SUMMERTIME

Okay, I should be doing a million things to get ready to leave....
but here I am doing a challenge....
I could not resist, as when I saw the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs was
"Hot Time In The Summer"
the first thing that came to mind was my newest Cheery Lynn Die
"Polynesian Sails"

I decided to "think outside of the box" so to speak....
I cut out the larger, intricate die on white cardstock and sponged
VersaMagic Aegean Blue, Sea Breeze chalk inks and Memento Dandelion on it....
I cut the little doily from red CS, folded it in half, added a punched banner for the sail...
the stamped sentiment is a Unity stamp...
the background was embossed with a bubble folder....
I think it turned out kind of "sweet"!

well, that is really it for me this week...I need to get packed!!
