Under The Boardwalk

Well you can tell it's a Bank Holiday, it's rained all flippin' day so I apologise for the (lack of) photo quality. Seeing as Summer is definitely on it's way out, I've made an ATB to remind me of sunnier times.
All stamps are from the Artistic Outpost Boardwalk set, and they've been stamped and coloured with Wendy Vecchi inks.
Still raining.....
Still raining - this guy does remind me of Freddie Mercury!
Guess what it's still raining.
I saved the best till last. This shell is one that my son Chris gave to me when he was about 3. He thought it was great fun 'cos it smelt absolutely disgusting!!. He's 21 now, but I've still got the shell. Luckily the smell has gone lol.

I'm entering this into the Artistic Outpost challenge, anything goes, Frilly and Funky  Hip to be Square, and Eileen Hull's Art With Heart which is also anything goes.
I hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x

  5. What a great ATB Sue - despite the miserable rain (which shows no sign of abating a day later!) you're block definitely brings a ray of sunshine with it. I love how each side has it's own design and how you've captured a heap of memories with the inclusion of the shell. Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny x
