Hello again everyone, getting sick of seeing me this week? Nothing for months then 3 posts on consecutive days!! Hope I can keep this up.

Exciting times today and an old favourite is back with us


is back in blogland and we are restarting the challenges with

Anything Goes

Everyone loves being on this DT and I for one, am a happy bunny to see it back up and running (well done Hazel you do such a great job!)
 My card is one that didn't get finished for a DT job in the summer so that's why it's a bit out of season LOL (or you could say its perfect for me being at the beach this week!)
I just love these images and I really wanted to play with them.

Bathing Tilda and Coastal cottages from Magnolias Summer Breeze collection all available from the lovely Janice at Sir Stampalot and the papers are Maya Designs Life by the Sea from a couple of years ago now I think. I sent Joel down the beach to get me some sand to fill the tiny bottle and I stuck a few grains on the image too.

We have this fabulous prize up for grabs to the winner from our sponsor
Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some fabulous inspiration from my lovely team mates. We have some lovely new teammies joining us, please stop by and show them some love.

Thanks for stopping by

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges.

You can post 3 times a day as far as I am concerned, fabulous card, love the rich colours and the beach huts, not a Tilda fan but you have really done the image justice. Love the shells and the little bottle of sand is a fab touch.
If you can't keep 'em up, buy a good bra.

I love the use of the houses as kind of main image & background at the same time. Works perfectly fine. Also pretty nice coloring. Thanks for sharing!
