Too Lazy to Bake, but I can still Decorate

Too hot, too lazy to make the cake, leave it to the stores.  They charged me half price for a 1/4 sheet with just plain buttercream smooth frosted.

But we are going to be celebrating mine and my aunt's birthday down on the beach at sunset.   We love the lake and it is a must visit whenever she makes it to town, so in honor of our traditions I decided to do a little beach cake.

I used Life is a Beach and PPDU for the seashells.  All are cut from the Cricut Gumpaste.  I had some trouble with humidity in the house yesterday so the GP was being fussy, but all in all I don't think they turned out too bad.  The green chair I rolled a bit thin and it was hard to score the lines without going through so it does not look the best but we are just going to pluck them off anyhow.

I still need to hand cut a few little wine bottles to sit next to the chair.  I had cut some flip flops but they were way out of proportion to the chairs so they got feed to the dog.

I still am waiting for the beach umbrella to dry all the way also, it will be between the chairs.
I used crushed graham crackers for the sand.  Since I have never baked really before my gel colors are very limited, hence the seashells not being the correct colors.
