Life's a Beach

  Don't you wish you were on a beach somewhere? Or, maybe you are! This was fun to make. The lovely lady is a freebie from Fripperie and Butterflies. It was a black and white photo, but I put the image through Pixir, Retro Vintage Editing  and gave it the funky colour and the grungy black frame.
  All papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found - Madison Avenue and Lost & Found - Portobello Road 6x6 pad sets.
  All the shells and the small piece of clear beach glass are from the beaches of Nova Scotia! I have jars of shells and some beach glass that I have collected over the years.
  The gorgeous off white rosette with tulle lace is from a local paper craft store, The Cutting Garden 
  I turned one of the shells over and glued a "pearl" in it. The shell on the right is a sand dollar. The starfish seen here and the other one by her foot are rub-ons. Words are from computer.
  Inside sentiment: "... when you're Retired!" Congratulations and let the relaxation begin! (Stampin' Up! stamps)
