A Beach Blanket Beauty

Hi Friends!
It's Tuesday and I have a FABULOUS image from The Busy Beauties Boutique to show you today! As soon as I saw Beach Blanket Beauty I knew that I had to come up with a very special card to use her on. Isn't she GORGEOUS? I love her sweet face and her vintage look...and most of all I love that she is curvy and not too skinny! :) This gorgeous image is in the store right now! On Thursday there will be a new Creation Station Challenge up and a few more NEW Releases added to the store...there just might be a hunk for this Beach Blanket Beauty too! :)

There are several challenges going on right now to feed your BBB appetite. And one of them is going on over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp! I totally love sketches, they help me with a starting point so often and this sketch is no exception. I think I may have taken the sketch and ran with it a little though...I deviated and flipped the components a bit. But that's what sketches and inspiration challenges are for right, to help start your mojo and then let the creative mind do the rest! :) I hope you'll play along with us! And definitely stop back on Thursday to see what's new in the store!
Have a great day!

Vavavooom! This chicky is smokin' I like that she is a little meaty around the thighs. I wish I looked this good in a bathing suit.
