PIO #23 - Use Some Patterned Paper

Pile It On has a new challenge for you.  This is a fun and easy one, "Use Some Patterned Paper".  Now if your craft room looks anything like my craft room you've probably got enough patterned paper to cover Rhode Island, maybe even parts of Connecticut. Our sponsor is the Doodle Garden where you can find lots of totally adorable images and the winner will get to pick three.  So get your papers out and start crafting.  Just remember, we want you to combine at least one other challenge with ours.

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Doodle Garden "Swimmy Sally"
ink - printer; Stampin' Up "Bravo Burgundy" for shells and flower edges
paper - Stampin' Up "Melon Mambo" and "Blushing Bride" card stock; Me and My Bid Ideas "Destination Paradise" pad; 
miscellaneous - copics; EK Success beach border punch; Spellbinder's "Sea Scape" Impressabilities; brads; charm; baker's twine; My Favorite Things "Mini Rolled Rose", "Pierced Rectangle Stax" and "Pretty Posies" die-namics: pearls
