Left My Heart At The Beach

It is a bright sunny day here in Sasktoon, which takes me back to childhood days spent at the beach in Bournemouth UK - my hometown and where I met my husband.  He is a Cancerian, a water sign, much more longing to be back at the beach near the sea than me a Libran air sign who is happy in many places!
So with Father's Day and his birthday very close and KennyK having the very appropriate 'Bathing Beauty' as their newsletter freebie this month, I thought I would make a frame to go up in his new office. 
I have used the following materials to create my frame:

  • Card, frame, sandpaper and brads from my stash
  • Enamel dots and palm tree die from Echo Park
  • Gold Sharpie
  • Promarkers - Oatmeal, Soft Peach, Dusky Pink, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Raw Sienna, Sky Blue, Arctic Blue, Peach, Mango, Col Aqua, Duck Egg & Turquoise
