Sweet Blast From the Past

Hi Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 fans! Linda here fresh off my beach vacation and may I say I did not want to come home! We rented a beautiful house and spent most of our days outside soaking up the sun and surf. Pictured here is my favorite lighthouse from the Outer Banks, NC, Cape Hatteras. Fun fact, the actual lighthouse was moved in 1999 from its original location at the edge of the ocean to safer ground 2,900 feet inland. Due to erosion of the shore, the lighthouse was just 15 feet from the ocean’s edge and was in imminent danger. Such a majestic sight.

Let's get on with it and announce the winner of a $12 gift certificate from Sami Stamps. Congratulations go out to...
