I need a trip to the beach! Some Photo Inspiration at Catch the Bug.

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! It's nice to have some visual inspiration! You can choose to use the colors, the theme of the photo, or go off on a tangent because of some emotion a photo touches within your soul....however this picture inspires you, we want to see it in your project!

This week's theme is a
Photo Inspiration
(See picture toward the bottom of my post)

My card features the Bugaboo Stamps Knobby Knees Boy Vacation image. I saw the photo, and immediately drifted off to some warm, sandy spot that I could lie in that hammock and listen to the waves! *SIGH* I need to get away, I think!

My card features a Silhouette Square Nested cutting file that I used to turn the largest layer into a shaped card. Silly me........I wasn't thinking about the fact that the bottom wouldn't let the card stand up straight! Oops! I used some rhinestones, a Jolee's coconut drink sticker from my stash, and I printed the sentiment using a font called Squirrel Tracks, from Lettering Delights. My papers are from a pretty collection by Echo Park, called Paradise Beach

Here is the photo to use for your inspiration, too! We'd love for you to play along with us!
