2 Cute Manatee Friends


I'm in a summer mood, are you?  It is BLAZING hot here in Florida,  actually it's too hot be be outside most of the day.  Even so, we still try to go outside and enjoy the sunshine a little bit everyday.  

Since it is so hot outside I was going for a "cool" refreshing feeling with this adorable Manatee Friends digital image by 2 Cute Rubber Stamps.  Since this is a digital image I created a text box and did my sentiment right there alongside the image.  Super Easy!!  Don't know why I haven't thought to do this before.

I decided to embossed the DP with my Cuttlebug embossing folder to look like bubbles.  I then twisted and glued my ribbon to look like seaweed.  Not sure the satin ribbon was the best choice for this, but you get the idea.
