Just Us Girls Challenge # 355 ~ WATER

Wow, friends was I ever honored and excited to be asked to be the guest designer for the whole month of August!!   Thank you all for inviting me to be your guest!!

This week we are asking for water to be on your card.
I don't have a whale or a fish *wink* so I pulled out PTI Guiding Light and went to town.
I made my own rock cliffs (saw a video from Sandy Allnock after this was done on how to draw and color in rocks...it was amazing), but this was already done!
I even hand drew in the white caps...my BFF, Linda helped me with that!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
 I hope we will see you in the JUST US GIRLS gallery this week,
go take a look at all the inspiration from the design team!.

Heart Hugs, friends!
