Lynn carries on as hostess this month.  Lynn says things are hot in Texas this time of year.  She can't think of a better place than under the water to cool off.  So please make an under the sea scene for this week's challenge.

I used a couple digitals I have had for a long time....long before I started putting where they came from.  I apologize for not giving credit where credit is due.  The frame is a digital from Tiddly Inks.
