#2 Beach Tag

Created this Tag with a Beach theme. Stamped the sentiment using a brown ink on paper that has the word BEACH on it. Distressed the edges with Tim Holtz paper edger & TH Distress Ink. Added some blue ribbon that compliments color of edges with TH Distress Ink.

I grew up on E coast of FL and miss the beach. Have had the chance to go to CA coast and the water is colder there; at least it was to me. Have enjoyed trips to Alaska, TyBee Island off coast of Georgia, Hawaii, Gloucester, Mass & Seattle, WA. Not been to the TX coast but it is on my bucket list.
