Karens' submission....

By the Sea

Here is my very first submission for the ARTastic DT.. How very exciting!!

I just love this pic of Ash and I, it was taken at Nelson Bay last year on our Caravan Adventure from
 Cairns all the way down along the coast and round to Mt Gambier in SA.. lots of fun!! 

I've even managed to add in all the diva demands for this month:

Striped patterned paper: check
two people in the pic: check
a boat: double check.. I hand cut a boat , and Ash and I are also sitting on a boat, as well as boats in the background.. 

Thanks for such a great challenge

 hugs Karen xxx
