It's a shore thing..

Good morning all.. 
I am running a little late this morning. So it's a quick little post
For this weeks City Crafter Challenge..

The so sweet Cheryl is our host this week and has come
up with a fabulous challenge..  One of my favorite place.. 

It's a shore thing..  All you need to do is create a beach related theme
on your project.. 



I have had my eye on this digi from Isabella's sketchbook.. 
I think it is the cutest.. 



I had the most difficult time coloring her..
I colored her at least 3 times.  And am not crazy about this one..
But you know me, I am my own worst critic.


I am going to try again.  I think I just needed some different colors for 
the background..

To get all the details on this challenge
you can hop on over to CCCB and get all the details..  

Any whoooo I gotta run and pick Myles up..

Thanks sooooo much for all your kind comments..
They really make my day!!  

Hugs, Linda
