Inspiration Monday~~SUMMER FUN!

Happy Monday everyone! Well the Birthday Weekend for my little guy was a success! We had lots of family come into town to celebrate along with our awesome friends! Isaiah had a blast and said it was one of his best birthday's ever. It makes you feel so good when you know they had a great time. We had 2 water slides for the party, but by the end of the day the bigger one had 3 large holes in it and started deflating and taking in water......we won't be buying that one again!! What's funny is that the smaller one is an older one we bought a few years ago.....and even though it has some patches, it lasted longer than the new one we just bought! OIY!!

Today starts a new weekly challenge at La-La Land Crafts. The theme this time around is:


How appropriate, right?!! The summers here in Texas are a killer from what I've been told. And from what I've experienced over the weekend they are not lying! Several of the kiddos got a little sunburned even though we put on several applications of sunscreen. It's definitely HOT and we haven't even hit August yet!!! This is why I hibernate during the summer and come out in the fall/winter, LOL!

For my card today I created a beach scene using Beach Luka and Beach Marci.

For my card I used mostly cardstock. The sand colored dp and the light blue dp for the background is from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic-Nutmeg 6x6 paper pad. I used a couple LLLC Dies on my card: the Island from the Cloud, Sun and Island Set, and the Wave Border Die. The clouds were cut out using a Memory Box Die. The Sentiment, Starfish, Sand Dollar, & Shell all came with the Beach Luka Stamp Set. I raised the large cloud and the front beach scene on pop-dots for added dimension.

Don't forget, you can join in all the fun at La-La Land Crafts by adding your creations to the Customer Gallery, Facebook Page and Twitter Feed. Be sure to swing back by the LLLC Blog on Friday to see more inspiration from my fellow DT sisters!!

It's soooo great that Isaiah enjoyed his birthday. This mama sure knows how to spoil her little guy. He he.
I like how you compinted these two sweet images and those dies on your card. You created a wonderful scene. Hugs! xx
