Beside the seaside, beside the sea

This might be my fav layout ever! Not sure why - love the colours, love the photo, love the memories :). Brown and blue is my favourite colour combo and it's in evidence all over my house, including my craft room.

A couple of things I did on this layout:
-I used a rub-on onto contrasting cardstock and cut it out to make the 'seaweed' type embellishment;
-I inked all around the edge of the Kraft cardstock with Walnut Stain and Peeled Paint inks to mimic the colours of the rocks in the photo;
-I added some lengths of twine across the middle, I stuck them to a length of DST and then stuck the tape to the layout;
-The swirl at the top and the border across the middle are both stamps - Fancy Pants and Prima.
Thanks for looking :)
