Beach Resort Sassy - My Favorite Place!

Family is so important to me and having been living away from everyone for so long, when they show up in town, I want to be there! Over the last couple of weeks, I've had the greatest time spending time with four of my cousins that I haven't seen in forever!  Larry and Brenda stopped by from Kentucky on their way to their camp in Canada, Robert and his family were here from Long Island, NY, Sean, Alice, and their two sweet boys from Seattle, WA, and my sweet Jerry was on leave from the navy and is on his way back to Hawaii.  It was so much fun travelling down memory lane with them and talking over our times growing up.  Man, were holidays hard on our parents when we all were together!  I have been away from home for over 30 years so for me, any time spent with family is precious and priceless.

But I'm back and have a fun, Sassy Studio Designs image to share with you. I am loving me some Sassy Studio Designs!  This is Beach Resort Sassy and I absolutely love her" in your face" attitude!  If there is one place I can be and never get tired, it's the beach, baby!  Love the water, the salt air, sand, heat, the sounds, fragrances, you name it and all things beachy are me.  Somewhere in a former life, I totally believe I was a mermaid!  Here she is:

She's worked up in some of my favorite colors - aqua and peach!  When I saw this paper pack from Basic Grey, I had to have it!  Love the clouds, banners and colors in these papers.  She's colored with copics and has some Diamond Glaze on her pouty lips and glasses and yep, some Stickles on that sassy suit!  I used a Spellbinders die around her and edged the oval with distressed inks.  I used a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  It was great fun!

Here she is close up:

I am also going to enter her in the following challenges:

She was such fun to color up and now I'm back to my crafting table.  Love my family and I love me some crafting!  Have a great day!
