are going to make a trip to the beach before the school year craziness starts. Last year we had a wonderful beach vacation, and although I am not a big fan of the sand I enjoyed some quality time relaxing with the hubby. I really enjoyed working with the American Crafts Margarita collection and putting together this layout.


I wanted to keep the chipboard title simple but I wanted to use a nice size font so I looked in my stash and pulled out these green scenic route alphas, that unfortunately didn't match my color scheme.



No worries, I just removed the green layer -



And painted the raw chipboard with a white acrylic paint, added some stickles and my title was done. This is a good way to stretch your supplies.
