It's SQUIGGLEFLY time . . .

HAPPY Monday - JUNE 3rd!  
WOW!  I can't believe it's JUNE already ... Christmas will be here before you know it!  LOL!
Ooops ... did I just say that out loud?  Sorry!  LOL!

Anyways ... it is June and it is Monday and that means it's time for another fun challenge over at Squigglefly!  This week's SFC-2213 challenge is

(ideas: outdoors, beach, children playing, end of school, vacation, . . .)

For today's creation I have used an adorable image by Lynne Stansbery called "Buried Treasure".

Click on image to enlarge.
Isn't she adorable?  I've kept the design simple to bring focus to her and the fun she's having on her summer vacation at the beach!  I've taken the liberty of using a few other 'beachy' images I have in my stash on the front of my card, but the INSIDE sentiment is also a part of this fun stamp set (see below).

I do hope you'll come and join in on our SUMMERTIME CHALLENGE fun at Squigglefly!  The team has created some fabulous pieces for your inspiration ... pop over right now and see for yourself!
