Beach Ballin'

First and foremost, I want to say that I am a proud member of the DESIGN TEAM over at Child's Play Challenges!!! *throws confetti and blows party horn* :D My first ever design team might I add! I am super excited and looking forward to some fun over the next 6 months! Well, my first assignment as a new design team member (never gets old saying that! :) ) was to use the inspiration: beach ball. I took this challenge quite literally and made my entire layout a beach ball. I hardly ever use the different 12X12 shapes as my background page because I find them really difficult to use. I like the boring ole square 12X12 pages! But, I  decided I was going to think outside of the box (err...ball?) on this one and just go for something outside of my comfort zone. I cut the beach ball parts(and the white background circle) with my Cameo since it will cut 12X12 size (squeal!).

Inspiration: Beach Ball

This page went together a lot better than I envisioned. Once I had the main pieces down, I just started embellishing away! I used Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss collection on this one

I pop dotted the photo to make sure it was the focus of the page. Also because I just love pop dotting everything. I also love chipboard embellishments! I mean L-O-V-E kinda love. :)
