Beach Blanket Bingo

I had so much fun doing Beach Blanket Bingo exchange hosted by Mallory.

I theme for this exchange was to make things found on the beach. My neighbor Hugh came up one day and was looking at my beads and after explaining to him the theme of the exchange…his reply was “so where are the beer bottles?”
