Sketchabilities #93 - Summertime Memories with Want2Scrap

Hello Scrappers! 
Sketchabilities this week is being sponsored by Want2Scrap© and the Design Team was given a chance to play along with one of Karan Garber's fabulous sketches. 

Here is my layout...

...and this is the sketch it was based on!

I used several of my favorite products from Want2Scrap©, starting with Fancy Chipboard Words for the title.  Want2Scrap© has a wide selection of words and phrases to choose from - or you can create your own!
I kept it simple and just applied layer of clear embossing powder.  
Once heated, it creates a nice shiny finish that makes the title pop off the page.

I was very excited when Want2Scrap© recently started to carry charms - I love me some charms!  
Palm Trees - the perfect embellishment for a tag on this beach themed layout, right?

I had fun playing with the Ocean Finds Chipboard Embellishments designed by Joe Rotello.  
The seahorse was inked and heat embossed.  The tiny seashell was coated with gesso, inked & heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I played with some alcohol inks and heat embossed again.
A little more alcohol ink and I was happy with the result!
 Of course, no Want2Scrap layout is complete without a little bling!
This is my favorite flourish, Swirls Finesse, and it comes in a variety of colors in rhinestones and pearls.
