 And the official challenge:

I did a little SNUBAing on a recent vacation and OH. MY. HEAVENS.  I loved being UNDER the ocean SO. MUCH!!!  I have always loved snorkeling, but this was so much better!  I was in love!   Here's a little pic of me down there... I kinda took the card this week to the ocean part of the beach...and it was so much fun!  Here are a few more pics of some details...

These waves are from the scallop die in the "Seasonal Layers" thinlits.  HOW MUCH FUN IS THAT?! :-)

Love that embossing!  I just embossed the netting in Whisper White onto Watercolor paper.  And then I just did a quick color wash over it with Coastal Cabana ink and an Aqua Painter.  😍 I HATE how an octopus looks in real life.  Nasty.  Haha.  BUT I LOVE this little guy in stamping form!  Funny how that works.

I hope you enjoy these projects!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Now go check out the TGIF Challenge Blog and play along!  I want to see ALLLLLL the beach inspired projects!!!!  💕

Let me know if you have any questions!  And don't forget about the FABULOUS Anniversary special I have going this week!!!
