Gone To The Beach!

Last year when we were in Hawaii we came across this store with full life size bears. I couldn't help but want to get our picture taken with them to show the grand kids . I have never seen such large bears, my hubby is 5'7 and I am 5'5 and we are standing up tall and straight. At the time I didn't know I was going to be part of Bear Hugs Design Team and when Karel came out with these files I knew just which picture I was going to work with. I just love the way it turned out and I am already thinking about page two.

The layout itself was super fast to throw together, using paper that I had gotten about eight years ago.
I wanted to tie in the bright colours of the umbrella and came across some more old paper which I had picked up in Hawaii over five years ago but  thought was to busy to use as a background so just added a small amount to tie everything together.The Bears are from Bear Hugs by Art and Scraps Beach Babes
 The Lei is from the Dollar store which I just cut in half and used for both bears.

I am going to enter this layout in the following challenges:
Creative Cutter Room: Summer Fun
Die Cut Diva's: Summer Fun
Getting Cricky with K Andrew: Summer Celebration
Cardz TV: Anything goes
As always my crafty friends thanks for stopping bye and leaving me some love. Have a Great weekend.

Super cute. These bears could actually be a little intimidating to a litle kid since they are so big. Thanks for sharing at Creative Cutter Room this week.

Stay Creative,
