Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is a wrong one because suffix -ly is added to the full form of an adjective, so beautiful will become beautifully – with double l. This is why
beaufituly is incorrect.
Correct spelling, explanation: to create an adverb from an adjective a suffix -ly is added to the word, for example quick – quickly. Same rule applies to word beautiful, which ends with the consonant l. Beautiful + ly is beautifully (l doubles, because it is at the end of the adjective and there is another l in the suffix). So, beautifully is the correct form and
beautifuly is an incorrect one.
