Now, let me explain why I don't like the beach...I live 11 minutes from the beach. I can get on Merrill Road and drive STRAIGHT to Hanna Park. It's that easy. When was I last there? OVER a year ago. *insert audible sigh here. I just can't stand sand. I don't like sea spray. I don't like GRIT in my mouth. I don't like feeling like I ate a box of salt when I get home. Oh, and I hate the smell of WET DOG that gets in the car and NEVER leaves, no matter how much Fabreeze, BLEACH, and baking soda you pour in there....So, now you know why I don't like the beach. However, I LOVE sea SCENES! LOL!
I LOVED the look of this room, with the porch railing, funky colored pillows and ocean outside. I also felt this home had pillars, so I added a new Shapeabilities die! The seashell and Starfish are also Shapeabilities. I used my Copic airbrush on EVERYTHING! LOL! All the shapes were WHITE!

I totally agree with your comments about the beach!! I haven't been to one in about 15 years - yea!! - don't care if I ever go again!! Don't forget about the jelly fish and sharks that make the salt water so desirable NOT!! Give me a cement pool any day of the year!! But I too love sea and beach scenes and your is very lovely!! Beautifully done as all your cards are!! Say hi! to Speedy. He is a black and white cat is he not. My friend has a black and white cat that has a coat that is so thick, soft and shiny that we love to touch her, but she is not very friendly and will hardly let anyone touch her.

I agree with EVERYTHING you said about the beach. The one thing you left out for the California side of the country is that the wind is cold!!! I live close to the mountains in Colorado and LOVE it!!!!
Love beach scenes though and this is certainly a winner. Great scene. Great shading!!! tfs.
