The oh-so-clever and talented Ms. Julie (Masse), host of this week's Cat's Pajamas challenge, TCP Tuesday #217, has come up with the most adorable sunglasses template for us to play with this week. It is so much fun! I perused my TCP stamp collection and puzzled a bit before deciding on the "Sea You" sentiment from Whale of a Time. I think this would be so cute for one family to send to another prior to a beach vacation/reunion.
Sadly, this summer will be the first in a long, long while that we won't be heading to the Carolinas for a family vacation with my parents, siblings and nieces. I'm trying not get too bummed out, though, because most of us are still getting together for a family vacation; we're just trading a summer beach trip for a winter Rose Bowl Parade trip instead. I'm excited, even if it is a long way away!
Back to the sunglasses ... Julie has a .PDF template posted on the challenge thread and can also send you a cut file if you have a Silhouette (details are in the challenge thread). I cut mine with my Cameo and the file worked like a charm. I also did the sun and the word "beach" with the Cameo (both shapes were downloaded from the Silhouette Store). The waves were done with TCP's Wave CutUps die. The papers are from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer collection, and the little letter stickers (used for "at" and "the") are from a Simple Stories' 100 Days of Summer sticker sheet.
Wishing my fellow Americans a happy and blessed Independence Day! Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
