City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #66- It's A Shore Thing

Hi all! It is Cheryl back with this week's challenge...and one thing I know for "shore" is that I LOVE THE BEACH! I was born and raised seven blocks from the beach and I'm pretty "shore" that at least a little bit of salt water runs in my veins. You can take the girl away from the beach, but you can't take the beach away from the girl...no matter how far I live away from it, it is still a part of who I am. So we are celebrating the beach this week with our theme, "It's A Shore Thing"! Your challenge is simply to create any beach related project. I "shore" hope you will join us!! You know how we ALL here at City Crafter Challenge Blog LOVE to view EVERY single project you share with us!

Get to know Andrea....

Hi, my name is Andrea and live in the sunny state of Florida. I currently am a stay-at-home mom to two quickly growing, energetic boys and love every moment. Crafting has been an active part of my life for the past seven years and make sure to incorporate it into my life each and every day. Color rules my creative world and materials and just making sure it is still enjoyable.
