Not Everyone Can Wear Orange

Teddy Bea can pull off wearing orange, and doesn't she look sweet on her way to the beach.  Every thing's been shabbied and distressed right down to the ribbon.  That was fun, wonder if I'll ever have clean fingers.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Teddy Bo "Beach Bea" digi
ink - hp printer; Ranger "Spiced Marmalade", "Scattered Straw" and "Frayed Burlap"
paper - Stampin' Up "Crushed Curry" cs; Basic Grey "Ambrosia" dp; Georgia Pacific white cs

don't forget the inside

miscellaneous - copics; button brads; Martha Stewart tag punch; Stampin' Up "So Saffron" ribbon; linen twine; beach pail charm; Sizzex "Sweet Buttons" Embosslit; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
Mojo Monday mojo201 - sketch
the Pink Elephant TPE109 - Fun in the Sun
Paper Playtime #51 -Digi Monday Summer
Daring Cardmakers - Wish You Were Here (the sentiment on the tag is "miss you")
Corrosive #126 - All About Kids
Paper Sundaes #79 - Beachy or Summery
Sugar Creek Hollow - Let's Play Tag (there's a tiny tag hanging off the ribbon)
Charisma #29 - Sunshine Colours

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again. 

For those of you who visit often and read about Shamus (aka Naughty Boy) and have wondered what he looks like,  I'm adding a couple pics of the fellow. 

in a minute he will be up on his legs and wapping on the window trying to get the lizard that's outside, I think the poor little lizard almost had a heart attack. 

I have no idea why he jumps up onto this little space but he does.  He likes to walk around the columns, there are two of them and he walks around both of them.  He has also been seen walking across the buffet on the right.

Does my daughter need another excuse for not putting her clothes in her drawers

home decor as appetizer.  the wreath now sits on a shelf in the garage.   well, those are just a few of the newer pics that help to explain how he got the name Naughty Boy.
