The Paper Players beach theme challenge




Hi everyone!

The challenge this week from LeAnne at The Paper Players is:



When I think of the beach...it's sitting in the sand relaxing. I found the perfect stamp at Michael's in the dollar bin that says, "Hurry up and relax." And it IS hurry up! Up north anyway..school starts soon, and with that the weather starts to get cooler. Gotta use up the few beach days left around here!
 I added some summertime dies from Impression Obsession...the flip flops and beach chair. The umbrella is from Memory Box, and the sun from Lil Inker.



But wait...that's not all the dies I used! The background is from MFT's Blueprint #20 and the circle from Lil inker.


Have a great day, and be sure to come join us at The Paper Players!
