Thanksgiving at the Beach ***RR Swirlydoos***

It was my turn, second week, round 2 at Swirlydoos Round Robin. I got to follow the fabulous Manda!! The twist was to journal a Holiday tradition. Mine is Thanksgiving at the beach .We do it every year. November in Florida is gorgeous. Waking up to the roar of the ocean and a beautiful sunrise is magical on Thanksgiving morning.
I followed my Post Card Edge tutorial for the background. I used the gorgeous Beau Jardin November kit to create this LO.

I used the Sizzix Frame die for my frames and criss crossed some floss around one edge. The title echoes the letters that Manda used. I placed them on a Tattered Banner.

I created the large flower using Rose Creations die. The leaves are spellbinders colored with Glimmermist in a couple of colors. The butterflies can be found at Swirlydoos where I create files for your downloading pleasure.

I created yet another flower from the Rose Creations die using my Puffed Rose Tutorial.

Round Robin at Swirlydoos gets very creative and is always a lot of fun. There is always a design to follow (unless your first!!). Come and join in on the many creative challenges we offer. You are sure to knock out a gorgeous LO every time!!
