Beach Days with Star Stampz - The Paper Funday Challenge

Hello, Happy August and Happy Wednesday!  Today begins a new challenge month at The Paper Funday Challenge Blog.  The themes are Always Anything Goes with an Optional Twist.  The Twist this month is: The Great Outdoors.  We have 2 fabulous sponsors this month as well:  Star Stampz and Pattie's Creations.

For my project, I've colored up the most adorable Beach Days image from Star Stampz using Prismacolor Pencils.  I couldn't help but incorporate The Great Outdoors Twist into my design.

If this image were any cuter, I wouldn't be able to stand it.  I've die cut the focal image and a backing panel using stitched postage stamp dies. 

The sentiment die cut is from and I've layered it 3 times for dimension, and I've also added water droplets from Kat Scrappiness for that extra bit of interest.  

Before signing off this post, I want to announce The Paper Funday Challenge is having a Design Team Call!  We are seeking to add 3 team members to our merry group of crafters.  If you are interested, please email me HERE for all the details.  No Prior Design Team Experience is Required.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
