Paper Playtime Challenge #76 - Vacation

Good Morning, my friends.  It's Monday morning again and the first Monday of the month to boot so that means it is time for a new challenge at Paper Playtime Die Cut design team.  Our challenge this month is to create a project using a die cutting machine with a vacation theme.  It is the time of year that we all start thinking about summer vacation.  I truthfully do not remember the last time I have gone anywhere for a vacation....maybe next year.  Our sponsors for this challenge is my own DT sister Sharon of MeeMee's Creations with two 6" X 6" paper packs from My Mind's Eye and The Scrapbooking Queen Royal Shoppe with a package of 4 Action Wobbles.  So please join us in this challenge for your chance to win.

I created the following 5" x 5" square card for this challenge:


Card stock ~ Recollections (including the printed card stock
for the card base)
Patterned Paper ~ from my scraps manufacturer unknown
Cricut ~ Elegant Edges "Stamp" and shadow
cut at 4 1/4"
Cricut ~ Life is a Beach "Bon Voyage" cut at 2 1/2"
~anchor cut at 1 1/4"
Cuttlebug ~ Tiny bubbles embossing folder
Stickles ~ Crystal
Sakura white gel pen
Colorbox  chalk ink ~ Creamy brown
Flowers, buttons and embroidery floss from that never ending
"Use it Up" inventory

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I still have not attempted to colour again with my Copic markers but maybe soon.  I was supposed to go for a tutorial from my BFF, Shari, this weekend but circumstances did not allow that to happen.  On the plus side, my pink castle is VERY clean and organized because instead of actually creating anything I have been cleaning and organizing.  Anyone want to buy some of the two photo boxes full of cards I have made?  LOL!!!

Okay, that's it for me.  Please join us at Paper Playtime this week with your vacation projects containing a die cut of some sort.

Until then,  keep crafting!
