Bathing Beauty Spoolie

I played along in a swap at Blissful Art Swaps recently.
Here's what I made for my partner Darlene.
We were to use a wooden spool and the theme was Bathing Beauties.
I decided on a base of a sea shell slice. 
The spool became a pylon wrapped with cord and of course I couldn't forget the gull. LOL 
I made a mold and casting 
 for the sand castle from a pair of salt & Pepper shakers,
then sprinkled on a coating of sand.
The umbrella is from Tim's Rosette die.
 I love coming up with different ideas with this favorite die.
A few mini sea shells and a sun hat and she was ready to hit the beach.
