I wasn't sure whether to caption this card Silly Sydney or Not-So-Silly Sabrina. Because I used to love walking the dogs along the beach when I was still living with my family. But I'd never have worn heels like that, I'd have been barefoot...and all our dogs were bigger, so I guess this is Sydney looking all glamorous so she can attract Kai's attention.
I'll have to make a second card, DH is gasping and spluttering that I didn't use a palm tree - silly man, he didn't read about Sydney having dogs who dream of the beach too - and has begged for another card complete with palm tree.
As I posted a card to Elaine this morning, I'll send this to my sis instead, who walks her dogs on the beach and just today sent me an SOS email asking for the negative of one of their wedding photos which had their dog in it :D.
5 3/4" square base. Stamped and masked the Rubber Romance image. Stamped the Shore Thing sand and waves (Tattered Straw, Faded Jeans). Masked off each strip and sponged in the colours - Antique Linen for the sand, Weathered Wood and Forest Moss for the sea, Stormy Sky for the sky, Pine Needles for the mountain, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade for the sun. Coloured the image with H2Os. Added Liquid Pearls in Pewter to give the sort of leading look that was in the teapot.

Well now don`t i just love your sister! Anyone who has a dog in their wedding photo is my kind of people! And I agree with Lesley...this beach scene looks just fine with or without...perhaps she just passed by the palm tree! TFS!!

awesome scene, Sabrina.. wonderful colouring...love the liquid pearl borders.... I agree, it would be hard to walk in the sand with those heels... I bet she took them off and walked bare foot in the sand.tfs
