In the Good Old Summer Time at the Outlawz Greetings Challenges

Happy summer, crafters! For those in the northern hemisphere, that means sunny days and hot weather. This week at the Outlawz Monday greetings challenge, the theme is Summer Recreation. What do YOU do to keep cool and active?
This week's summer brings Lacy Sunshine to sponsor and inspire us. I colored up this pretty image called Sandy Boo - Collecting Seashells. Using Copics, I extended the beach from which she is gathering her shells. After popping her onto an embossed and inked card face, I embellished with twine and tiny colorful seashells. My sentiment says it all.
Do you play beach volleyball? Swim at the local pool? Play tennis or roller blade? Whatever you choose for recreation, let it inspire you to create something for this week's challenge at the Outlawz Greetings. Don't forget to keep hydrated as you craft! LOL

This is such a sweet card and a beautiful use of our theme tropical. I'm totally digging how you colored in your girl. Thank you for joining us at Cupcake Inspirations. (and to answer your question, to stay cool and active in the summer, I swim lots of laps in the pool)

Your little girl, enjoying the beach, makes me smile! Thank you for sharing your artistry at Cupcake Inspirations! My summer "keep cool" is settling under a shady tree, enjoying a great mystery novel...
