Whimsical Wednesday LO Challenge~~ Fun in the Sun~~

Good Morning Bloggers!

It is that time again...another Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge!
This weeks challenge is Fun in the Sun~ create a summer LO with some stamping.

I have so many pictures from trips to the beach that are still sitting in my computer.
This challenge was perfect to search through the photos and make a page!

Last year we went to Myrtle Beach for our March break. When we got there is was still chilly but sunny and the boys could hang on the beach and play...thus the sweatshirts
This LO was an idea that was brewing in my head for some time, yet it seems I have a hard time translating it to paper.
The idea was there, just after playing with it for a while it came together.

The paper is DCWV- The Endless Summer Stack. I picked this up on clearance with the intention of using but haven't had the need until now. The paper in this pack has many different textures, glittery pages and plain pages. I choose this one for the waves :)
The sun was cut using my gypsy and moving the image over the edge using the Life's a Beach Cartridge as well as the flowers. I used foam dots to raise the flowers.

The stamping on this LO is a mix between me using my Inkadinkado curly q alphabet letters and my Hero Arts journaling tag stamp. The Fun in the Sun stamp I found in the dollar bin at Joannes.

I hope you like my LO and make sure you hop over to the Whimsical Wednesdays blog to check out what the other DT members have created.

Also we have a great sponsor for this weeks challenge....Emma from My Creative Time!!
