'Summer Fun'

Hi everyone, hope the sun is still shining for you all. I 've not blogged so much this week as I've not felt great and the crafting has taken a back seat. I have managed my DT cards so as today is Friday it's a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts It's the turn of our lovely Lisa to host and her chosen theme is
 
'Summer Fun'
 
 Well, sort of dithered with this one cos I didn't know if I had anything to fit the bill. But looking in my stamps found this Magnolia background stamp that I had forgotten about and one of my older Tilda's and voila!! then added a few summery details and I kinda like the finished result.
I'd seen someone use the Frantage embossing powder as sand so added some and it really does the trick.

I remember a holiday when I was little doing just this, playing in the sand all day and gathering seashells, watching the sea disappear out of sight and the sun going down.
Oh to be young again and back on that beach with my mum!!

Only have a couple of pics cos naughty me didn't finish the inside in time so will add it later.
