Good Morning Friends! Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge #30

Good Morning! Today's Peachy Keen Challenge was to make a summer themed shadowbox. This picture was taken in 1991 in CA. Those cute little boys are my sons, Rob and Scott. I love the expression of sheer delight on Rob's face, while his brother plays along the shore. I am not sure of what Scott is holding in his hand. Possibly a water gun? They were always the best of friends and still are. Where does the time go?

I printed the image onto a full sheet of photo paper. I trimmed along the horizon and cut a strip from the bottom of the photo to create the waves. I used the shark and the fish from PK-952, the cute little crab from PK-950, and PK-790, Boogie Board Max. I used MSS-04 for the sun and clouds. The images were colored with copics. I hope you will play along for a chance to win. Peachy Keen always has wonderful prizes! As always thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visits. Have a great day! Oh and you will want to see what the other designers have created. You won't be disappointed!
