My first project today is a Life's a Beach Layout.  Again, I used the Beach Baby paper from Fancy Pants as well as the Cartridges, Life's a Beach, Luau and Simply Charmed, Coordinations Cardstock and Stickles.  I inked around each item with Cateye chalks. 

          My second project is a Hula Girl Card.  The green leaf and blue sponge paper is from Hobby Lobby..  I inked everything with Cat eye chalk.  I used Luau, Life's a Beach and Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridges. I put some rhinestones on the lei, and used the black glaze pen on her facial features.       

 My third and final project is a Luau Card..  I used green sponge and bubble paper from Hobby Lobby.  Cutouts from Life's a Beach and Luau.  Inked everything with Cat eye, and stickles.

I love the card. I have the hardest time layering the background and making it look nice. I should have you teach me how since you did a terrific job. I've really enjoyed celebrating your birthday and hopping along with you. Lorby at http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com/
