MFT May Release Countdown--Day 5

Are you ready for My Favorite Things May Release Countdown? And, check out
the snazzy new Countdown graphics by Laina Lamb.!

This month's release is filled with summertime goodness! Day 5 starts off with
Beach Scene Builder Die-namics, and being born and bred in Hawaii, I couldn't
wait to put together this tropical scene.

I used every die in the set and cut the pieces out of colored or watercolor
card stock then ink distressed them with Distress Oxide inks. I adhered
all the pieces to build my tropical scene, and stamped the waves in the ocean.

I chose a simple sentiment made with a lower case alpha set and finished off the
card with a frame. And see that long, low cloud? It was designed as an island but
since this is "my" scene, I turned it into a cloud.

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration and peeks
at the May release. And be sure to leave a comment there for a chance to win a
$75 prize. Thanks for stopping by today!
