Summer Days


Mami Doodles - Summer (Boy or Girl)
Cupcake Craft (95) - One For The boys
Sketch Saturday (107) - Sketch
A Spoonful Of Sugar (107) - Summer

Here's a little beach scene that I've done using a fantastic digi stamp from Mami Doodles that I recently won, thanks Elisa.
Elisa does some really gorgeous digi stamps so why don't you pop over to her blog and have a look, you won't be dissapointed.

I have followed the great sketch, but instead I have replaced the mats behind the image with a HUGE sandcastle (I think I went a bit mad there!) and cut the boy out so that he could stand in front. The boy has been coloured with Promarkers and attached with foam pads. The seashells and starfish are buttons. When I finished the two top corners looked a bit bare but I managed to find a couple of peel-offs that were suitable.

Well, I only hope that sandcastle doesn't topple over and bury the poor little lad...
