Have a Beachin' Day!

Hi Everyone!  Summer is in full swing (well, at least here in Florida) and if you haven't been to the beach yet...then what are you waiting for?!  Grab your bathing suit, snorkel, surf board, and go have yourself a beachin' day!  That's what our Little Surfer Dude (AP-381) decided to do today : p

Other stamps used on this were, Kraftin' Kimmies, "Have a Beachin' Day" Sentiment, Third Coast's Soaring Gull (CK-089) and the Sun (CH-874)  Now the sun I had to alter a bit.  The only sun images I had were either too big or two small for this image.  This sun was just right, but the stamp is actually called Solar Nap, and I couldn't have my sun taking a nap on such a beautiful day, so I masked out the middle and added a little glitter to him to give him a little more sparkle.  My beach sand it a cork sheet that I torn and layered in two parts.  The grass is from part of a Jolee's Boutique 3D sticker.  The tiny shells and star fish are real, gathered from various places.  There is a shell store in St. Augustine, FL that I LOVE to shop at.  They have all kinds of goodies there. 

Hope everyone enjoys their summer, now go forth and create!
