Yeah. I Used to Look Like That. (I'm Lying.)

When I saw the challenge at Crafty Creations - Just Imagine - I immediately thought of this stamp. If you don't know how they work together, you haven't met Middle Age yet. It and I are old friends. I was behind a cute, young woman in the checkout line at Wally World not too long ago. She had an advertisement for the Beach written across her bum. I can remember when I'd have wanted someone to read my backside. Now I'd need a billboard permit, LOL!

Anyway, here's the project:

This is for the challenges at:
Aud Sentiments - Summertime
Paper Sundaes - Make an easel card
Bellarific Friday - Use this sketch:

The deets:
Stamps - Stamping Bella, Verve (small sentiment), {Ippity} by Unity (large sentiment)
DP - Cosmo Cricket   CS - Michaels
Embossing plate - Cuttlebug (inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink)
Flower and fuzzy brad - Making Memories
Shells - the Beach
Ric Rac - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Chalk (for the stamp background) - Studio G

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you're enjoying your Summertime!
