A Lion At The Beach

These are my two nephews, Braden & Zachie.  We are lucky enough to live between two lakes, so quite often in the summer you will find us at the beach. (My sister is a school teacher, so with the summers "off ", this works out quite well.) On this particular day, Braden, wouldn't take his lion towel see this way he didn't have to wear a hat and the towel blew like a cape in the wind.  

For this layout I cut the photo matting out of a file folder, ran the edges through glue (MS Permanent) and then through sand. (from our local beach)
* Other Materials Include:
My Mind's Eye - Stella&Rose; Hattie Remember Roses
My Mind's Eye- Sticker, Tags & Brads
Core'dinations Cardstock - Blues
Unity Stamp- Distressed Dots
Tim Holtz- Distress Ink(s); Chipped Sapphire, Weathered Paint
Thickers- Jewelry Box, Chestnut ('LION')

Thanks for taking a look, any feedback is appreciated!
