Let's go Tropical !

Happy May Day ! I hope you had a nice weekend I had an amazing one, spent all day Sat with my good friend Gail just chatting, stamping and coloring and making cards and we enjoyed a great lunch at Red Robin it is really nice to have someone who shares the same interest to spend time with.  Today I just did yard work and had a nice dinner for my son and his family.  I figured I better enjoy and play cause the next couple of months are going to be pretty busy.  Our offer was accepted on the big house so will be moving in about the 6th of June, then I need to get this house ready to rent out.  I am really excited about the move and will share pictures with you. 
Well now that the Boss Lady is back from her vacation to Maui we are ready for another challenge at the CMC challenge group, you don't have to be taking a class everyone is welcome to play along so pop on over and join us in the fun.  Our sponsor this challenge is Tiddly Inks, the lucky winner will receive a $20.00 gift cert. so what are you waiting for ?  Here is the inspiration photo.......

Doesn't  this picture just scream Tropical vacation.....it did to me and this is just how I saw it........


Yes ladies that is a great image from Mo's Digital Pencil, called "Little Umbrella" I just love this image and saw this as myself laying on the beach wishing I was in Maui with Suzanne LOL !  I have used a grahpic background and added glitter to the water and actual sand to the beach.  My image is printed on Cryogen white and colored with copics.

I added some glossy accents to the coconuts and glitter to the sun.
