Pile It On #28 - It's a Shore Thing

There's something sooo cute about a little girl with a pudgy belly in a bikini.  Sadly there's nothing cute about a grown up with a pudgy belly in anything.  Good thing I made my peace with that or I'd never leave the house...
This week's Pile It On challenge theme is "It's a Shore Thing".  The sponsor is  Some Odd Girl.   Check out the Pile It On challenge blog for all the details, rules, and linky thingy.  You'll also get to see what the rest of the design team has created. 

If you're living north of the equator it's summertime and what better place to spend it then down the shore.  Do you say "down the shore" where you're from?  You hardly ever hear anyone say they're going to the beach in my old neck of the woods.  But I digress... 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo Manning "Janie in July" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Rich Razzleberry" cs; Me and My Big Ideas "Destination Paradise" dp
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Chevron Stripes" die-namics; Spellbinder's "inverted scalloped circle" dies; mini brads; sun charm; embroidery floss; glossy accents; machine stitching
