Life's a beach

How hot? Very apt that our challenge this week at Die Cut Dreams is 'life's a beach'. So let's see your seaside themed projects! The Design Team have come up with some fabulous projects this week to inspire you, here's mine:

I've used one of the new CC designs stamps, I just love the cute rubber ring she's sat in. I've shaded her with Copics and cut her out to sit her on my seaside scene. I tore up a piece of patterned paper and then stamped a bucket with a towel and sunglasses off another CCs stamp and cut it out. The shell came off a scrapbook page I'd made that I wasn't keen on so at least it's been put to good use now! I've had the metal framed sentiments for ages and I'd planned to use them on scrap book layouts, but I just don't get the time to scrap these days. I'm joining in with:
Hope you're enjoying the good weather, I spent the afternoon cowering under a kiddie gazebo with Blake in his stroller and Zac in the paddling pool!
