Far, Far Away

     I am far, far away from the beach.  My dad and I speak at least once a week, and his newest question, is, "Where you stay?" (HI lingo).  It's not really a question, it's more of an invitation to play.  I answer every time, "Far, Far Away".  That's our thing.  :)
     Ever since I could remember, he would start a phrase for me to finish.  It could be a rhyme, "See you later," so naturally I would answer, "Alligator".  I even made up my own when I was 4. I was proud of this one.  He would say, "Put the cage," and I would finish, "On the stage."  He let me think I was witty. :)

     He still takes the time to play, even though I am in my forties. You don't always have to be serious, you know. :)
     I feel playful today, but not in the same way as Chevron Shine.  It's more of a laid back, "Wish I were on a carefree beach", kind of feeling.  The wonderful shoreline projects at JustRite's 055 Friday color challenge are what led me there.

  Here are the colors to play with... 

I don't have beachy stamps...but circles-I do!  I wanted to play with JustRite's endless border combinations.  Think....BUBBLES!
    I came up with this:

     I even cut a notch from the corner...just for random's sake.  I mean, why not?  Unpredictable and carefree was what I was going for. 

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Thanks for stopping in!
