Beach Bum

This is my very 1st time entering a challenge over at Paper Secrets and I was so intrigued by the requirements that I went all the way with the idea. Instead of using different patterned paper, I used 95% material, cork board and some embellishments. The photos are my newest sweet Grandson  showing off his new bathing suit and cover up while taking a break on the beach chair.
The various fabric swatches which I had to pink with my pinking shears, all came from sample Decorator books that I was given. This was NOT easy since there were pieces of fabric lint everywhere!!! You can probably still see them!!
The word BUM is also printed with a denim fabric.
