Fun Friday with Pam

Living in Alberta, Canada, has me dreaming of the beach.
KaiserCraft does beach paper with flair. So many gorgeous papers.
 This is the 'Beach Shack' paper and collectables. See in store HERE
Here is a sample shot of the paper and supplies used for this layout. I have been eager to use the  net stamp. It did not disappoint. It turned out beautifully.
I chose a fairly plain piece of pattern paper from the small paper pack. Fishing Net, dauber emboss and TH distress powder to create the net background.
I wanted just a border of shells, so I picked a line and fussy cut along the shell tops. Then I flipped that sheet over so I could use the beach side for the top of the layout.
Doing this left a slight gap. Not to worry, use the ephemera pack or fussy cut some coral to fill in the spaces.

This is the close-up....Is that a Mermaid or Sea Hag caught in the net?
Neither one of the photos was much good on its own. But trimmed and positioned right, it makes for a fun layout theme.
 Still have to do a bit of journaling and add a title. Love these paper packs.
Thanks Pinterest and pinners for the funnies
