This is an older photo of our daughter, Maria, playing with a friend in the sand at Tybee Beach, Georgia. I enjoy the contrast of grunge and bling as you can see in this summertime layout using 100 Days of Summer paper and stickers by Simple Stories.
Be sure to stop by Shannon's blog to see what her talented design team put together for this sketch.
The Simple Stories paper and stickers along with Petaloo flowers really made this page come together rather quickly for me. Other than distressing, I cut the two pieces of loosely woven burlap and dabbed some random spots of gesso to place behind the photo and journal blocks. I found the burlap at Michael's in the floral department as a burlap garland, so it's only about 8 or 10 inches wide ~ perfect for cutting up for my scrapbook pages.
This photo reminds me of one of my favorited Bible verses which I penned along the flourishes printed along the bottom of the page. "Psalm 139: 17-18 ~ How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand."
