Cruisin' to Cozumel with Basically Bare

I love the Basically Bare Art Journals and this 6x9 is perfect for a travel journal.  The paper is high quality watercolor and makes for great journaling and doodling.  It takes inks and watercolors beautifully.  
To see the dividers I created for my travel journal, click HERE
While you are there, take a look at the beautiful creations by my fellow design team members.  I'll be posting a follow up to this journal on July 1 showing some of the pocket pages etc. I created to go between the dividers.

Beach Bums in a Box with Basically Bare

When I took this picture at Sunset Beach with the 3 Grands all sitting in water, I knew I wanted to do something special with it.  I've been making a shadow box each year for my daughter and her husband and this one worked out perfectly, thanks to Basically Bare and Art Anthology products. 

Special thanks to my friend, Denita Wishart, owner of Cheeky Chics Scrapbooking events for the shadow box and to Lynda Kay for the title, "Beach Bums" .  I love the play on words.

For directions on how I created this shadow box and more photos, click HERE.

Thanks for looking.
