Hello Uneek Peeps
Welcome to

I designed a card
depicting relaxation at the beach
I must admit that I have not taken the children to beach yet
I had two additional children 2 years apart
so hence my DH working 2nd shift
it made it difficult for me to do it alone

Now that the youngest one will be 2 in a few weeks
I've made it my duty to take them to
CHICAGO
to wiggle their toes
in the sands of Oak Street Beach
near the Magnificent Mile

They deserve to enjoy earth in it's natural form
acknowledge natural life around them
Bontanical Gardens
Brookfield/Linconl Park Zoo
just sitting the park closing their eyes and
listen to the waves crash
birds chirp
animal sounds
(dont forget the traffic sounds lol)

Many things that I didn't appreciate

Summer Fun
is the place to be


 RELAX AND ENJOY

  sand between your toes
I was inspired by you tube tutorials by
utilitzing the mini iron and crayons to design this background

INGREDIENTS
Unity stamps Sentimental words
Crayons
Textured Arylics
Water colors
Pearl Embellishment-Recollection
Shells - Gift from my dear friend Zoe of Xochitl Zoe Aparicio-Sanchez
Ink - Staz-Ons Tuxedo
Stickles - Diamond

Interested in the sentiment stamp let me know!

I love the soft feel of this card and I hope you and the little ones have great outings but it is so hot and humid out in that part of the country - I sure do not miss that. Here in NM it is just HOT, HOT, HOT
