Sandy Beaches...

I think it's a hoot ... all this talk about summer, sand and beaches, when I'm in the thick of a cold wet winter!  I'm sure all the challenges with summer themes are keeping my toes warm somehow, even if only in my mind!

Visit The Paper Shelter here
This week at For Fun Challenges, our theme is Sand.... Beaches..... we want to see sand on your creation it the image, texture, or even real sand!  This week, we have The Paper Shelter back to sponsor us again, woohoo!  The winner of the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate at The Paper Shelter shop - awesome!

Here is my creation for you this week, combining two TPS images.....

Ingredients: Cardstock - Terra Nova, Kaszazz; Papers - UPL, magazine freebie; Markers - Promarker Aqua, Marvy Le Plume; Glitter Pens, Gel Pens - Sakura; Gold Sentiment Sticker - Upikit; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Tiny Feathers...

After colouring my images, I did lots of fussy cutting - I also cut the girl/sand image to lift the sand with foam tape, so she appears too be behind the sandcastle... The toucan is 3D... I printed his beak and some leaves twice, and they are also lifted with foam tape.

Such fabulous images... the DT had a ball creating this week.... do go see what we created at the For Fun Challenges blog, then put in your entry.... we'd love to see your creations!

Thanks for peepin'!
