Sharyn Polesel here, and I'm very happy to be your hostess this week for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge. My challenge for you is called Summer Fun.
My special "summer fun" this year is a trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We have rented an ocean front beach house and are taking our daughter, son-in-law and three grandsons with us for a week. We are looking forward to some family fun in the sun!
I pulled out some older stamp sets and decided to make my card a shaker. I used Life's A Beach, Follow Your Dreams (for the tall grass) and Gifts From The Sea (for the bottom sentiment.) The embossing folder is from Darice and is called Beach Waves. The banner is from Reverse Confetti and is called Double Banner Garland. My daughter used to be a flight attendant for U. S. Air, and brought me some pink sand from Bermuda, so that is what I used here. I, also, added some mini heart spangles in white and pink iridescent from Sweet Forever to the sand for some sparkle.
So put on your thinking caps and show us how you are inspired by summer fun! (It doesn't have to be a shaker.)
Be sure to upload your project to the Gallery by 8:00 PM CST Sunday, August 9th, with the tag STV15MON31.
