Lasting Memories Scavenger Hunt Birthday Blog Hop

How FUN was this. had a blog hop with 10 people and at each stop you wrote down their featured "element" they were using in their layout and then when you were finished with your list of 10 elements you make an anything goes layout using 5 of the 10 elements.    So here is my layout.   Once again pics of the grandkids while on vacation in California the last 2 weeks.

I used these 5 elements     Twine,  Washi Tape, Diecut, Stamping and Chipboard.

My twine is 2 pieces down the left edge of layout

Washi Tape - 3 strips of gold w/ stars washi tape horizontally across center of layout under the pictures.

Die-Cut - the sand buck, the sand castle  and the seashell on the title.

Stamping -  I stamped 2 seashells on the file folder at bottom right, which I used for the date of pics.

Chipboard - the 2 pc bathing suit at the right side of the title.

So much fun doing the blog hop and making the layout plus so many of the 10 also had great blog candy they were offering.
