Crafting for all Seasons - Beach/Ocean Challenge

Crafting for all Seasons new challenge is Beach/Ocean and we got the chance to use some wonderful images from our sponsor for this challenge. 

Our sponsor for this challenge is Some Odd Girl!  I just love me Some Odd Girl images!  

If you haven't used Kristy's images yet go over to Some Odd Girl and check them out! 
Kristy has put up the prize of three digital images for the winner of this challenge!

This is my DT card for this challenge:
I used Surfer Kody as my image for this card.

So into the citrus colors right now so I used oranges, lime green and lemon yellows.  They are great for fun summer  cards for boys.  Kody is outlined in yellow so it looks like he was standing in the sunlight.  His hair had to be sun bleached blond because he spends so much time in the sun.

Paper Playtime's summer challenge

Hello Everyone!  Yes it is time for another Digi Monday at Paper Playtime! This monday's challenge is to create something the means summer to you.

I was given three sponsor images to create with for this challenge!  I really had fun with these images and here are the cards I created using them:

Pink Cat Studio image -  I used Hula Lily

Love Love the Hula Lily image!  She really is the perfect summer image. Don't you think?  Now I want to go to Hawaii and participate in a real Luau, eat great food, and watch the Hula dancers.  Can't you just hear the Hula song in your head?  Well I can... LOL

lollipop crafts - anything goes
paper sundaes - summer/beachy
the pink elephant - fun it the sun
crafts and me - add a flower
c inspirations - around the world
crafty catz - no pink or blue
paper cutz - anything goes

Bugaboo image - I used the summertime peeker - swimming

This image is just adorable and I think can be used in so many ways.  Jodie is incredible artist!  I just love her peeker images and of course Deacon!  What is your favorite Bugaboo image?

When I saw this image I just had to make a tag with splashes everywhere!  I used the Lifestyle craft splashes dies to achieve the splash affect.

corrosive challenges - all about kids
opus gluei - beat the heat
lollipop crafts - anything goes
Anary image - Chef Gilli

This is my first time using an Anary image and I was given the Chef Gilli.  We cook a lot here at my house so I bet this image will get a lot of use.  What do you whip up with your kids?  Between the Luau food and the cupcakes,  I am really getting hungry.  :)

So now that you have seen what I have made it is time for you to head over to Paper Playtime and show us what you made!

Take care and I hope your summer is going well!

Here is my take using the peacock image:

Using new lifestyle craft dies I created this card.  The dies were much bigger than I thought they would be so my card is pretty large.  LOL  Whimsie Doodles put out some new images of Koale and Leah that I just love.  Koale's little bathing suit is just adorable with the little fish on it.
