"Summer Fun"

When I was growing up, my grandparents would take us to Rocky Point in Rhode Island (and yes, we would travel in the RV). It was a small amusement park where we would go on the rides, get a big 5 gallon container of clam chowder, and we would fish on the rocky shore. This week's card reminds me of those wonderful summer days we would spend there.

If you want to see some old photos of the park, click here.
Materials used:
Life's a Beach cartridge ~ pelican 3" and wood stump 2" ~ p. 78
Life's a Beach cart. ~ seagulls 1" ~ p. 79 and crab 1" ~ p. 72
Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder
Swiss Dots embossing folder
cloud brads
wiggly eyes

Now it is your turn to create a "Summer Fun" card for this week's Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge. You may use beach balls, sand castles, summer drinks, etc. There are so many choices! I  am looking forward to seeing your projects throughout the week.

Be crafty,
Georgiana :)
