A Day at the Sea...

I hate throwing things away, and if I can salvage anything from anywhere to use in a project, I will! For this week's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge (#17 - Red, Aqua, Cream, Chocolate, and Kraft,) I reused a piece of one of my son's onesies from when he was just a tiny babe. I loved the sweet little poem on his red Janie and Jack outfit and saved it -- and now it has found its way onto this card!
