Celebrating!

I officially turned in my first required assignment for school yesterday!  Hooray for me!
To celebrate, I got to play in my craft room for 1 hour today.  This is what I came up with.
Sunset is crummy but otherwise I love it!  LOL.  Wish we would get some sitting on the beach weather.  Really tired of the pouring rain........


See that DP in the background....?  Went all the way to Maui for that.  Maybe if I use it up I will have to go back to get some more!   Sounds like a great idea to me.

Recipe:
Images:  Our Craft Lounge
DP:  Island Inspirations (Maui), Shell DP unknown
Inks:  Memento
Coloring:  Copic markers
Stash:  ribbon, cardstock

Challenges:
Glitter Geeks:  Nautical
Aud Sentiments:  Spring or summer colors
My Mums Craft Shop:  Celebrate something
Paper Pretties:  2 or more DP
Celebrate the Occasion:  Just because and use pink
