Beach ...

Well today I have a little gift box to share by the way of a little suitcase, 
perfect for sunglasses, sweets & tissues when you say Bon Voyage to that special someone
and great to save ephemera from that special trip, tickets, shells and postcards so your 
happy memories can stay with you always.

I have used Tilda playing in the water from the recent Seaside Collection 2016.
Coloured with Promarkers, hand stitched, ribbon, twine, life buoy charm,
Flowers & tulips.  I have used a few dies from various Doohickey Box collections.
The suitcase itself was cut on my Silhouette.

The papers are from NITWIT COLLECTIONS
loving the colours in this kit, not something I would normally put together but it really works,
check out Nitwit Collections for this kit and many others, you won't be disappointed.
