Beach Pretty and Sweet Shack

Hi there!  Summer is just chugging along here and before we know it the kids will be back in school and then crisp Fall air will turn our thoughts to apples and pumpkins and falling leaves...  But not quite yet.  In the meantime, we still have some warm days ahead (right now we are in an uncomfortably hot, humid streak)!  We did a beach weekend last week and it was perfect, though!  But boy did I wish I looked like this in my bathing suit!

This is Beach Pretty from Saturated Canary.  She is colored with Copics and cut using Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).   

  
This was a custom make for a retirement.  The theme was inspired by the recipient's chosen retirement location and love of flip flops.  I used a few of my La-La-Land dies, of course!  Featured here are Sunburst, Lighthouse, Shell Border, Wave Border, Diamond Wire, and Large Lacy Border. The flip flops are from Surf's Up Shapeabilities (Spellbinders).  I embellished with a metal Compass and Game Spinner (Tim Holtz) as well as lace, cheesecloth, a flower, and pearls from my stash.  The little bottle that I filled with glitter is also Tim Holtz.  The sentiment is from LLLC's June 2015 kit, but you can get it now with Summer Fun Marci.  It is cut using the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics from My Favorite Things.


 

I still can't quite believe that Krista will be closing the Saturated Canary shop at the end of the month!  But the good news is fans can sign up for a year's subscription to continue getting new SC digis through September 2017 (click HERE to read all about it)!  I own a ridiculous amount of Krista's images, but I love them all and hope to continue using them for years to comeThis one features Sweet Shack from Saturated Canary.  I made it for my co-worker who recently closed on her very first house!  The image is colored with Copics and cut using Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders). 



I used Open Leaf Flourish, Heart Banner, Lattice Border, Open Hearts Doily Border, and Heart Fan dies from La-La-Land Crafts.  The picket fence is My Favorite Things and the butterfly and grass border are Martha Stewart punches.  The flower ribbon, flowers, rhinestone flourish, and Tim Holtz metal Word Key are all from my stash.
 




Thanks for stopping by and stay cool!
