Summer Classics --- the final day!

There is nothing like sitting on the beach to take in the glory of a sunrise or sunset. The sand between your toes and the wind in your hair. You can breathe in the relaxation. Well, put those feelings on polymer and you have the latest release from Lauren Pope.

Introducing...

This set features a handful of elements that you can use to create your own summertime beach scenes. I can't share too much because this set won't be released until Friday night at 10PM Central, but let's just say it has a little something for everyone - from easy to color elements to those that you can use to just let your creativity flow!!

Our Senior Design Team had a great time hitting the beach with this set and delivering some sunshine with a little paper and ink! You can hop on over to check them all out!

I really enjoyed reading your blog. I have a few blogs of my own and I always look at other people’s blogs for great ideas. In fact, not to sound like an advertisement, but if I were you, I would submit this blog to http://www.AutoSurfMonster.com and let thousands of others see it for free. I get a lot of traffic and readers from them for my blogs. Anyways, I have added this blog to my social bookmark and I look forward to all the updates.
