SHOPPING OUR STASH #211 - Don't Get Stressed. Get De-Stressed!

It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! So, what do we mean by that sub-title? Well, we want you to create a card or project based on something that relaxes you! For example, does playing a musical instrument, or baking, or coloring, or sitting ocean side relax you? Then create something based on that! Here's what I made:

 and the inside:

To me, that sentiment says it all: the beach fixes everything! And I look forward to going there later this year! (happy happy joy joy!) I used bright happy colors, and while shopping my beach themed stickers, came across these cool flip flops. Score! The stickers were so old, they didn't stick any more. I had to apply a bit of Glossy Accents on the bottom side so they would. ☺ I stamped another sentiment on the inside and added (another ancient) shell sticker.

So, what relaxes you? Why not make a card or project based on that and link it up at Shopping Our Stash? While there, please check out the incredible things the other ladies have created to wow you, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for hanging out. I hope you have a great day!
