I do Love to be Beside the Seaside!

Hello and welcome to some dreams of  warm summer days - hopefully, they won't be too long in coming, or at least that's what I was thinking when Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs asked if I would like to use his new ' Children at the Seaside' images, which you can see here.
I have made a little mini album following this Stack the Deck tutorial.
My label was printed on the computer and I stamped the frame, then triple embossed with Clear EP.  I did intend to collect some shells from the sea shore, but unfortunately, the weather here has been less than kind for this time of the year, so some little shells were stamped and colours and again embossed with clear.  To tie in with this I also triple embossed the image of the little girl and there was no loss of clarity.

I used manila envelopes for my pages and the papers were a freebie with a magazine last summer.  Lots of little pockets and tags tied with scraps of red and blue ribbons.  One thing I like about a project like this, once the papers are cut, then all the double sided tapes can be put on while watching TV at night!
I am entering this at:
  Cut it Up - Summer Vacation
  Fussy and Fancy - Outdoors
  Rhedd and Rosie - No Flowers or Floral
Well, that's it from me, apart from to wish you a good weekend and hopefully there might be a little bit of sunshine about, and to thank you for all your comments lately, I really do appreciate them, especially as I have been so short of time lately that most of the time I have just managed to keep up with DT commenting and not managed to do any personal blog visiting,

I love Nicecrane images and this is my favorite set at the moment. You've made a beautiful album. I just love the added textures and stamped sea shells you've added to the front cover. So suitable with the image!
