Message in a Bottle for StampNation Beach Vacation

I've been super exhausted this week trying to keep up with work and with StampNation's Beach Vacation, but I do love to create between my chaos. . . so it's been fun. 

But today is Kit Kraft Wednesday, the day where I showcase items made with kits that I've purchased.  I usually will showcase a monthly purchase.  However, today I'm showing a creation made with Gina K. Designs Here Comes the Sun Stamp TV Kit.  While it's not a monthly purchase, I did get it a few months ago, and I did need to get serious about using it.

And so beach vacation was perfect, as the challenge was to create a card showcasing your favorite thing to do at the beach.  Mine?  Walking the shore in search of trinkets . . . and imagining how incredibly cool it would be to find a  message in a bottle. 


I love the paper that came in the kit . . . those fun stripes and the swirly wave paper.  The bottle was stamped on white paper and I used some cork scraps to cut a tiny piece for the top. 


Perhaps there will be another beach creation using my supplies in the near future. 

Hope you found some time to create today.

  1. Debbie, i grew up in Tarriffville in the 50's and 60's and we knew a family with your last name. Could you possibly be related?

    1. Hi Priscilla . . .my husband's family has lived in Simsbury forever. If it wasn't a sibling of his, it was likely a cousin. His uncle was the town barber for many, many years as well. I think that many of them went to school in Tariffville. What street did you live on?
