'Summer Fun'

Good Morning. It's another hot one here in Cyprus and it's my turn to choose the theme at Crafting with Dragonflies. My choice is 'Summer Fun' which seems apt for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and will bring a bit of sunshine to those needing it 'down under'!!

Here is my inspiration for you. The image reminded me of Summer fun at the beach with buckets and spades and  sand between my toes....well this part is not so much fun as I hate sand between my toes!! But the children don't seem to mind do they.

I started with A4 card stock and folded it to A5. I then browsed my Ooh La La CDs and found this image on the Shawn Jenkins collection. The card was covered in matching designer paper from the same CD. The tiny flip flops were part of the sheet of embellishments so I fussy cut those and instead of using them to decoupage the ones in the main image I decided to place them at the bottom of the layout to look as tho you are walking into the picture!!

The sentiment strip was made from scraps that matched the colours of the main card. The 'HELLO' sentiment is made up from individual die cut letters. I then fussy cut a butterfly and added it to the sentiment with a tiny 3D pad.

I hope I've brought a bit of sunshine to your day with this challenge. Do pop over to Crafting with Dragonflies (link in sidebar) and see what the rest of the team have won't be disappointed.

Thank you for visiting and have a crafty week!!


  1. Hi Wynn. So nice to be playing with you gals again for this month. Love your beachy card and the best place to be in summer. Great addition with the thongs (flip flops). I always put my feet in the water whenever I am near the beach and it means getting my feet in the sand which feels good. Looking forward to doing that when the weather 'down under' warms up a bit.
