A Beachy Display

I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I opened up my new
 Front Porch Kit: Just Add Water
and saw all the pretty coastal colors! 
I knew instantly I wanted to make stuff to add
 to my beachy display on the buffet in our entryway.

One of my favorite projects was the Maya Road chip board album.

I started the project by adding more holes to the bottom of the chipboard...
 this was I would tie it with twine nice and
 tight so it would be able to stand according style.
 After a quick coat of paint I designed each page individually.
 I had so many fantastic pictures for a very resent beach trip...
 the hardest part was picking the pictures!
 I really liked working with the sand paper. 
 It adds such a fun texture. 
The little crushed shells also added so much to the pages. 
 I used a puddle of diamond glaze to adhere it.

The kit had so many fun little things to use as embellishments...
 the clustering was a snap!!

And then I found this lovely turquoise cake plate that made the perfect display at a local store for just $11... yay me!!  And yay you, because we still have a few Just Add Water Kits left! So if you have not bought yours yet... head over HERE and get one and is you are still thinking about it... check out the list of Front Porch Girl blogs in my side bar.  This girls have made the most beautiful things with their kit- you will be truly inspired!!
