Happy Thursday everyone!
By lunchtime today my little girl is officially finished with school (we're a little behind the rest of the country here in the north-east)! And I am taking the rest of the week off from work to spend it with her! Yay! We're headed to the local river for a swim since it's going to be a scorcher today! Which is fitting because I have another card to share with you using the sweet Snorkeling Beatrice!
She's a doll isn't she? I love those tiny eyes poking out from behind the goggles! :) I borrowed this month's Sketch For You To Try for my layout, which is why I'm lacking in the layers department! Sometimes simple is good though. Sometimes I need to keep it a little simple! Haha Beatrice is colored in my SU reinkers and Distress Inks for her hair. The ocean background was sponged with SU's retired Cool Caribbean. I used a fun sentiment from the Oh So Beachy set and the shell die to ground the sentiment. The paper is from an old K&Company pad I've had forever now. I love the pop of blue on the orange and pink paper!
Pop on over to the ATS blog for some more inspiration using the Swiss Pixies and Beatrice stamps!
