Ready for the Beach!

Hi Crafty Friends,
It is SNOWING in Chicago right now! We just got 2 inches! It's April 14th... how ridiculous! So I am dreaming of the beach! I made this card to play along with My Favorite Things Color and Sketch Challenges this week.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite beach?
A: Me? Pentwater, Michigan. We spent my childhood going there for two weeks every summer. See picture below.

 This is my sister and I in Pentwater in our matching polka dot bikinis!
