It's Wednesday today and that means its a Heartfelt Creations Day !!!!
So here I am with a new project from the latest Under the Sea Collection.
The entire collection is just super beautiful and you can view the full range here at the store
Check out the  amazing DT inspirations at the Blog today

Seaside has always fascinated me. The sound of the sea, the surf, the sand under the feet and those shells and stones.... All are so pleasing to the eyes, it fills my heart with solace and calmness.
I have tried to include all the elements here in my layout and I hope you will like this project. I also submitted this as one of my DT submissions.
