"Fun in the Sun"

ABC Toys & Crafts
will be Featuring all things
What kind of Celebration would it be without a

I was so excited to have the opportunity to play with the "BEACH DAY" stamp set. Just look at this adorable image!!!
Does she not just scream "paper piecing"? It was all I could do not to try and use everyone of the stamps at once. Not sure you can really see how I stamped the little border of seashells with Versamark ink then stamped over them with the sentiment "Fun in the Sun"?

Because I wanted to use that sentiment, I gave my little girl a little "sunburn" but I also used a yellow felt flower (thank you PAT) and button to resemble the SUN. Cute eeeh?
