Chillin’ Santa

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.
