Rockpool Fun

Hi - here's another scrapbook page from our holidays last summer. Had great fun taking these pics as Kathryn couldn't stop giggling. We've always loved rock pools since she was a little girl but think this is maybe the smallest crab we have ever found. I was really pleased with the picture which I took on macro. Not much of a photographer but this came out so clear.

I stamped this image using a Paper Artsy stamp and then used a spellbinders die to cut and emboss it. I inked the edges using a VersaMagic chalk ink. I've been digging out lots of stamps I've had for ages and am bringing them back into use.
I used many different elements in this design including -
Lace
Microbeads
Brads
Shells - cut from a 12x12 paper from paperadventures - "Island Lagoon Patchwork Shells"
Ribbon Snaps - Happy & Laugh from "Mellisa Frances.
I am entering this layout in the following challenges -
