Want 2 Scrap and Shabby Tea Room summer fun...vintage charmer

Inspired by the summer fun challenge over the Shabby Tea Room  I made this card using this darling vintage charmer of a bathing beauty from Clearly Vintage for the Want 2 Scrap blog and for the Shabby Tea Room challenge.
Is she not a doll or what?  I *wish* this was me at the beach but I am more the image of sunburned, ball cap wearing, sand in my sandwich, giant sand pit digging mama then glamourous beach blanket beauty...not that there is anything wrong with my reality...except maybe the sand in my sandwich....there is no way that is ever right!  ;)  Anywhoo, I would love it if you would hop over to the Want 2 Scrap blog and check out my post there and "follow" that blog if you don't already.  Currently the Want 2 Scrap folks are scurrying everywhere to be ready for the summer CHA show but there are big things in store to further promote the blog SOON and you will want to be in the know for SURE!

Thanks for hanging out with me today.  Could you pass the sunscreen, please?

Oh, girl! It's WAY too late for sunscreen! Grab the glasses - HOLLYWOOD style, 'cause honey, this card is SMOKIN' with hotness. Coolness. You name it. You are fun, fun, fun, fun IN {or out} the sun! I'll share my shade spot, baseball hat and cover-up and FORGET the sandwich, we'll find something sand-proof, 'cause girl, you are a ROCKSTAR! {You can set trends all OVER the place!} You're just good fun!

Your card is adorable. I love that image.. I had found that image a couple of months ago and have it saved on my computer. It's so cute!

I'll take extra sunscreen my friend!
