The Beach

Happy Thursday Everyone! We returned home after our short holiday and it has been super busy around here. We went to the beach and I do believe that we imported a few tons of sand home with us! LOL! Funny thing about sand. I absolutely adore it on a beach. There is nothing that compares with walking barefoot in the sand with the waves splashing your feet. But, I do not enjoy the sensation of sand on my feet in my home!

The kids had a FABULOUS time and so did my hubby and I. Their joy is infectious and so is their energy and so I think that this is where the inspiration came for my card today.

Here is a simple card that I made using the Whiff of Joy’s Fun in the Sun kit:

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 125

This paper from Webster’s pages Seaside Retreat was perfect. You can’t get more simple than this. One piece of DP adhered to a card-base. Can you see what I added? There is Oakley and the sandcastle but the little crab in the bottom left is also from the kit! I love all the sentiments that are already printed on my paper but I couldn’t help adding one more from the kit: “Splish Splash”. It is right beside Oakley’s head and it filled in that empty space perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with my card for Friday Sketchers Challenge!

Lovely unusual idea & it works so well with all the busyness of the design. Love the " postage stamp" edging too.
