 Hello everyone,

Another fortnight has come around and time for a new challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT

and I'm your hostess with the theme "TO BEACH OR NOT TO BEACH " what is your favourite holiday place and don't forget to tell us why..

Mine is the beach, the only thing I hate is when it is windy and you get sand in your sandwiches and the grit on your teeth is so yucky, and when Mum was alive she had to have everything spread out like a picnic and everything got gritty..

My project started with lots of die cutting [surprise surprise]

and Barry, he quite often comes out at the beach,
 and he needed to stand in the water..

but, on a rock as that crab was after his brown hairy toes..
My rock was of course an upside down screwed up cloud die in gray card stock..

The sentiment printed out in word was a quote that was on our telly when my kids were young..
"Have fun in the water
but do what you outta"..

A safety tip about swimming with a crowd and such..

and there he is, all done.

Waeare sponsored by Dies to die for..

and would love to see you over HERE
and join us..

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll see you tomorrow..

Another beautiful card, love the colours, too. A neighbour here has brown, hairy toes, too, and he's not a bear! Hugs, Valerie

I am so confused about this card Chrissy, I would swear I saw it the other day and even commented about it....its all so weird but honestly I have seen it before !!!!
Anyways, its brilliant, I am such a fan of Barry as you know and his antics are always amusing, he is one very active bear isn't he... I love the beach too, so its a win win for me..
BTW, my mum did the same thing for us, everything was laid out and we ate a sometimes very gritty lunch, haha, she would just say, don't worry it will brush off !!!!!! happy days.xx
