Midweek Magnolias-Challenge #115"Fun in the Sun"!!

Happy Wednesday dear blogging friends!!

Well it's the middle of the week and time for another super fun challenge over at Midweek Magnolias!!  For the next two weeks we want you to have "Fun in the Sun" don't we all enjoy the summer sunshine!  Our most wonderful sponsor is as always Magnolia Sweden!!

I have to tell you that the last few days here haven't really felt like summer...Saturday started off sunny and humid then it poured around 11:00 a.m. right in the middle of our garage sale...UGH!!!  What a scramble it was carting all that lovely "stuff" into the garage...I'm tellin' ya that's the last time THIS GIRL does a garage sale!!!!!  On the up side was we had a FUN and FABULOUS day with our kids and Grandkiddies...Calla, Mia and Quinn spent hours in the pool!!  Well it's been down hill from there weather wise so hoping that along with this challenge will come the weather that should go along with it!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I decided to go with a simple style...
my base and matts were cut out using Spellbinders Grand Scallop Circles...
DP is Cosmo Cricket using both sides of the double sided paper...
butterflies are Cheery Lynn Designs DL 113AB...
 here "Bikini Tilda" is sunbathing on top of "Harriet the Turtle" both are from the Sea Breeze 2013 collection...
coloured with my distress re-inkers...
 the sun is a button mounted on a circle punched base...
the "rays" are two different ribbons from my stash...
"fun" and "sun" are computer printed onto the banners cut using the DooHickey Kit #1...
 DP bow is cut using the Frantic Stamper Small Bow die cut...
 more bows, buttons and banners at the bottom of the card...
 the inside...
it's a pool party invitation...
more bows, buttons and flip flops cut from the DooHickey Kit #1...
Okay so let's hope that all our "Fun in the Sun" creations bring on the summer weather that we are all looking forward to!!  Now it's time for you all to pay a visit to Midweek Magnolias and check out the fabulous summer makes that my talented team mates have created to inspire you...then get busy and dazzle us with your "Fun in the Sun" creations!!!!
