Beach Bum Layout & Announcement

Everyone likes being lazy on the beach right? Okay maybe not in the middle of a large heat wave, but overall. Here is a simple layout I made for all you Beach Bums.
I started with the beach sand by tearing the edges with a Fiskars edger. I layered my sand pieces on each other for the right look. I added a mat for a 4x6 photo to the background.
Next, I just created my beach scene all around with a lawn chair, umbrella and flip flops from Life is a Beach,some Hello Kitty Greetings clouds, and a sun off Luau. The title was cut with Cherry Limeade. After a little bit of added sparkle via my Stickles collection and a ribbon to go over my photo I was all set.
I made this fun Beach Bum layout a few weeks back as part of a Design Team Call for My Cricut Craft Room and today I can finally announce that I made the team. 
This is my first time being on a DT and I am very excited to work with the group. It is a large group and every month there is a 100 Cart Hop.  It is actually going on right now so I hope you will stop over at the start HERE and see what everyone made this month. You can also check out the new DT members and hear about Erica's fun new blog.
