Fusion: Sand, Beach....and Sunshine!
Those summery beach signs were my inspiration for my card today. We are a long way from the nearest ocean but luckily "our" lake is nearby! We search for flat rocks to skip instead of seashells and float on big old tractor inner tubes instead of surfboards. OK so no fresh seafood but wood grilled pizza and barbecued ribs taste good too! Our sandy beach is smaller but there is plenty of lawn for softball, volleyball and rolling tube races. It takes a lot of talent.....and a lot of crazy.....to climb into the hole of the tube and let your friends roll you across the lawn, over the sand and into the lake.
But in the meantime there is something wonderful about being the only person lakeside after the holiday weekend is over......no kids, no dogs, no boats.......just me and my book of the week :)
I took my cue from the beachy photo at Fusion this week. Hope you play along using the sketch, the photo or both!
The fun sketch at Global Design Project this week reminded me of the beach signs so I used it for my card!
