Twinkling H20s , Webester's Pages, Helmar and Colvin

I was updating my calendar book today and noticed we are only a hop, skip and a jump away from our two weeks at the beach.  I've owned our time share since 1986 and we have not missed a summer yet.  Last summer was the boys' first time at the beach and they had a blast.  They will be down for at least half a week this coming year and it will be Leighton's first time.  I've been gathering beachy papers for quite some time now in anticipation.  Today, in the midst of cleaning and organizing in my work room, I cam across this pic of Colvin and just had to scrap it. 
 In my "To Dye For" class a couple of weeks ago, we dyed cheese cloth among other things. When I got home, I dyed more but in Twinkling H20s. I love how this piece turned  out so I used it as the waves.  Helmar's Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid to stiffen and shape the dyed cheese cloth. 
The paper is Webster's Pages Palm Beach line.  I used two sheets of the same paper and cut out the umbrellas.  The top ones are coated with Glossy Accents to make them easier to shape and then adhered with Helmar's Liquid Glue dots...my favorite product.  I get most of my supplies from Posh Scraps in Palm Harbor, Fl. as most of you know. 

And, I even got some cleaning and laundry done today.  Can't wait til tomorrow...not only am I getting to scrap with the Wed. Gals at Posh but I am also getting to meet Cheryl Mezzetti, the lead designer for Creative Imaginations who will be teaching an evening class at Posh!  Hope to see you there!
