Sunshine in...

Good morning!

I'm playing along in the current Saturday challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps which is all about the "beach". I'd gotten Sassy Sprite Rayne during a Frugal Friday sale with the intention of altering her from a fairy in the water to a mermaid, cause it made more sense to me since water-logged wings would be a very bad thing. I just love how Rayne's ponytail transitions into a spray of water mimicking the wave she is leaping out of. I found this old sunburst paper in my stash which set the beachy tone that I needed for the challenge. And while I'm at it, I think I'll also enter this into the Krafty Friends Summer Stamping Party. Why not, LOL! ;)

OK, I'm outta here. Have a good one!
