Life is Better at the Beach

Hi Crafty Friends,
I was inspired by Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #226 Summer Theme. I used Newton's Nook Summer Moments Stamp Set and Frameworks Dies. I CASEd Zsofia Molnar's Design. I just love the way she blended the clouds into the water and framed hers.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What do you like to do at the beach?
A: Me? Play in the water
