Inspired By ... #30 pool time

What draws your eye in this photo?
You might be surprised, but those little side tables are my favorite element!  Now... to pull it off! 
I found the perfect little background stamp in my stash... and the cutest "CRABANA" boy bearing a pineapple drink!!  lol

How about those gorgeous Moroccan pool tiles?  Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio makes all of those colors when you just add water!  Wish I'd thought to fill the pool with water!

So how will YOU be Inspired By #30?  can't wait to see!

EBE Beach Lady provided the pineapple drink, and crabana boy - it does NOT get old!

Adorable, Michele! Love the Moroccan pool tiles. The blend is fabulous. How awesome is that crab bringing the fun drink?! And that sunbathing penguin can't help but make one smile. Fantastic work!! :)

Barb Ghig said...

Liquid therapy? That's my favorite kind :) Your little 'Crabana' boy is too cute and I love your background! Another really fun card, Michele!

You win for the most innovative new word..."crabana", indeed. Wish my mind would take flights of fancy like yours does because you nailed the inspiration. The card just sucks everything out of the word cute.

LeAnne said...

This is almost as refreshing as the pool I was in this afternoon! Only thing missing was the drink! Adorable and beautiful colors!

Lisa Elton said...

Oh that sentiment, love it to bits!! This is as cute as it is clever Michele. Just think of your pool here as being crystal clear allowing us to see those pretty tiles on the bottom!

So adorable! Love your fun little cabana and that is the coolest background!

Hahaha ... crabana boy ... so fun, Michele ... and clever. That little drifting penguin looks soooo cool amid all the yummy 'tiling'! Hugs, Anita :)

just love your crabana boy with the pineapple and hey who needs water when the tiles look that brilliant. Fabulous card my friend and that inspiration photo - summer here I come.

I LOVE this card, Michele! It's so fun and adorable!! The Moroccan pool tiles are fantastic! Because the DOX ink reacted with water, I feel like looking at the pattern through the pool water (especially in the close-up picture.) And the fatty penguin and the crabana boy - just too cute! Hideko xx
