Life's a Beach


When I saw this weeks challenge on Less is More Life's a Beach I knew I would be able to use my Taylor Expression Sandcastle die but first I had to make a beach for it.
The sand is in fact sand paper although it wasn't keen on the Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp.
The papers are a bit of Doodlebug and American Crafts and I had use the Stitched die on all of them to them cut them to make the scene and matching frame.
My little sun was a perfect size from the My Sunshine stamps and die again from Simon Says Stamps.
I cut the sandcastle in red and cut the flags off to stick on my sand castle. The sentiment is again from Simon they're on my desk so in easy reach but the set is call Happy and Smile.
I hope it clean enough for the LIM team.

Your little scene is perfect, and that dimensional frame is perfect. It would not have occurred to me to make the frame a part of the scene. You are SO clever!
