OTWC #57

Hello!!!  With all this continued HEAT here in Kansas, I am sooo longing for the beach!  Just whisk me away to where there are glorious blue waters, cool breezes, and sand.  Ahhh....doesn't that sound great??
Today's post is just that.......BEACHES.  Come join Off The Wall Craftiness for this week's challenge.  Just look at this inspiration photo.  This week there are no particular colors just BEACH!  Let's see what I came up with.



I went a little more bright than my usual but I really like how it turned out.  Combining some color blocking with these cute little stamps from Wilson Designs stamp set:  Teeny Bikini



This challenge is sponsored by MDsparks........OH MY!  You will love the eye candy over there!  The winner of this challenge will receive $15 credit to the store!  Sweet!
Have fun with this challenge......It should be fun to see the entries for this one!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

****NOTE:  My son's baseball team won it's first game in the World Series!  Yippee!  I won't be around this weekend on the old blog but I'll be sure to post on FB the progress of the team!!!

Hi Amy! It was so good of you to pop by my blog last week. :) I'm not normally a fan of brights, but I like what you did with this beachy set and of course it *should* be in brights! Love the strips of paper stacked up.
