Summer Fun

Hi everyone,  It's Friday and that means a new challenge at

The lovely Lisa is our host this week and would like to see some

Summer Fun

Our fabulous sponsors this week are Bugaboo and Sassy Studios.
See our challenge blog for details on the great prizes to be given away.
The team has put together some wonderful inspiration for you so I hope you can stop by and play along.

I've coloured with Copics an old stamp from my collection called
 Collecting Sea Shells by Stamps Happen, Inc.
The sentiment is from Gingers House.
I received some new dies lately and they are my new favourite!
They are Marianne Creatables #LR0269 and LR0270 and are used for the white frame and tag. 
 Shape is created with MS punch around the page "Cherish".
The tassel is a Marianne Design
Digital dp is from Bearly Mine...Summer's Lace Dream collection

The top is a removable journaling tag.
