Toes in the Ocean
This is my second layout featuring the August Kit from Snobby Walrus Paper Crafts. There are lots of embellishments in this kit, and the Prima charm is so pretty you might find the young girls in your life trying to 'borrow' it for a necklace!
There are two packages of Prima flowers in the kit, and they are both gorgeous. The paper ones have 6 different coordinating colours in the pack, but since I can never leave well enough alone (ha!), I sprayed two of them with glimmer mist to slightly change the shade. The blue one is now "Dragonfly" and the pink one is now "Starfish". Don't those colour names just scream summer?
With the journaling tag, I adhered a couple of images I fussy cut from the Webster's Pages paper, and doodled with Smooch pearl ink (included in the kit). The colour on the Smooch is amazing, but as tempting as it may be - it just doesn't work as nail polish (Don't ask).
