Stamp Something - Something from Summer Vacation

This is my contribution for Stamp Something's Challenge this week.
We haven't been away from home this summer, but on the odd beautiful day that we've had, we've walked down by the beach. We live very near to the sea on the south coast. There are several places where beach huts line the shore and it's great to see families enjoying days together in the fresh sea air.
I used a Cuttlebug die to make the huts, but cut off the chimney and re-shaped the roof of each one. I used a different Core'dinations colour for each and then embossed them with the Cuttlebug stripy folder (I'm not sure what it's called).
The tag is a MSE stamp which predominantly reads 'By The Sea' with seaside associated words as a background. The sea has been embossed with the Cuttlebug script embossing folder. The sentiment stamp is from Hobby Art.
