Life's a Beach!

There's a new Challenge at The East Wind Challenge Blog and as usual, since it's the first of the month, the DT has showcased the adorable Freebie available by signing up for the TEW newsletter (Look for the the big hot pink sign on the left of the sidebar).  Hurry to sign up, if you haven't already, because I'd hate to have you miss Aurora Bubblegun and Mint Chocolate (two of her fave flavors).  Have you guessed the challenge?  We are looking for a Beach Theme.  I've really been having fun with the no background PNG format of the newest TEW stamps and put Aurora right on the beach boardwalk in my Printmaster Program.  Wouldn't this be fun for a layout?  That's why I added the deckle edge with my decorative scissors.  I was going for a vacation photo vibe.

Here's a closer look at Aurora with her fave ice cream flavors.  I've added some Stickles to the scoops on her cone (on the die cut ones from Cottage Cutz, too) and Glossy accents to the chocolate coating....Yumbo!  The cute flag banner is from La La Land and the sentiment is computer generated. The Beach themed DP is an oldie from The DCWV Summer Stack. 

Sure could use a double dip.  It's been so HOT there with no end in sight.  My DT sisters have all done an amazing job with Aurora Bubblegum and Mint Chocolate so be sure to check out the Challenge Blog and come play along.  Remember, the theme is BEACH.  You needn't use this adorable freebie, (although I can't imagine why not, she's so cute!) nor even a TEW stamp, but if you do, don't forget to enter your project twice, once linked to the post, the second to your Blog so you can double your chance of winning.  The challenge runs through Aug 10th, but you can get the Freebie all month long and a new one each month thereafter if you sign up.  And don't forget our current FB contest, Just for a Laugh, which runs through Aug 17th.  Is is really August???

I'm entering this in the Simon Says Wednesday ATG Challenge, the Fairytale Sun Beach, Sea Challenge, the Love to Create Summer Lovin' Challenge, the A Creative Romance Fun in the Sun Challenge, Creative Corner Summer Challenge, Stampin' with the Dragon Sun Sea Sand and the Paper Shelter Summer ATG Challenge.
