Lasting Memories Cool to be Cool

This week at Lasting Memories the challenge is "It's Cool to be Cool" or how to cool off.  
Being that I live in a Southern California beach community when it's hot we hit the beach.  

The paper I used for this double page layout is from Canvas Corp.
I received this paper to make a project for another DT I am on and had leftovers after I made a really cool mini.  If you would like to see more Canvas Corp Click here.  
This layout was my next project.  
The thick twine, canvas triangles, words and "BEACH" letters are all Canvas Corp.  
I love the combination of Kraft, white  and light blue.  Very beachy!''
EK Success punch for corners.  Waves cut with Cricut and I added foam with a Pearl Pen.  

Blog Candy for this month 

Starting August 18th through August 31 st  I am going to draw one lucky winner by who leaves a comment and is a follower of my blog for a $10  Gift Card to Michaels.  
I will also draw one lucky new follower for a goody bag.  I just realized I am only 3  followers from reaching 600 followers.

I hope you will enjoy us this week at Lasting Memories  and show us how you  cool off  in Summer. 
Remember your project must be a layout 
  Link your projects by Saturday and Happy Craftin
