By The Beach

Hello............Its time to show you what I have created for "Stuck on U Sketches" Die cut challenge.
The theme is "Sea".......anything to do with the sea - fish, boats etc.

I really like this current sketch designed by Sandi Clarkson at "Stuck on U Sketches"........I based my layout on it. what I decided to go with. I cut 2 Sandcastles at different sizes from Cricut Every Day Paper Dolls, layering them one on top of the other with foam tape.

I love this photo of my two gorgeous girls!!  It was taken a few weekends ago whilst we were visiting family on the Sunshine Coast.
I usually choose paper to match my photos..........but with this layout I knew I wanted to use this background paper from Kaiser Tropicana collection. So, I messed around with the photo a little adding some different effects .......I had lots of fun doing this:))) and now it goes!!

Be sure have a look at the other SOUS girls fabulous will get some great ideas! 
Can't wait to see what you create!

I'm linking my layout up at Craftin Desert Diva's , they are having a linky Party.......add buttons to your project.

Happy Creating..........Enjoy your weekend
