Adventure with a cute find

My girlfriend and I went on an adventure with the kids on Tuesday, we drove out to Parksville for their annual Sand Castle Contest, I thought that I would share with you my two favorite entries, it is simply amazing. There are two categories, single and group, Both have 24 hours over 3 days to complete their master piece, a single competitor has 10 yards of sand and a group has 20, and they have to use it all. THAT IS A LOT OF SAND!!
After seeing these unbelievable statues of sand we headed out to Coombs, where there is the most amazing market, it is called Goats on the roof. That is because there really are goats on the roof, they have a living roof and it is really cool. You can find all sorts of treasures, they have the best ice cream and all sorts of trinkets. One such thing that I found was this really cool box of wooden bugs I could not resist, they were 2$. When I sat down at my scrappy desk they hollered at me to be made into something, so I made a cute little birthday card and I plan on making a whole bunch more cause these bugs are perfect for both boys and girls.TFL :) Products used Coredinations Cardstock, pattern Paper by Jillibean Soup leaf by Maya Road, punch by fiskars and ek success
