Summer blog hop...it's Summer somewhere!


Well it's getting colder by the day here in Sunny Queensland, and I am sitting here with my little heater on, but over in California, the home of Best Creation, the Summer holidays are just beginning and so we are celebrating with a Summer Blog Hop.

So, you should have arrived here from Katarina's blog. If not, head back to the Best Creation blog to get all the instructions you'll need.

I have used some brand new release Splash Fun papers to create this fun layout from a family trip to the beach.

I love all the different ways the die cut papers can be used. On this I cut the inside away to create a frame, which I positioned slightly off the page. I used smaller photos so I could use two without cluttering my page. I cut and overlayed some wave shapes, and some individual water spurts for embellishments.

Best Creation has been partnering with Helmar adhesives..who I also design for, so naturally I used plenty of Helmar product on this. Being glittered papers, a slightly more durable adhesive is a good idea. Helmar 450 or premium craft glue are both perfect. I raised both my embellishments and photos on Helmar Zapdots.

And of course we have lots of chances to win some of
our New June releases and 6x6 mini packs too. Be sure
and leave a comment on either Facebook or the blog
or sign up as a new Follower!!!


Next you are heading off to see Kim Holmes. Thanks for visiting.
