My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge

My gal, Robyn, over at has 2 openings for her design team based on this challenge. We have to use our favorite cartridge and her favorite colors of pink, green and brown. I have several favorite cartridges, but I remember the excitement that I had when I purchased Life's a Beach. I love the summer and have TONS of lake pictures that I can use with this little gem. It has wonderful beach themed images as well as phrases and the cutest "beachy" font! I am submitting a layout for this challenge. Wish me luck!!

Phrase: letters were 1 3/4"
Flower Border: 2"
Frame: brown layer is 8 1/4", pink is 7" (this is my favorite frame from Storybook)
Mermaid: 4 1/2"
Palm Tree: 5 1/4"

My phrase was welded together using my Gypsy. I added some brown lines on each letter to make it look like palm tree bark. The flowers were cut using the border function. I used Dots embossing folder and Cuttlebugged the brown layer of the frame. I embossed the mermaid's tail with Seeing Spots and the leaves of the palm tree with the Victoria folder. I used an Action Wobble under the mermaid to make her have some movement. Pop dots were used under the coconuts on the palm tree and pink frame. Green gems were added to the dots of the "i"s, and the flowers. The mermaid, leaves on the palm tree and flower border were embellished with stickles.

Here is the finished layout! Comments are welcomed.
