What can you see at the beach?

A day at the beach makes me think of sunshine, sand, waves crashing on shore and things you can't see under those same waves :)

We are big fans of Jekyll Island GA and the beach there is all of the above but there are also turtles. They lay their eggs on the beach and at the right time the babies work very hard to scoot down to the water from the sandy nest.

This is what came to my mind when I saw the Mark's Finest Papers challenge #271 to make a beach scene.

Spotlight Again

This technique is really fun to do. It draws your eye to the highlighted spot first and then allows you to expand to the entire stamped area. It's really a great way to showcase a stamp!

This card was done to comply with the Outlawz paper-ala-mode-spotlight technique. The cardstock is my handmade paper in medium pink.

Eat Cake!

July is a fun time of birthdays in our family. One grandson is turning 16 this month. I won't tell him but I remember this tiny baby sleeping away in a bassinet in my home office while mom was working. He's grown to be a super kid. Can't wait to see what God has in store for him.

It appears that July is also the month to celebrate chocolate. So Outlawz has a Challenge for Fridays that is all about hand coloring your image and this week the twist is something chocolate. I had guys in mind for this card. I colored 2 cakes and popped one on top of the other. The cardstock is my handmade brown. You can't see it with the multiple layers :)

Turtle Time

Every year I forget how much energy a 9 year old takes to keep entertained. We just delivered him back to his mom and dad after 10 days.

Outlawz has a Challenge calling for the use of die cuts. On our kayak trip down the Rainbow River, our grandson and I saw a group? (bevy, congregation...?) of turtles in one grassy area. There must have been 15 to 20 all sunning themselves. So, I decided to use my turtle die cuts for this challenge.

The background paper is more of the shaving cream technique with alcohol inks. And the cardstock is my pink homemade paper.

Ahhh, I have forgotten how much energy a 9 year old takes! We picked him up on Monday and have played at something non-stop! But, today we are taking turns and yesterday I worked it so we all took a the same time! Come on, I thought that was a real accomplishment :)

I just spotted the Challenge on Mark's Finest Papers and have just a few hours left to enter so I created this card for it. The call is to mark off stripes and use this as the background. The DT cards are very pretty.
