Beach Boys Mini and GLEE!

I received this totally fun tabbed acrylic mini album from Want2Scrap and knew immediately I wanted to make a beach mini book. I actually turned the album so that the tabs would look like the ocean's surf and waves...it had been a while since I worked on an acrylic mini and I must say it was a ton of fun!

Here is a little close up... after cutting out the wave I rubbed crystal lacquer all over it and then sprinkled just a bit of white glitter on it.

I used Bella Blvd's All Inclusive line for this mini and the blue gems from Want2Scrap work perfectly with it. I just LOVE this paper line...perfect for the summer and beach fun!

My kids favorite part of the beach is playing in the sand and boogie boarding...I made sure I included photos of each in my mini.

I love that we get to play in the surf right next too the dolphins and seagulls. I also added pictures of them in my mini.

Water play is a must and my little nephew Jake LOVED it this year...here he is getting a little help from his dad and Jack on the boogie board. The other picture is Nick getting slammed by a big wave...such fun. Thanks for letting me share!

If you didn't see it last night it was the tribute to Madonna! As a child of the 80's and of course a Madonna fan I was hooked.

This video has me dancing around the house!



Thanks so much for stopping by! I be back in a few days to share some fun Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker projects!
