Dylan & Ebony at the Beach

It's a new challenge at Make it Crafty and this week's (or I guess 2-weeks') theme is "Sunshine, Beach and BBQ" with an optional color challenge of "Water."   It's perfect for those who are in the southern hemisphere and also for those of us up north who are wishing for some warmer weather!  I didn't take the water challenge but my scene screams "Sunshine and Beach!!"  Make sure you visit the MiC Blog this week and see everyone's projects.  :D

The papers I used were inspired by a gift package from Ruby which was perfect to get my creative juices going.  The image I had merged and if you look closely I'm sure you'll spot a little mistake where something wasn't masked properly - however don't look or it will stand out like a sore thumb!  LOL  I also used the yo-yo embellishment for a sun which Arabella sent me.  (Thanks ladies for the goodies!)

After the coloring was finished then I assembled the card and even used my sewing machine.  I love that little thing and have used it on almost all my projects lately.  It's a great way to finish off the edges plus I don't have to use as much glue which warps the paper a little.  And the film strip?  I love that but can't wait to use it all up!  It just so happens to be my daughter's favorite thing to play with and I often find her running around the house with it trailing after her.  He he he

I used several images on this scene from Make it Crafty including the adorable little sentiment banner.
