That Day at the Beach

While at Archiver's last weekend, I said that i wasn't going to buy anything...but then I saw the So Sophie papers on display and fell in love.  I bought some because I want to use the in some upcoming classes at me LSS. 
So when I got home I went to the My Minds Eye blog to get some inspiration I saw that there was a sketch challenge going on and had the perfect photo for these papers!

My favorite paper is the yellowish/sandy color lined paper, and it reminded me of sand, so I used it for my background.  And the blue swirl paper was perfect to simulate waves and a breeze!

I did a lot of hand stitching and some stamping.  These flouishes reminded me of birds so I misted them and crackled them.

The large blue flourish on the bottom and added some sand and some tiny shells that we had picked up at the beach that day!  :)

The theme for the challenge is "I remember" and there were so many details about our first trip to the beach that I wanted to remember...
