Acrylic word books (Shop & Play the JLO Way)

I went "shopping" at Scrapbook Your Life! and this is what I picked out. There's an acrylic book that spells "BEACH", the cover is the letters and the pages behind it are all clear acrylic...just covered with brown paper to protect them. A lot of beach related paper and stickers as well.

And this is the cover of my book. I totally love it and took it back to the store today and it got rave reviews. I'll post the rest of it tomorrow night....there are still a few final touches to be done.

When you pick up the top cover, this is the first page. Such a great image of San Diego with sail boats, the roller coaster down on the boardwalk and the sailboats. And who can be here without flips?

When you put the acrylic word cover over it...see the roller coaster showing through? I used alcohol ink and my cut n'dry squares to ink the letters

There's a clothes line clipped on with bathing suits and shirts (all stamped) hanging from it. Swirl stamps on the acrylic, flowers with swarovski crystals and of course, a California license plate!

In the far lower right hand corner, I used a crop-a-dile to punch holes in the acrylic, added jump rings and little charms.

Here's the cover with white paper behind it so you can get a better view of the letters:
