Beach as I remember

Hi everyone!!!
I was born in the city which has one of the longest beaches in the world.
Chennai!!! My home town.😍
And believe it or not my house is just 5 km from the beach. I have great memories associated with Marina Beach. Almost every weekend either my dad or my uncles used to take turns to take me to the beach. This is the best time to spend the Summer holidays. The waves, the shells, the sand castle that I used to build, salty air mixed with the smell of roasted Corns and fish, the fishing boats, fishing nets, the lighthouse..... every thing... absolutely everything..... I love those memories that make me smile everytime I think about them. The legend now continues with my children too.

Here's my first DT post for Crafts Dreamy Blog. My take on the moodboard. Now you see me... why I was talking about the beach...

On a cardstock, I applied Aleen's Tacky glue and sprinkled real beach sand which was a treasured possession in my stash. Using Lindy's magicals coloured the water part. With Finnabair Paper texture paste, gave the waves effect for the shore. Cut out the Lighthouse from the Bob and Betty paper and adhered to the base. I love collecting shells from the beach. Added them and few more embellishments to the base. Finally wrote my sentiment.  

Linking it to the following challenges.
