TESC106 Dandelion and some photos!!!

Howdy friends!!!

We had a fabulous day at the beach yesterday.....oh how I love Tybee Island!!!  The weather was perfect and the ocean was still a little nippy!!! We took a long stroll along the water and found ourselves some awesome sea shells, a sand dollar and my Rebecca found a sharks tooth...how cool is that??? It suppose to be in the upper 80's to low 90's on Friday I might have to take the girls again...can't think of a better place to be then at the beach during spring break :) !!!

Oh and if you want to see more of Tybee go and watch the new Miley Cyrus movie *The Last Song* it was filmed on Tybee Island!!!

Couldn't help myself to show off some fun pictures we took :) .....






Some college kids made this awesome sand castle...it was a piece of *Art*!!! They really did a tremendous job with it!!! They added so much details... I couldn't even capture it one photo, but thought I'd show you the overall idea!!!



Hope you liked the photos too???

I also have a card for you......this was my idea for the TESC106 Sketch.



I used the beautiful Dandy Days Set from Our Craft Lounge. The silhouette images were inked in Memento Black and I colored the inside with a Yellow Tombow Marker.

The CS I used is Riding Hood Red and the DP is from the Riding Hood Red Pattern Design Collection. The butterflies were punched out with a MS Punch and I added some Silver Pearls. I finished the card off with a Black Checker Ribbon......voila!!!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by today!!! See you again tomorrow with my last Stamper's Dream creation.....my Guest Design gig is coming to an end :( !!!

Just saw the movie last night (opening day). I thought it was going to be really lame at first ... but there really was more to the story than I was expecting! I did enjoy it ... and even shed a few tears. Lovely to see your happy family snaps, Silke! Treasure these times ... they grow up far too quickly!!! Did you hear my "sigh" when I saw your card. I am so envious of your design talent. Always so classically elegant ... and always ... so gorgeously inspirational. Hugs, Andrea xxx
