I get a TON of sun in south Georgia.  Also, the beach is only a few easy hours away.

Since I burn so easily my beach umbrella is a little more industrial (see link at bottom).

  2. Background:  Designer paper – scrap, some edges colored with Distress Ink – Ocean (what else would it be named?!?!?!).
  3. Stamp:  So Suzy Stamp, embossing powder – clear, colored with DI – Barn Door.
  4. Umbrella:  Wood embellishment, craft paint – yellow, DI – Barn Door, embossing powder – clear.  The stand is made from one burlap thread.
