When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

Dreaming of the Tropics

No, in case you're wondering, I'm not delusional. I don't think we're in the middle of summer and I'm not particularly yearning for warmer weather; after all, we've had a really mild winter here in SoCal so far.  The truth is, I have a friend who is moving to a beautiful tropical island this month and I just wanted to give her a little reminder of what she has to look forward to. 


The beach background is a Sizzix border die, the ocean 'waves' are from an EK Success edger punch, the turtle is Jolee's, the starfish ribbon: RRR, and of course Tilda and her inner tube riding the waves. I added some Prima pearl flourishes and a rather strange looking gold foil sun.
.... and, if you hadn't already guessed, Tilda and her tube are popped up on an Action Wobble!!!!
