TPE Challenge #305

Happy beautiful Monday, everyone!
I'm celebrating a brand new, shiny week,
and one that has finally cooled off to a low *90s instead of *105.
Regardless of temperatures, I LOVE Summer and its relaxed vibe,
sleeping in, lazy days, family time, and of course swimming.
I was born and raised in Hawaii, so water is my home. ;)
Today is a new challenge over at The Pink Elephant:


I fell in love with Beach Pretty from Krista's Saturated Canary shop
and had to color her up for today's post:

She's such a doll!
I love her chic, mommy-friendly swimsuit, and her flowing hair.
I used a fun technique on her swimsuit that a friend did on her card -
instead of paper piecing a clothing item, simply color it in.
With a 0.3 copic black pen, I dotted 4-5 dots (depending on the location),
then added a red one in the center to create a flower.
Super easy and it gives the swimsuit a bit of dimension.

Be sure to enter in on the ANYTHING GOES challenge over at TPE this week!

Thank you for swinging by to see me today.
I hope you have wonderful plans for the week ahead, have a great Monday, everyone!
