Gotta Love The Oregon Coast

If you have ever been to the Oregon Coast, changes are you have been to Cannon Beach. Cannon Beach is host to Haystack Rock. Haystack Rock is host to wonderful marine gardens, aka tidepools. I remember coming here as a kid and playing in those tidepools (only the sandy ones, not the rocky ones with all the sealife). They have someone out there all the time now, so you can't go and see all the wonderful sealife anymore. I was a little disappointed, but I understand. Not everyone is responsible enough to be trusted. The Oregon Coast is usually cloudy, but mild weather-there is no such thing as a bad day at the coast (except for the occasional flooding and hurricane force winds in the winter). It may have been raining, it may have been windy, but it was a wonderful day-and hey, I can use all the help I can get while walking on the sand, wet sand is much easier to walk on. This trip was taken July 2007.

For the layout, I used Bazzill cardstock, 7 Gypsies printed paper, rubons are Imaginisce, chipboard arrow is Bazzill (covered in pp), stamp is Autumn Leaves, traced in Stickles, letters are American Crafts Thickers, rhinestons are Target $ Spot, sea shells are just that, sea shells. The border was made using this tutorial on Memory Makers.
.
This layout was done for a mini-challenge over at Use Your Stash. The assignment was simple, use blue and green, flocking or glitter (I had neither, so hopefully Stickles will count), and 2 photos.
