This past weekend I attended the most amazing classes at Let's Get Creative taught by Suzy West. They were held at the Prima Outlet in Chino, California. I learned some (new to me) techniques and created some gorgeous layouts. And today I would like to feature two of these amazing creations!!

This is a photo of me and my boys at the beach in San Clemente this summer. I love the ocean and am glad my kids do too. I can't keep them out of the water.

I just love the way we used corrugated cardboard box for the photo mat. And the way we framed it is just gorgeous. There are so many lovely details to look at!

My surfer boys. Well not really! But they do Boogie Board. More pics of them from our trip to San Clemente this summer.

These layouts feature gorgeous Prima flowers and the new "SEA SHORE" paper line and chipboard diecuts by Prima. This paper is gorgeous!!! I am so glad I was able to share these with you! 
Up next is  my amazing friend JANET
