It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
"...winter in the shade"... What a great description for March in Washington state. The calendar tells me that it is almost the first day of Spring, yet there is still plenty of cool, damp, gray weather out here... Sounds depressing, huh?! But when the sun shines, this is DEFINITELY one of the most beautiful places in the USA! And who ever tires of seeing the colors of the setting sun reflected on Mt Rainier?!
WELCOME TO THE SPRING FLING BLOG HOP!
We've got lots of blog candy to give away from our gret sponsors... But more on that later...
This digital image from Digi Darla made me think of all our family trips to Pacific Beach; our favorite place to spend the weekend. It's rarely ever warm and sunny, but we have the best time just hanging out and combing the beach for shells, unusual rocks, or any other interesting finds that wash ashore.
I thought it would be fun to make it 3D and add interest/dimension. The stamp on the tag is one of my new stamps from Unity Stamps. And, of course, I had to add some bakers twine from The Twinery.
