I made this scene as a section of an altered board book that I've been chipping away at. The backgrounds are all done with Dina Wakley's acrylic paints (LOVE THEM), and on this page, I also used a fabulous Paper Artsy stamp set for those wonderful wonky flowers/trees. A circle loop die from Simon gives some visual oomph and the Sunshine sentiment is also from Simon.
For the background elements on both pages, I used the Crosshatch die from Tim Holtz. I also made the scalloped banner using a new stamp from Carabelle Studio that is quite fantastic called, "Frise Nuage." Head's up on that stamp-- be sure to check the dimensions! With my constant habits of avoiding math, I didn't read the size very closely and it is a BIG stamp (almost 11 inches long). Lots of bang for your buck. I only used the very bottom tips of the scallops on my banner. The beach house is also from the JOFY line of Paper Artsy and the Washi is from Doodlebug. I added some numbers using Tim Holtz's Ruler Ribbon, which I love.
Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
