Let's Go Fly A Kite! ... Graphic 45 By The Sea

Since two of my grandgirls nearly live on the beach during the summer months, Graphic 45's By The Sea collection has fast become my favorite.  I need to stock up as it is some of the most classic of beach themed papers.

This is Little's first time flying a kite.  They were having difficulties getting the kite up and she just took over and showed them all how to fly a kite.

The sun is a stencil that I had used a light yellow paint to create.  It didn't really pop so I went back and drew in the edges to give it a fun look.

Thread.  After reading about this new tread on the message board I decided to search it out.  I found some beautiful layouts using thread to add another dimension to your page.
