Marci Celebrates Summer


I just got back from a week at the beach and let me just say I *wish* I looked as cute as Beach Marci, one of the newer La-La Land Crafts images available at Stamper's Dream! I colored her with Copic markers, trimmed her out, and placed her in a "scene" (I use that term loosely) created with Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer paper collection. It's hard to see in the photo, but the sentiment "Celebrate Summer," from JustRite's Elegant Charms cling set, is stamped onto the smaller cloud to the left. The waves are die-cut with the Catch A Wave Die-namics die from My Favorite Things. The number banner along the bottom is from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer border sticker collection. The clouds and cork sun are also die-cut with MFT Die-namics dies -- Sunshine and Flat-Bottom Clouds.



The layout is the July Sketch For You To Try, sponsored by My Favorite Things. Check out this post for all the participation details and the linking widget where you hook up your entry -- happy stamping! Remember, those who participate in all twelve sketches for the year will be eligible for a mega grand prize drawing in December. Hard to believe we're more than halfway through the year now!

I'm going to scoot -- lots of catching up from being away last week, including an email backlog. If I owe you a response, you'll be hearing from me shortly. My blog has been a little quiet lately, but it's about to get wild and crazy! The next few weeks are going to be super exciting and busy -- I cannot wait!
