Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF! Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge! The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is "Beach Babies". Perfect for the summery weather we are having here right now!

I went with Summer Bare for my image this week. This is such a sweet image, makes me smile. Love the sun hat and dotted bikini, I imagine this is how Lilah will look at the beach this summer. Phindy has lots of great images in the shop that would work out perfectly with this challenge.

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive! 

I've used the wonderful sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 158-45 for my layout. I immediately was taken with all of the circles, love this layout, will definitely use it again.

Divas by Design - 2E - #39 Summer theme
