I had summer bear.  So I decided to make a shadow box of our favorite summer weekend destination, Leelanau Pennisula in Michigan  We started going there for Labor Day weekend about two years ago, and it was so beautiful that we have made it an annual summer weekend vacation.  Last year, we finally ventured to Sleeping Bear Dunes, and well what better than Summer Bear to be on a theme about Sleeping Bear Dunes.  I had actually done a 2 page layout and we were suppose to think outside the box to create projects other than layouts and cards.  But I forgot and put together this layout.

I used my cricut to cut out the title, a bottle of wine(his favorite-Lenlanau Cellars Great Lakes Red) for Bart Beach Bear(He is one fussy and thirsty bear) and a beach bag with towels and suntan lotion plus to hold any deals she may find in nearby shops in the town for Lola Beach Bear as well as the Hawaiian Flowers.   I had some wave paper that I cut and tore two different brown papers to simulate sand.  My bears were hand cut, and I improvised and made Bart Beach Bear a tank tshirt.  Of course I used brown and black stickles on the edges of my bears.  Glaze black pen for their claws, crystal lacquer on their sunglasses lenses.  Then I outlined their clothes with Martha Stewart's glitter pens.  I added a couple of flowers to Lola Beach Bear.  Also I cut the Sunglasses out for each from glitter or shiny paper.   My Mats are Brown, Blue and Pink Handmade Paper. Since I was suppose to think out of the box and I didn't, BAD ME!!!(Actually it is a sign of my old age and brain forgetting.....) I tried to think how I could still do something but keep the layout.(And those Beach Bears just wouldn't leave the beach and it cost me another bottle of wine for Bart Beach Babe.  So I went with shadow Box, I only had one shadow box so I put Lola Beach Bear page in the shadow box and will be getting one for Bart Beach Bear's page.   This is going to be a gift for my husband . 

Well, Bart, Lola and I would like to thank you for dropping in and recommend you pop over to Lisa.   (Hurry before Bart starts singing "Tiny Bubbles")
