Spring Break has come and gone ...

... but with fun sentiments from The Project Bin
 and incredible brads from Eyelet Outlet
it can stay forever!

Spring Break is over for us :(
My son is back in school, my daughter is back in college,
but the memories of us having a wonderful last few days of 
the wonderful ocean and outdoors will linger ♥

From the beach to canoeing, we enjoyed the gorgeous Florida sun and surf!
This card was created with that in mind
with the polka dot sunshine to the billowy ocean waves
and, of course,
the Eyelet Outlet brads that bring it to life!

The waves were created using different colors of cardstock
and a hillside die and Bella Blvd speckled paper for the sun-inspired backdrop.
I've used Summer Fun from The Project Bin and stamped it right on the paper.
There are sweet little stars that adorn this particular stamp in the set
but I masked them off to use just the wording!

I've also used 3 different sets of brads from Eyelet Outlet:
Sea Shore Brads (underwater)
Palm trees (on the shore) 
Seagulls (in the sky and in the waves with his little legs tucked under the water!)

 Here's the stamp set in its entirety:

And that's my card for today!
I hope you are having some crafty fun today, too!

Before you go,
I'm excited to share the brand new stamp set from TPB:
Denise, creative mind behind The Project Bin, 
has done it again with this absolutely adorable 17 piece stamp set,
complete with this sweet turtle and party hat and so. many. sentiments!
Now THAT'S something to shell-a-brate! ♥
