Beach-y Fun!!

Hello my friends & welcome to Thursday, hee hee!! Oh boy am I in a funky mood--giving up caffeine is soooooooooooo HARD!!! I am loopy, grumpy & super irritable--just ask my hubby, LOL! I'm hoping to get over this hurdle soon, cuz' it stinks! Why does being healthy have to be sooo hard, I ask??? ROFL! I keep thinking about how toned & thin I can be so I'll keep working, working on it---keep your fingers crossed! I think about all those useless calories I was drinking away (and no I can't stand diet soda so that's not an option)!

*****Today is your last chance to enter the oh-so-yummy BLOG CANDY over at Susana's store blog right HERE!! The prize is a set of 9 Brand New Stamps by Victoria Case for SCACD that will knock your socks off in cuteness I swear!! They will be released tomorrow morning & the DT is having a Blog Hop to celebrate! So make sure and check back for it!!***********

Moving on....I have been oh-so good these past five months and haven't bought any patterned paper (except for Basic Grey & DCWV stacks) so I went on a buying spree at All That Scraps & Emma's Paperie (oh the paper yumminess!!)! And of course I could NOT resist these cute new Sugarplum stamps by CC Designs at All That Scraps--I mean how cute are these? (All of these CC stamps are also available as digi stamps too--I like rubber tho')! I bought a bunch of these fun bath goodies at Target awhile back & just knew that I'd have stamp set to use them with! If you could see the bags of Target "gift" items I've bought over the past 8 mos. it might just shock ya, giggle---so I gotta start using more of them!!

So first up is "Surfer Emma" and I paired her with this fun Nemo-esque bubble bath soap (fish) and bath fizzy tablets. I used Lauren Meader's "Timeless Templates--Lolli-pop-Along" for both gift sets! If you haven't tried out her templates ($5 at PTI) you really should--they're so easy to put together & so many ways to use them! The fun dp is from Frances Meyer and I paired it with aqua for a nice summer pop! The flip-flops on the card are cut out & popped w/ dimensionals & then I also cut-out the flowers & popped them up too (and some stickles of course). All the images were colored with Copics and have some Shimmerz & Stickles on them!

Here are close-ups of both of the cards I did. Same layout just different stamps and sentiments from the CC Designs "Sugarplums Beach Scene" & Amy R's "Beach Sentiments".

Second set uses "Trevor Sea Shell" and he reminds me of my son sooo much--such a cutie! I used more blues on this project & the dp is from Flair Designs, perfect for this set! Aren't those whale bath goodies cute-a-licious? I've got a pink octupus & green turtle bath goodies too, hee hee--not sure what I'll do with them yet!
Just a side view to show you the holder--I attached everything with my favorite Scor-Tape so it will stay together perfectly! If you're interested in these gift sets they are for sale over on my Etsy site!! Hope you like them as much as me :o) and they were fun to do too (even w/ my caffeine deprived mopey self, LOL!).
See ya back here tomorrow for the release & Blog Hop of Victoria Case's new stamp line for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design! You won't wanna miss it!!
