Taylored Expressions Lighthouse

Hi everyone!

It's Joanne's turn to host the challenge at The Paper Players, and she chose "You light up my life."

 It just so happens that the Split Rock Lighthouse here in MN is celebrating it's 106th anniversary this week. Every year they light the beacon:

This is one of our favorite spots when we visit the north shore every summer. I can't tell you how many pictures we have taken of it from just about every angle we could get. I WISH this was one we had beautiful!

This reminded me of Taylored Expressions tiny lighthouse, so I decided to make a nautical scene for the challenge. I used Memory Box breezy waves and shorty boats, with a sun from Lil Inker. The sentiment is also from Taylored Expression.... Little Bits of Summer.
