Good Morning,
Hope you are having a beautiful day.  

I found some time to hit the craft table last night.  
It is nice to be able to work in the evenings now that it is light later.
I seem to be more creative when I have some natural light coming into my work space.
This time I combined two 
great challenges for my project.

STAMPlorations CAS challenge


Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 140 Inspiration Piece (image)

This is a cool magazine cover for April.   I love all of the umbrella's.

What inspired me from this cover was not only the umbrella's but it also reminds me of a
 CAS project with all of the open space and being framed with the red border.  

I went away from a rainy them to something more warm.....
The beach.....

Of course I had to go green for the STAMPlorations Challenge.  
I love this simple image.  It is called beach therapy.   

Yes, I believe the beach is very therapeutic. 

I water colored the image and beach using distress inks. 
  I wanted to keep the beech light so that the focus was on the image.  
Now all it needs is a tiny cocktail...LOL

The HB2U sentiment is also from STAMPlorations.  

I hope you like all of the green.

There is still plenty of time to make your own project for these challenges. 

Thank you for dropping in.

Have a wonderful day!
