Summer Vacation Memories

I purchased a plastic shell bathing suit top. (OMG, not to wear!!! I thought it would make a cute mini album.)  I just love how this little shell holds the memories of a great day at the beach with my family.  The clam shell opens like a compact to reveal 16 photos. My Gypsy was used to weld a shape that would fit into the shell.  Most of the cuts are from Life is a Beach and Pack Your Bags.  When the Cricut Circle's Weekly challenge was opened for a scrapbook layout or mini album sharing you summer vacation memories, I knew I had to get started making this project.




Close up of Tide Pool-  I used the Koi Pond Cuttle bug folder to emboss some plastic packing material to add some "foam" stickles. Would you believe my "rocks" are cricut cuts of Tinker Bell's hair?
