you love sand

 I have lots of awesome beach pictures of my kids - we live less than five minutes from the beach so there's plenty of opportunity.  But I really love these ones that I captured of my youngest - this is what he loves to do best at the beach - just play with the sand.
I've used these pics to make a LO using the April Sketch at Handmade By Suzanne - another great sketch by Michelle Fowler.  Loved using this one alot and for once, I've used pattern paper as the base. 
Here are some close-up's of the details:

 Some buttons - the large one is made from fimo which I've made - I have a thing for layering buttons lately!!
 another little embellishment - i've attached some star shapes and a button to a small pick - some American Craft letters - a ruffled vintage book print heart.
And here is the sketch if you would like to have a go yourself!  You will notice that I've flipped this sketch to the side.

Ok, that's my share for today - thanks for coming by.
