Summer Splash Sneak Peek + Blog Candy!!!!

Hi there! I've been playing around with some of my new stuff from the Summer Mini catalog - wahoo! I am loving all of these summery, sunny images. They just put a smile on my face, especially with all of the cold, crummy weather we have been having.

This set is called Summer Splash and has all kinds of adorable beach images. I paired it with the coordinating jumbo wheel, Fish Frenzy. I love these colors together - Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.

Here's a close-up of the glitter on the star fish:

Stamps: Summer Splash, On Your Birthday
Paper: Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Fish Frenzy jumbo wheel, Wild Wasabi, Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point makers, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Pumpkin Pie wide grosgrain ribbon, hemp twine, 1 3/8" x 5/8" Oval punch, 1 3/4" x 7/8" Oval punch, Dazzling Diamonds


I do so love sharing my creations with you all, and today is my 500th blog post! I can hardly believe it. To celebrate, and to thank you for visiting, I will be giving away the following blog candy:

There's a pack of 6x6 designer paper, a clear mount Sweet Summer stamp set, a package of Basic Pearls and a spool of Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon. Just leave me a comment before 8am Tuesday, April 26th and you have a chance to win these goodies. I'll be picking one random winner and it could be you! I hope you have a blessed Easter weekend. See you next week!
