Beach Bum

A few weeks ago we went to Sand Hollow with some friends to have a picnic and enjoy the nice sun shiny day.  As it has been a very cold and wet winter seeing the sun and being at the lake was something we all needed.  My boys thought that is was the best thing in the world. We had a hard time getting Kenny out of the water and even Nathan just wanted to sit in the water and splash all day.  At least until he got tired and fell asleep. I can't wait to get the photo's on it :)

The sun: 7.75" from the Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge. I Cut it once regular and then hid the inside cut out and cut it again for the orange background.

Little Boy 2: 3.5" Using the Everyday Paper Dolls
Beach Bum: 4.25" Using Life is a Beach. I used a metallic silver pen to outline the shorts and the words.

I have two 4.25 x 6.25 Squares and one 5.25 x 7.25 Square for the photos.
