Treehouse #52 - Beach Vacation

It's time for another challenge at The Treehouse and this week it's brought to you by Kelly.
She challenges the team, and you, to come up with a creation based on a "Beach Vacation" theme.

A great challenge for the start of Summer and I found a few others that worked with it too:

Fussy and Fancy - Recipe, 3 Images (one can be a sentiment), 3 papers and 3 embellishments
Taylored Expressions - Sketch
Auds Sentiments - It's Your Day
Stamptacular Sunday - Life's A Beach
Creative Inspirations - Beach theme
The Pink Elephant - Gotta Wear Shades (bright fun colors)
Diedrich Dare - Photo Inspiration
Everybody Art - Summer
Stamp With Sarah Kay - Summer
Kah Wink E Dink - 6 of one (I used 6 buttons)
Tuesday Throwdown - Trees or Nature

Card Recipe:
Image - Fun in The Sun by Treehouse Digitals
Paper - K&Co Citronella
Medium - Copic Markers
Border punch - Martha Stewart
Buttons - Unknown

All 3 images came from the same digital set and it's a great value with 8 images and 11 sentiments for just $5!
So grab your markers and paper (or should that be bucket and spade or shovel and pail (covering both sides of the Atlantic today)) and get in the Summer mood and show us your bright and sunny projects!
Remember to drop back and link them at The Treehouse and Good Luck!
