Beach Trip ***Sketches in Thyme***

It's time for the 3rd and final challenge for the month of July at Sketches in Thyme, and this one is an Open Challenge! Now, how does an open challenge work, you ask? It's easy to play along! Just link up a new creation you've made for this challenge using ANY SKETCH, try out a sketch from a favorite blog or maybe create your own. As long as you use a sketch you can enter the challenge!!

So head on over to Sketches in Thyme and load up your sketch!!

I used this great sketch from Creating Keepsakes Magazine and made the fun beach page from our family trip to Galveston in June.

I did some fun techniques here.  One was to use strips of paper and punch the edges and roll them up to create the "wave" effect at the bottom of the pages.  I then added some cute little fish and other sea animals in the "waves" for a bit of fun.
