My very own Seaside Forrest Gump... Run, Sasha, run...



As if he needs any encouragement, lol.
Here is my ATC for the TMTA Numbers challenge with Sasha running along the beach. One two three seconds... and he is gone... my very own Forrest Gump.
I made this LO with some of the latest photos from our trip to Viareggio. The text on the tag says: "Sasha runs along the beach like a seaside Forrest Gump - free, strong, enjoying the run with every pore of his skin - not looking back to see whether anyone follows - he doesn't care. All he cares for at the time is Sea Sun sand - and there's no stopping him".
As some of you know well, Sasha shares with Forrest Gump not only his love of running... so it's a bitter sweet reference. They are both kind, loving and have a heart of gold among other qualities.
Stamps used:
Rubbadubbadoo Beach Block/Sasha by the sea (for the ATC)
Technique Tuesday/A Gift from the Sea (for both LO and ATC)
See D's alphabet stamps for the LO
