Sunshine!

Yum doesn't some warm sunshine sound good? We're getting there...but not there yet, spring will arrive here with lots of snow still on the ground.

But today's color challenge at SCS gave me that longing for the warmth of sunshine and the beach. (Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Kraft and Black). I adore this cute new set coming out April 1st in the Spring Mini...it's called Just Beachy.



I created the feeling of three pairs of little feet playing on the beach by tearing and sponging the Kraft paper to create *sand*, stamping and coloring the flip flops and popping them, the sun and the pail up. The sentiment is rolled from the Lazy Days Wheel and it's also rolled on the Designer Paper.

Here's a closer picture of the dimension:



Thanks for popping over today!
