Beside the seaside ...

I am absolutely thrilled to be Guest Designer at Less is More this week, thank you so much for inviting me ladies.  The theme for the week is 'Your Perfect Holiday', well my perfect holiday is relaxing by the sea - preferably on a lovely sunny day.


I used my Sue Wilson Flip Flops die to cut three pairs of flip flops from the papers in this month's Julie Loves Creativity Box - they are quite fiddly to put together but I think they are worth it, my inspiration came from a card that I saw on Pinterest a long time ago.


The torn paper is from the Sara Davies Shabby Chic Signature Collection and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, now trading as The Lovely Studio.


To finish my card I added some twine secured with bow.


Thank you for visiting my blog today, make sure you pop over to the Less is More Challenge Blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration, I do hope you will be inspired to play along.

Simply adorable, Pauline. The flip flops are so fun in the different patterns. Great job putting them together, especially since they were fiddly and all. Great design and the perfect sentiment too. Thank you for being our guest designer this week at Less is More. Trina :)
