Beachin' it...



I'm fortunate to be the Guest DT this week at Die Cut Dreams, wow 2 weeks in a row! The theme this week is Life's a beach. I used a Prairie Fairy image for mine. Coloured with pencils/baby oil. The shells are from a necklace from Hawaii!
I am entering these challenges.... Delightful sketches - summer, Charisma - boys, Sew Many Challenges - open, Crafty Catz - digital. Don't forget to pop back from the Whimsy New Release Blog Hop on July 1st.
