Oh, my goodness! Your instructions were so helpful. And, as a real beach lover myself, I'm so loving your beach card.


Um, did you say this wasn't your normal style? Wowzers. It's fantastic. I love both cards! If only I could find some Crafty Secrets items...there's a dearth where I live in Vancouver BC; no one carries these items!!!! Wah!!!!


Broni, Both of your cards turned out fantastic! I love how you layered the beach couple and all your little tips. Then your card with the little girl is so adorable and perfectly shabby!
PS - for some reason typepad will not let me sign in with google, so I'm trying this way.

Thanks for playing so great with our stuff!

Hi Broni! Your cards are absolutely lovely!!

Shannon Sawyer

I think for someone who says this isn't exactly your style, you did an amazing job. It's clear that you are a talented artist, because when we do things extremely well like you've done here on a project that is out of your comfort zone, that just shows what a wonderful artist you are. Thanks for some new ideas I got here at your blog.

Laurie U

Oh those flowers are to die for! TFS

I love the Shabby chic look, it all looks so effortless but there is some work to get it right. Thanks for all the tips!


The Sweet Pea card is toooo cute and especially "special" with the lace being your grandma's. Love it

Like how you make the background shadow and cut the image put over with, that makes the image more dimensional. The beach card is great. I love the crochet flowers too.


Beautiful! I'd never guess this isn't your 'style'!

Becky Green
