When I saw this sandcastle pattern in Family Fun, I knew I had to make something with it.
I wanted to make a card, but the pattern is too big and I haven't had a chance to re-size it yet.
Then I realized Saturday starts August, and I needed a new decoration for our bulletin board.
What better end of the summer thing is there than a beach/sandcastle?
Since it's for the church bulletin board the flag reads "Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice." Philippians 4:4

I love the sandpaper! I knew what it was as soon as I saw it, and I don't know why it never occured to me to use it. It's absolutely perfect in looks and texture. Thanks for the great idea!
