I stamped the sun ray pattern twice and cut it out with my deckle edge rectangle die. Next I inked up an acrylic block with kraft ink and stamped a background, cut out the wonky square and then stamped on the island, extending the beach with the "extra" bit in the set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sun shade and the large palms. I finished with the fabulous chillax sentiment.

On Sunday we went out to the beach at Island Lake - it feels very strange talking about beaches inland!! But there really is a lovely beach at Island Lake. We got there, set out our towels and Kathryn headed out for a swim. I had a paddle and it was just gorgeous. I managed to get a few photos of us all out enjoying the sun and sand, but unfortunately we had to leave early as Mum became quite ill. Fortunately, there were some EMTs there having a training session and they ended up with a real patient. Mum spent the afternoon in the local hospital. Mum had sunstroke!! Everyone was so nice to Mum and really took care of her. She is now being much more careful to drink a lot!!
It was much cooler when we went out this morning, and we even had some rain, but it's gone now and the temperatures are climbing again. Take care - see you tomorrow.
