Life's a Beach...

I love the fact that August is already half over and
I still have a Summer beach trip to go on in September!
It stays so warm here in Phoenix,
that we often think that the rest of the
country is 85 degrees in late summer, too!
Florida should be just about perfect around mid-September!
Here is my Summer Fun card!
The cork paper makes an ideal "sandy" background for the tiny seashells.
This card is entered in the challenges at:
Ribbon Carousel, "Summertime Fun" and use ribbon, twine, etc.
(I used brown jute/twine)
 Crafter's CafĂ© (Beach)
My striped paper and the cool cork is DCWV!
The little shirt is from Jolee's, and had in my stash for years!

August Card Sketch
Here's my fun little project!
I have several friends expecting new babies in their families, and without knowing if some are boys or girls, this will be a great addition to any gift.
These little critters from the "Kidlet" stack are adorable! 
Can't get better than a sock monkey!
If you have a few spare minutes, all you need is DCWV paper (new or old) and some imagination!

PS...They have a terrific layout sketch challenge every month, too!
