My feet is in the sand..and I feel a sea breeze coming in..

....although this card is not much of a beach scene. No Tilda's in swimwear here ;) Although..this is us leaving the beach after a day of lovely swedish sunny weather. We are biking on our way home and oh! Theres a ice-cream bar! And we just had to stop ;) 
(Oh...well..I´ll stop the lie you just caught me with, sorry..you girls know me to well...okay so we wouldn't exactly bike home...we strolled along the beach...OH OKAY!!!! So...we took the car! ;)) rofl! 

Welcome to my place! 
Im here to tell you all about our new challenge over at Magnolia Down Under. This week its Camilla H s turn to chose a theme and I just knew right away she would pick an awesome one!! Its OUR FAVORITE THINGS time! 

So you might think I would go with one of the oldies and goldies you've seen me use from time to time and you're right..I could have. But, really I haven't been this exited about a Magnolia stamp release as I am about the Sea breeze in some time. I mean Im always loving them but these are just..breathtaking. So they became favs immediately ;) Its been a while since I built a scene too and its something that I love as well but strangely I don't do that very often. As I finished coloring these lovelies it came to me..OMGosh! There´s hardly any space left for me to put my pim pim! (embellies) How will I survive? And with this lovely theme you probably can imagine me going wild just taking EVERYTHING out and putting it on there. Well, my scenery kind off limited my choices. So I just added some flowers because well if I hadn't I probably wouldn't have survived ;) I looooooove these lilac flowers they are just BEYOND gorge! The big rose bud was a gift from my lovely friend and now theme picker, the adorable Camilla H. She bought them at the Magnolia store in Borås for me and Ive been clinching on to them hoping the will never fade. They wont of course, they are not real - dah! But they might run out and I wouldn't like that - at all. But I decided to dig in and deck out ;) Oh phew! And...the PRETTY PRETTY pink lace was a birthday gift from another stunning friend I could never live without, miss Elise. Since its my fav I had to use it but now Im left with just a teeny tiny bit that I cant use for anything. Feel sorry for me..I asked where she bought it and she bought from Ebay. Ive been hanging around since may and I cant find it! Im not a quitter though so Im still there browsing the laces and hey...as it turns out there are other ones...he, he, he! 
The little lock is also the last piece of a Melissa Frances resin embellie pack. Gosh, LOVE IT! Its soooo shabby.  They don't come shabbier that this! No shabbotaging necessary! 
I also added some cheese cloth - cause otherwise it just wouldn't be made by me. Some crackle paint, picket fence and tattered rose and well...some gesso too. Let alone the stickle star dust - its on there too. Some buttons, the clock die from Sizzix - oh that is neat! A magnolia sentiment on a die by Spellbinders and a gold charm. 

Well, as I went into this project I was taking my (now a days HUGE ;)) LLC container out because in that store is all of my favs but as I had picked everything out I challenged myself into not using them so I will use my other stash too. I feel sad for the other stash just laying around ;) BUT as it turns out there where two items I couldn't stay away from..its Sandys own seam binding (yes! its handmade by Sandy herself) . I SERIOUSLY cannot live without it and of course...the Fran-tage had to go on here too! So my plan didn't exactly work out in the end - but Im happy with the card ;) lol
And.now Im left with a desire to work my LLC stuff again - soon! So will have to make another card tonight ;) lol (Maybe plan worked out anyway??) 

Well...now you MUST be soooo tired with me rambling on and on about my thoughts and stash. Ill just leave you here with some close ups and the hopes of your survival! rofl ;) 
Oh..before I go...just a little reminder to stop by the MDUC blog because as always my teamies outdid themselves again! As I went to add my creation my heart skipped a beat and I had to pinch my arm - Im so lucky to be part of this swell swell team!!!
