Happy Hopping! Hope you're having fun checking out all the awesome sets we're featuring this week.
I found this frame I bought at a LSS that used to be in my city. They've been gone several years and I really miss them. Anyway, my frame is really old and I'm glad to finally use it. It is Wild Asparagus/Happy Days Frame by My Mind's Eye.

I stamped my palm tree from the Tree Greetings set three times, paper pieced them, and popped on dimensionals. They are placed in between a couple rows of sand dunes made with Sand Dunes paper from The Paper Studio . Then, I used a Fiskars punch called Boundary Waters for my ocean. The shell is from another MFP set called Silly Shells featured last month and can be found in the store.
I didn't use a sentiment on the outside, rather will stamp it inside.

My clouds are sponged and I used a punch from a Stampin'Up! circle scallop punch and using VersaMagic Sea Breeze.

It's time to hop now and go see Toni here. I know she has something beautiful in store for you.

Or,  scan down and click on her photo.
