A Day at the beach....

I LOVE the beach.... the smell of the beach is like no other in the world. I smile just thinking about it! As a family. however, we can no longer go to the beach. My son loves playing in the waves but he has absolutely no concept of danger and had to be rescued by lifeguards on our last beach outing. He was in over his head and was fighting us off because he didn't want to come in. Now.... at 6'5' and 350lbs.... he would be very difficult to pull to safety so ur beach days are sadly behind us.

But, thankfull, I can enjoy the beach through my designs and vicariously through those who share there photos and experiences with me. My next creation is a celebration of that wonderful place known as the beach!

it has 17 papers, 6 flowers, 7 ribbons, 1 folded ricrac, 10 shells, a seahorse, a starfish, a sanddollar , 2 bows, a bunting, 5 frames, 2 grass elements, 2 leaf elements, 2 stitched elements, 2 glass floats, 3 borders, 2 seagulls, a fishnet, 2 flairs, 2 flourishes, a beach chair, a palm tree, a bottle of sand, a crab, a tag, a staple, a pearl circle, a pearl scatter, a pebble scatter, a string, a string wrap, 7 wooden signs, a word plaque,  a sand mask, a sand spray, a sand overlay, a sand castle, a lace scrap , a beach umbrella and three alphas...

a little inspiration from my team
