Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday



In 1989 Coke proclaimed itself "the official soft drink of Summer".  And for me it probably was!  I was 15 going on 16 and those were the lazy days of reading books, listening to music, and hanging out with friends.  It was before everyone had computers or Internet access or cell phones.  Sitting on  a towel at the lake or walking to the mall on a hazy Summer day, we were never without our Diet Coke!  Today's Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday image reminds me of those days!  Her name is simply Soda Pop, and you can make her yours by visiting the SSD Paper Craft Planet group.

Our new challenge there for this fortnight is the "Shades of Summer".  Just use some Summer-y colors with a Sassy Studio Designs image and you're eligible to enter for your chance to win two Sassy images of your choice.

It has been hot here the past few days.  Hot as in like almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit hot!  The first day of Summer was officially on Wednesday, which was the day we welcomed the heat.  Thank goodness my air conditioners went in on Monday in anticipation!  Between that and seeing all the sunny monochromatic yellow creations the team made for the current Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge #170 "Fun in the Sun" that is where my project headed.  A bit of silver and green did sneak in, but for the most part she is living in the sunshine.

Papers are DCWV from their Lemon Flower mat stack.  My image was colored with Copics, and her overalls were paper pieced with some denim designer paper.  She was then fussy cut and mount with foam squares atop Spellbinders' Deckled Rectangles.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and is cut out with a fishtail banner from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics.  Flowers, buttons, twine, and ribbons are all from my stash.  I added a few punched branches with my Martha Stewart punch.

The sketch is from Sketch Saturday (#212).  It has been a long time since I played along over there, but this one was too wonderful to pass up!  I had a lot of fun putting it all together.  And guess what I was sipping as I worked....  a Diet Coke!  I guess all these years later Coke is still MY official soft drink of Summer!

Be sure to head over to Paper Craft Planet to see what the Fabettes have created with this sweetie.  And you'll want to stop back tomorrow for our 4th mini release Saturday of the month as we continue to celebrate SSD's birthday/anniversary!  Then Sunday we start our Sassy in the City relay....  There will be a freebie available to everyone on the Sassy Studio Designs blog to get you started.  And believe me when I tell you that you aren't going to want to miss these fabulous images that Lindsay has created!  She has been hard at work drawing all month to bring us all these amazing new Sassies!
