Life's A Beach!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
So, has summer arrived in your neck of the woods?  It arrived here in southeast Alabama some time last month! We are having some very warm, sunny days and it's only going to get hotter!

Hot summer days remind me of bright, happy colors and going to the beach!
I used Mojo Monday's sketch #246 to help me bring all those elements into one card....

*Sketch - Mojo Monday
*Printed papers - The Paper Studio - "A Day At the Beach" paper stack
*Cricut cartridges - "Life Is A Beach" and "Pack Your Bags"
*Sentiment - Pink By Design - "Sandy Toes" stamp set
*Twine - "Lemonade" from The Twinery
*Metal Dolphin - charm from Michael's
*Gems- Recollections
*White Gel pen
*Small flowers - MS paper punch

*Flip Flops - "Life Is A Beach"
*Sunglasses -"Pack Your Bags" - I added Glossy Accents to the lens

*Palm Tree - "Life Is A Beach"
*Sunscreen - "Pack Your Bags"

Anybody ready for the beach?

I'm going to link this card up with several challenges:
Mojo Monday - Sketch challenge
Exploring Cricut  - Summer activity or event using 3 Cricut cuts, 2 pattern papers and 1 embellishment
Celebrate The Occasion - Welcome Summer
Sarah Hamer Designs - Link Up Party

Well, that's it for me today! I hope you have a great day and I'll be talking with you soon.
Until next time,
