You may be just starting the blog hop or have come from Heather’s blog!

I focused on the flamingos (natch!) and used this super cute flamingos at the beach image from Great Impressions. I colored with my zig markers and then added some chalk around the image. hoc june 1 (560x640)

My sentiment is from Great Impressions as well – and says it all! I added a bit of chalk to this as well! hoc june 2 (640x452)
