Lawn Fawnatics #29 ~ Life is good!

Seas the day!

Indeed, life is good :)


One of my favorite places to be is practically right outside our door ~ the beach!
Lounge chair, umbrella, a good book  ...... 
well, kinda sorta :)
  I DO bring books to the beach
but to be honest, 
I get lost staring out into the beautiful blue sea, 
tilting my head back and
breathing in the salty air,
 and feeling the sand in my toes ♥
Next thing I know, 2 hours have gone by and I'm still 
on the same page, same chapter, same sentences :/ 

I LOVE the Lawn Fawn Challenge #29 mood board!
I knew right away I'd have to ink up LIfe is Good and play along ♥
I'm blessed to own this stamp and die set
and I wanted to make a beach scene inspired by the top middle photo 

How I made this card:  I started with a palette of distress oxide inks
 onto white cardstock and then ran that through a scallop die with the Cuttlebug.
After gluing that down, I stamped/die cut/colored each of the images
and popped those up with 3d foam.
Finally, the sentiment - stamped right onto the cardstock.
 This card truly makes me smile ~
and I hope in a few days that will be my for real view.
4 more days of school and then it's summer! 
I'll enter this into the Lawn Fawnatics challenge!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

  11. I too can't wait beach time :D but I have to wait the end of June, when all the documents and reunions will be done! :(
    Love so much how you realized that sweet and relaxing scene, the sponged inks look so sunny and warm! :) Love the cute stamps, that stitched frame and the fabulous sentiment.
    Good luck in the challenge!

  12. I am so lucky, that I live just a 20 minute walk from a beautiful beach. The sand reminds me of the sand at Clearwater. Love your beach scene with the gorgeous palm trees and the cute castle. The background is fabulous. Big hugs and blessings, Carol S.xxxx
