Have you seen the Just Beachy Collection by Simple Stories? I am using it this month and I just love all the bright vibrant colours in it. It is perfect for holiday photos.

I really loved the 12×12 This is Paradise paper and when I saw it planned to fussy cut out the white and raise it against the coloured paper. However having cut it all I turned it over and thought the palm silhouette and stripes looked very striking as the back ground to my layout. I matted my photo from a paper in the 6×8 paper pad. I then cut the large camera also from the 6×8 paper pad. Having distressed the edges I attached it to the right of the photo. I attached a tag from the 12×12 tag sheet and a leaf from the floral bits and pieces. Over the top I added the foam Tropical paradise sticker.

At the top border of the photo I added a punched out tab. I used a sticker from the sticker book and adhered an epoxy cover to it. From the 12×12 Take it Easy I paper fussy cut the cruise ship and added it along with the chipboard palm trees.


To the left I used another tag  and I cut around the flamingo and raised it on sticky fixers, I fussy cut the key ring and attached it to the tag using waxed string. I then made a small cluster using the leaves from the Floral Bits and Pieces and the chipboard cocktail. I added some flowers from the foam stickers.

Finally at the top of the layout I created another cluster using fussy cut elements, chipboard, foam stickers and floral Bits and Pieces.


I’m so pleased with how this layout turned out and its quite different from my original plans! Why not take a look at this gorgeous collection over on the HLM website.

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!
