Challenge #162 - Dont Be Such a Beach!

Deena Here:  This weeks challenge is called 

Don't be such a Beach 

and the idea is to use up your beach-y looking supplies...beach stamps, sand, shell fish, what ever you have going on to look hot and summery...I used the beach babes, because if they aren't summery, nothing is...however when I woke up today it was only +8 celcius outside, so there will be no beach around here today...but the warmth is supposed to return this week, so we can only hope...

Electra here.  I created a card and an ATC for a friend in North Carolina.  Do they have beaches in North Carolina?  I don't honestly know.
But I hope she likes them.
I grew up on an island, so I like beaches.  No, actually, I love them!

Rosemary here and I made ATCs as well.  I used sand patterned paper and laid out a paper blanket, a cool drink, put my sunglasses nearby and ditched the flip flops.  All the elements (glasses, flip flops, and drink) are from inchie stamps that I colored, the drink and sunglasses got a bit of dimensional glossy adhesive treatment.  (and really, isn't everything just a little better when you're at the beach?)

Jana here: I live in Virginia Beach. Yup only 10 minutes from the Atlantic, 5 if the lights are green. So the beach means MANY, MANY things to me. For this challenge I made this mini quilt.

It's about 9 inches wide and 12 inches tall. Those are real shells. The seaweed is some fiber I had in my scrapping stash. The pink starfish are beaded. They are super easy and come together super fast. It was a fun one to make. But, shhhh. It's a secret. The recipient hasn't gotten it yet, but I don't think she comes here. Ever. One day a mermaid will be on the beach. Just you wait and see.

You have until the end of Saturday 10 August to join in with your fabulous creation. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused.  
We look forward to visiting you! This is a Blog Hop!
