Ah, The Beach


Now tell me.....wouldn't it be nice to be at the beach right now? Maybe, and then again, maybe not. I keep thinking maybe I've outgrown the beach! I mean, all that sand sticking to you, salty tasting lips, feeling like you need a shower every five minutes, sunburn, etc..... Anyway, this little lady looks like she's ready and is loving the beach - hence the sentiment Life's A Beach! I guess you can look at the sentiment another way, but I like to think of it as being happy. Anyway, I WILL tell you this - This is NOT a photograph of me!!!! At least not yet!!

The image is from Art Impression and everything about it screams "fun"! I had the entire card completed, photographed, and ready to post and just kept thinking it needed something. So I stamped it again, cut out the rubber ducky inner tube, colored it, and then popped it up on the image. Now it actually looks like she's in the inner tube! And what kind of little lady would be seen at the beach without her rhinestone earrings!! The layout is for a challenge from Alissa over at StarryNightsStudio. Check it out - it's a nice layout.

Thanks for stopping by................

Great card, she looks like she ready to have some fun (and get into trouble). Great idea to use the inner tube for dimension.

This is a great layout to show off your image. I like the papers you chose and how colorful it all is.

I am not a big fan of the ocean but I like lake beaches. But I will only go when it's off season. I hate crowds of people.

lol - this is a great image!!! This lady would make me RUN from the beach!!! I love that you decided to pop up the innertube! Gives it such great dimension!
BTW - I prefer the pool - unless the beach is on a wonderful Carribean Island!!!
