"By the Sea" layout

Oh but I have been having way to much fun this week!!  First I made my first every mini album and now I have complete a complimentary layout to accompany it.  I think I have a new love of the shadow box concept.  This was my girl's first trip to the beach.  Frauke, my oldest daughter was so proud to have made a sand castle.  Katie, the youngest, came by and and ruined it.  Frauke was soooo upset!  Sisters!!

 I created this with Graphic 45's "By the Sea" collection.  Totally awesome!!
 A few close ups.

 I made this compass out of two pieces of Creative Embellishment chipboard.  I painted it this incredible blue from Shimmerz.
 Bathing beauties.  This section is just one layer of goodness on top of the other.  The side card can be pulled out for a journal entry.
 In my mini album I created windows with valances so I created a window in this layout too.
