Sun, Sea And Sand

Hi guys, well got some exciting news to share today. Unfortunately as you already know Open Minded Crafting is closing down so I applied for a new DT position over at
and am delighted that today I can let you know that I was accepted to be part of the team.  This is the first monthly challenge that I've taken part in and it's Challenge #70 with the theme of Sun, Sea and Sand.  We are able to use our own images for these challenges and you'll find the information about mine below.
This challenge is being sponsored by
 Dry Gulch Beads is a bead and finding store that carries a great selection of filigrees, glue-ons and charms for your paper crafting projects.  They are offering a $10 voucher for the winner.
and also
Hi my name is Bren, I have been crafting since a very early age, and enjoy many forms of it, knitting, sewing, papercrafts and gardening. Housework takes a backseat. Craftybren's  was born because a friend saw my embroidery on a card and asked if I made my embroidery to order, as she would like to incorporate onto her sewing. Although Craftybren's is mainly Embroidered Embellishments I have added to my range, as customers have  asked if I do certain things.
