Hi all! Happy Saturday! We had two birthday parties today. The second was crazy — at their home with swimming, a bouncy house, a bouncy slide, tons of food, cake, cupcakes, ridiculously yummy Italian goodies (can you say, cannolis?) — lots of kids. My two were on the go between the bouncy things and the pool all afternoon and I could use a nap. LOL! But, I need to work on things for my son’s Star Wars party next weekend, so it calls for coffee.
As I said yesterday, I was able to work on the challenges for Bugaboo’s Christmas in July
celebration. It all kicks off today with a theme challenge – show us your Santa. Since the picture provided on the CtB blog was Santa chillin’, I opted to use one of my Tropical Santas
So I printed my Santa on Cryogen and colored with Copics. I also paper pieced his shorts, hat and beach towel with Basic Grey Lime Rickey. Then I cut him out, intending to create a little beach scene. The “water” is from Lime Rickey as well. The sand is cut with MFT snow drift die-namics. His palm tree and sun are also cut with MFT dies.
Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the PTI Signature Christmas set.
