Say What? (June 15 Challenge)

I've been in a beach-minded mood this month (preparing for a vacation in Florida this summer), so that's what inspired this page--the colors anyway. I don't have a stamp set that I thought really fit with the photos I intend to put on the page, but "Life's a Breeze" is going on my next order. I thought about making it a Father's Day theme with Loads of Love, but decided against that idea. TITLE ADDED DIGITALLY in Photoshop. Font is 'Bud Easy'. I also didn't have any SU DSP that fit with my color scheme, so I made my own (WW paper, markers, and an acrylic grid). Probably will fade over time, I know.

Ingredients: Sahara Sand base, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, and Kraft cardstock, SU Markers, 1" Circle punch, 1¼" Circle Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Small Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Five-Petal Flower Punch, brads, circle scissor, Celery and retired Bluebird quarter-inch grosgrain ribbon.
Techniques: Faux chipboard, DIY designer paper

Loopy Flower

Chunky 'Button'

Blurry (sorry!) corner detail

Proof (kinda) that I striped the paper myself. If you look closely, you can see the green smudges.

Last, but not least, is the sketch I did for this challenge!

Thanks for looking!

I love all your layouts! I like the nice mix of big/small circles on this one.
